Prominent Saudi Cleric Released After Paying “Blood Money” In The Alleged Beating Death Of His Five-Year-Old Daughter

article-2273171-1755D803000005DC-483_634x387Saudi preacher gets fine and short jail term for raping and killing daughterThe Saudi legal system has a new outrage for the world. This case involves a prominent cleric who confessed to beating his 5-year-old daughter to death. Reports say that Fayhan al-Ghamdi doubted the girl’s virginity. Various sources reported that she had a crushed skull, broken ribs, broken back, burn marks, and had been repeatedly raped, while others reported that Lama al-Ghamdi was raped and burned. Fayhan al-Ghamdi often appears on television to discuss Islamic and moral questions. He was freed after paying just $50,000 in “blood money” under the primitive Saudi legal system.

Fayhan al-Ghamdi only spent a few month in jail and admitted to using a cane and cables to beat the child. Witnesses said that he doubted the five-year-old’s virginity and had a medic confirm her virginity.

He agreed to pay her mother the blood money and the Saudi judge declared that that was sufficient punishment for the cleric. By the way, the $50,000 is the going rate for a girl . . . a boy is twice as much under the sexist Saudi laws.

Of course, they are still cutting off the hands of thieves in the Kingdom and imprisoning fortune tellers but beating your five-year-old daughter to death is a matter for a simply money order.

The continued reference to this as a “legal” system and these individuals as “judges” degrades the entire profession.

  1. It is time for the US to run not walk away from the houseod Saud. Saudi Arabia is a vile place because of the authoritarian gang that runs it. They sue religion to excuse their excesses just like this so called “cleric”.

    We protected them from Sadam. Why did we do that? Treasure and lives to protect this king of system. Treasure and lives to protect a familynthatnhappilu provides money and support tonthenworst of the worst.

    As to this “cleric”, stoning anyone? That certainly would be a punishment he would heartily support. One can hardly imagine the pain and fear he subjected his own daughter to in her last hours. This is the face of evil.

  2. Blood money is an option of mercy to a criminal that gives the victim a n opportunity to get some compensation and be merciful. . The mother accepted it. It is a variation on what has been and is done all the time in the West with lawsuits. It mixes the criminal ansd civil penalties and obligations. Not knowing more, my objection is that society still has to deal with him.

    “when are decent Muslims going to put a stop to this madness?”

    When are decent americans and swedes going to cleanse their own houses.

    Sadly, the top headline today in the free Swedish paper Metro, is about a 70-yearl old man who sexually molested a five year old girl that he was babysitting. Not relatives.

    I would castrate the cleric and feed the dogs. Followed by his entrails, inch by inch. Where the dogs fight and pull them out themselves.

  4. …if that is a problem for their legal system, and,… and,… all professions of law. just think (…up) what the norm is doing here (hic) while every one is getting drunk off of the holy spirit. (hic)
    but every dog has his day and, I know the commerecial is out there. sew, sue baaaaaa ruse.

    sew, if you think you think so clearly how did the angels get by you when it has wings and no air in space. wouldn’t a U.FO. would be far more efficient? I have seen shows about them. what would oxygen deprivation do when JESUS was taken up into the Heavens as written. (hic) I tell the atheist how to destroy all religion and even they deny the truth. hic!

    WHO MAKES YOUR LAWS? AND WHO CHANGED MINE?
    now a word from capital one with sven and the alligator moat, with hot oil commerecial, (hic.)
    GOD went commerecial and got nothing as written. so why do you complain to your elected officials who go to church, and follow Your churches that deny GOD. after all every government does the same.

    their goverment is cliaming ALLAH. WHO MAKES THEIR LAWS, AND, WHO CHANGED MINE?

    you can’t fix stupid but it will DAMN sure make you … (HIC)

    • You could not be more wrong. The devil watches the ticking of the clock thinking that his end will be any second on that clock perishing in Gods glory seeing it as hell = a devouring fire.. That is what religions did not want you to know. How can trebling fear anticipating their ultimate end have any faith in it?

    • Satan is in him willingly doing to that girl what the devil in the devils jail wants to do to God not able to get near to his glory, and live. Satan out of frustration lashes out against souls in his unseen jail. Lost souls in the devils jail are waiting for their end of all ends. NDE people seeing that jail think they are seeing hell.

  6. As a humanist, it’s stories like this that remind me why religious fundamentalism must be opposed, and why this area of the world needs an Enlightenment period, as Christianity did 300 years ago. There have to be freethinkers like THomas Paines and James Madisons in that area of the world

  7. the guardian of truth would then know that it should never disagree with GOD.

    it is written in Mayan Prophecy that a white man would come in the end of times. did any christians inform the Mayans that the Mayans ARE correct? did any church blow Gabriel’s Horn? it’s written that the church, and the antichrist would assume the powers of god.

  8. Here in the Enlightened USA it would have been OK for this child to have been pulled apart and her remains sold to a medical supply house if she was still in her mother’s womb.
    How can a nation of babymurderers claim to have any moral standing to condemn this murdering thug?
