SAUDI CLERIC MURDERS HIS 5 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER – Look closely at the photograph below as this is the Saudi Cleric Fayhan al-Ghamdi who raped, beat and finally murdered his own daughter, Lama al-Ghamdi. This is the face of pure evil and if this is what the Islamic faith is about then is it any wonder that Western society views it as arcane and barbaric.
Little Lama al-Ghamdi was just 5 year old when she died. The doctors had reported that she had died from her injuries, including a crushed skull, severe burns, broken ribs and fractured left arm as well as extensive bruising. Lama had also been repeatedly raped by her father, who attempted to justify his actions to the Islamic court by saying he feared she was not a virgin.
The court case has attracted much international media attention and in a time where the Saudi’s, and in particular the Royal Family, wants to portray the Middle East and Muslims as a gentle society of law abiding citizens and where religion is followed to the letter.
In an attempt to quash external criticism the Saudi Royal Family have now blocked Fayhan al-Ghamdi’s release from prison, although women’s rights groups in Saudi, are calling upon the courts to uphold Islamic law and put Fayhan al-Ghamdi to death by beheading him.
The outcome of this case could well do the image of Saudi Arabia an awful lot of harm, regardless of which way the courts rule. There are several instances that could play out, for example:
Some are voicing their concerns that Fayhan is likely not to serve any more time in prison and certainly won’t receive the death penalty because his is a cleric and that ‘blood money’ has already been paid, which is sufficient enough.
If the death penalty is give and he is executed then Human Rights Groups will no doubt step in to admonish the barbaric act.
If the first scenario is played out, which many believe to be the case, then concerns are for the safety of Fayhan’s other two children. Many are voicing their concerns that he could end up murdering them without any consequences.
Now you may find this incredible to believe but many Islamic activists and clerks are calling for the release of Fayhan as under Islamic Law a father cannot be held accountable for the murder of his children.
The Islamic culture is not something any Westerner can fully comprehend and many simply do not want to be part of anything that allows a man to rape, torture and murder his child in the name of religion.
