Beheading with the Sword is not new to Saudi Arabia. All visitors to the Kingdom are advised of the consequences of certain crimes which is death by beheading.
However this year 2022 has witnessed more beheadings in the kingdom than usual. It could be because of the increase in crime rate all over the world and in the kingdom itself.
Crime is crime, and drug related crimes must be dealt with with the seriousness they demand and command. Whatever any nation, society or family may do to fight and stop dealings in drugs should be most welcome.
Civilization includes strong moral values and enforcement. Criminals should not be allowed to intimidate or coerce enforcement.They should be encouraged to face and embrace the direct consequences of their decision to plunge into crime, especially Murder and Drug Peddling.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia executed 81 people on March 12, 2022, the largest mass execution in the modern history of the country, eliciting outrage from United Nations and non-governmental human rights organizations.
U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet issued a statement March 14 saying that the executions did not conform to “international human rights and humanitarian law and may amount to a war crime.” “I condemn Saudi Arabia’s mass execution,” she said.
Saudi authorities asserted that the prisoners, who had been tried in special Saudi terrorism courts, had been able to exercise “their full rights under Saudi law.” A statement released by the Saudi Ministry of the Interior claimed that the prisoners had committed “multiple heinous crimes that left a large number of civilians and law enforcement officers dead,” including “the murdering of innocent men, women and children” and “allegiance to foreign terrorist organisations.”
However, the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights reported that 41 members of the minority Shia Muslim community who had taken part in anti-government protests had been executed, as well as seven Yemeni nationals and one Syrian detained in connection with the Saudi government’s military interventions in their countries. The European Saudi Organisation for Human Rights (ESOHR) said that it found multiple cases in which defendants had been denied access to a lawyer, were tortured into signing confessions, and been unable to communicate with the outside world.
ESOHR reported that this was fourth mass execution by Saudi authorities in the past decade. The March 2022 mass execution, ESOHR said, “was preceded by two massacres in 2016” in which a total of 47 people were beheaded, and the beheadings of 37 people in 2019. The March 2022 mass execution was reportedly the largest in modern Saudi history, surpassing the January 1980 mass execution of 63 militants convicted of seizing the Grand Mosque in Mecca in 1979.
The mass executions exceeded in one day the 67 executions Saudi authorities carried out in all of 2021 and the 27 Saudi executions in 2020. Amnesty said the executions brought Saudi Arabia’s total of executions to 92 so far in 2022.
Just about 6 days ago the Kingdom beheaded 12 persons including Pakistanis and Yemenese . The world is changing and people should also know that their criminal actions change the world negatively and they have to STOPPED.
Saudi Arabia according to Amnesty International ranks 5th among nations known to beheading and public executions for crimes. The leading nations are, Iran, Iraq, China and Egypt. Those who must live in such nations must accept to abide by the laws of the nations.
African Nations especially Nigeria should also understand and accept the full implications of Islamization as it is engulfing them at very fast speed.
