Burning human beings alive

I have heard lots of terrible stories about humans been burnt alive and i decided to do a little research about this phenomen before voicing my opinion.
Death by burning simply means deliberately causing death through the effects of combustion, or effects of exposure to extreme heat, has a long history as a form of capital punishment. Many societies have employed it as an execution method for such crimes as treason, rebellious actions by slaves, heresy, witchcraftand perceived sexual deviancy, such as incest or homosexuality. The best known type of executions of death by burning is when the condemned is bound to a large wooden stake. This is usually calledburning at the stake(or, in some cases, auto-da-fé). But other forms of death resulting from exposure to extreme heat are known, not only by exposure to flames or burning materials. For example, pouring substances, such as molten metal, onto a person (or down his throat or into his ears) are attested, as well as enclosing persons within, or attaching them to, metal contraptions subsequently heated.Immersionin a heated liquid as a form of execution is reviewed in Death by boiling.
Cause of death
For burnings at the stake, if the fire was large (for instance, when a number of prisonerswere executedat the same time), death often came from carbon monoxide poisoningbefore flames actually caused harm to the body. If the fire was small, however, the convict would burn for some time until death from heatstroke, shock, the loss of blood and/or simply the thermal decompositionof vital body parts.
Practices like this started long ago and unfortunately it was passed along to the younger generation. It’s practiced in nations like india, nigeria and palestine {not legal though} where a young teen was burnt alive.death by burning is used as punishment for criminals but the truth is that there is crime so severe to merit death by burning,there are other forms of punishment that can be used,please lets do our best to discourage this deadly trend.
