Then they hanged or beheaded the rest of his family. Yet another example of Muslim on Buddhist violence in a country where Muslims are only a small minority.
In Southern Thailand Muslim gunmen continue killing and threatening innocent citizens. The Muslim insurgents have threatened to kill 20 teachers and have distributed fliers that said, “WANTED: 20 Deaths of Buddhist teachers.” Muslim terrorists object to the education system which teaches Buddhist culture that is not acceptable in Islam. The attacks are intended to force Buddhists to leave the region because Muslims want to create an independent Muslim nation in the three southern provinces.
A popular Saudi Arabian television preacher was found guilty of murdering his own 5-year-old daughter because he doubted her virginity, as reported by The Daily Mail (of London, England) on Feb. 4, 2013.
Although found guilty of murder, Sheikh Fayhan al-Ghamdi was released after being fined $50,000 (£31,000) as “blood money” under Islamic Sharia’a Law for the death of his child.
Ghamdi had been incarcerated since last November and the presiding judge ruled the handful of months was sufficient time behind bars.
Little Lama al-Ghamdi died this past October after suffering multiple and horrendous injuries at the hands of her father.
In line with Sharia’a Law, a father cannot be executed for the slaying of either his wife or any of his children.
The $50,000 blood money presented to the girl’s mother is half the amount if the murdered child were a boy.
According to press reports, Lama suffered the following injuries:
- A broken back.
- Raped multiple times.
- A crushed skull.
- Numerous burns throughout her body.
- A broken left arm.
- Multiple broken ribs.
