U.N. human rights expert has accused Saudi Arabia of violating international law by beheading an underage Sri Lankan domestic worker Rizana Nafeek on charges of killing a baby in her care in 2005. She was sentenced to death in 2007, and ignoring appeals from the Sri Lanka government for a reprieve of her life, she was beheaded in the town of Dawadmy, near the capital Riyadh, on Wednesday morning.
Christof Heyns, the U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, said on Friday that it "is clear that it is unlawful to execute someone who was under 18 years old when they allegedly committed a crime."
Rizana denied strangling the 4-month-old boy, who died when she was 17 years old. It is thought that the baby may have choked to death on a toy or other object.
Groups such as Human Rights Watch strongly condemned the execution. Heyns also said that "beheading is a particularly cruel form of execution."
Beheading is one of the most barbaric methods of execution. And for Rizana, the pain is twice as much. You are only 17, in a strange country, whose language and customs you do not understand, and suddenly you are accused of a heinous crime. You are in a country where the rule of law does not apply – a country where maids and foreign workers are mistreated, sexually abused – even murdered with impunity.
You are sentenced to death and languish in a prison for many years with the thought of being beheaded anytime. After so many years, the maid must have felt that she could survive and eventually be sent back home. Then one morning, she is lead out of the jail. She might have thought her moment of freedom has arrived. But you are only being escorted to the city center or a field forced to knee, and then her head is chopped off. The sheer inhuman horror and barbaric barbarism of Saudi beheading, one may watch this shocking video.
What kind of country, what kind of people, could commit such savagery, such a crime against humanity in the 21st century?
But Saudi Arabia is only following the teachings of the Quran and the example of Muhammad, who personally beheaded kafirs. Islamic God is a barbaric murderer, who instructs Muhammad to torture and behead kafirs. Quranic verses that dictate beheading Kaffirs:
- 5:33 “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution (by beheading), or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;”
- 8:12 “I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off.”
- 47:4 “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), strike off their heads; at length; then when you have made wide Slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives”: thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens.”
- 9:123: “Oh ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers and let them find harshness in you.”
- 2:191 “Kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out.”
- 5: 45 “We ordained therein for them: “Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear. Toth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal.”
- 2:193 “Fight them on until there is no more tumult and religion becomes that of Allah”
- 9:29 "Fight those who do not believe in God and the last day... and fight People of the Book, (Christian and Jews) who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute (Zizziya tax) by hand, being inferior.”
- 8:17 It is not ye who Slew them; it is God; when thou threwest a handful of dust, it was not Thy act, but God’s…..” (Allah is a real merciful indeed!)
Prophet Muhammad himself beheaded and crucified people, molested a child, raped women and took them as sex-slaves. His great, inhuman crimes are recorded in the Quran and Hadith.
Prophet Muhammad – the first brutal Jihadi Islamic terrorist
Murderer: Regarding the poet Ka'b bin Al-Ashraf, who had mocked him in his poems, Muhammad asked: "Who is willing to kill Ka'b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?" One of the Muslims, Muhammad bin Maslama answered, "O Allah's Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?" When Muhammad said that he would, Muhammad bin Maslama said, "Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab)." Muhammad responded: "You may say it." Muhammad bin Maslama duly lied to Ka'b, luring him into his trap, and murdered him. (Bukhari 5.59.369)
Torturer: After conquering Khaybar, Muhammad ordered the torture of the Jewish chieftain – Kinana to reveal where he had hidden his community’s treasures.
When he [Muhammad] asked him about the rest, he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders… "Torture him until you extract what he has," so [the torturer] kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. When the torture did not work Kinana was beheaded. (Ibn Ishaq, p. 515; Tabari, vol. 8, pp. 122-123)
Savagery: Then he ordered for [sic] nails which were heated and [the tribesmen] were branded with those nails, their eyes, and they were left in the Harra (i.e. rocky land in Al-Madina). And when they asked for water, no water was given them till they died . . . . (Bukhari, Book of Jihad, no. 3018)
“When the Apostle of Allah …cut off (the hands and feet of) those who had stolen his camels and he had their eyes put out by fire (heated nails), Allah reprimanded him on that (action), and Allah, the Exalted, revealed: "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Apostle and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is execution or crucifixion." (Abu Dawud, no. 4357)
Terrorist plunderer: Bukhari: V4852N220: “Allah’s Apostle (Prophet Muhammad) said, “I have been made victorious with terror”
33.26-27: And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives. And He caused you to inherit their land and their homes and their properties and a land which you have not trodden….
This verse was about Muhammad’s attacks against Banu Quraiza tribe. The Jewish tribe in Medina was suddenly attacked by Muhammad and his soldiers. The tribe was defeated. 500 to 900 adult males were beheaded. Women and children were enslaved. Muhammad took as a sex slave Rayhana bint Amr. The story is in Sahi Bukhari 5: 59:448 and Sirat [Ibn Ishaq, p. 464]
8:67: It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter.
Muhammad said: "Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him" (Bukhari 9.84.57).
Saudi Arabia is following the divine laws of God.
Allah sent down the Quran as a mercy and guidance for mankind to be implemented in all aspects of our life. Its implementation led to the elimination of poverty, greed, crimes and social evils. It brought peace, security and prosperity in past.
We have seen how the Prophet of Islam had amputated the hands and legs of criminals from opposite sites, which is divinely sanctioned by Islamic God in verse 5:33. The beheading that is practiced in Saudi Arabia is certainly much more civilized than the way the merciful prophet of Islam treated criminals.
In sum, Saudi Arabia – in practicing beheading – is simply following the sacred law of Allah, albeit in a somewhat civilized form in the 21st century.
