WTF: ‘Saudi Arabian woman executed for “sorcery” ‘ !! OMG …be Afraid.

Excuse me for askin’ But, WHAT CENTURY IS THIS ?

News from RIYAHD, SAUDI ARABIA: Saudi authorities have executed a woman convicted of practising magic and sorcery. The Saudi Interior Ministry says in a statement the execution took place Monday, but gave no details on the woman’s crime. The London-based al-Hayat daily, however, quoted Abdullah al-Mohsen, chief of the religious police who arrested the woman, as saying she had tricked people into thinking she could treat illnesses, charging them $800 per session. The paper said a female investigator followed up, and the woman was arrested in April, 2009, and later convicted in a Saudi court. It did not give the woman’s name, but said she was in her 60s. The execution brings the total to 76 this year in Saudi Arabia, according to an Associated Press count. At least three have been women. – – more from Huffington Post

  1. The law should be respected as every country law is different:

    Aafia’s tragic fate

    SEPTEMBER 24, 2011 SAJID BADI-UZ-ZAMAN
    With Dr Aafia Siddiqui completing one year out of her 86 year jail term in a US prison cell, the campaign in Pakistan for her release by ordinary citizens as well as her family has gained momentum. Her mother has revealed that Dr Aafia is kept under inhuman conditions; her jail cell is six feet long and she is not even allowed to recite the Holy Quran. A heavy sum of $4700 was charged for a short telephonic conservation with her.

    So far, the US government has rebuffed all appeals for her release despite the fact that evidence against her is so weak that it makes a travesty of justice even under the US criminal justice system. The thing to note is that she had only allegedly pointed a gun at US marines in Afghanistan without killing anybody and the US courts awarded her a harsh sentence of 86 years.

    Compare this with Raymond Davis, who had killed two of our innocent citizens, but was safely repatriated to the US. On the one hand, we are letting American killers go scot-free and on the other, the US is punishing our citizens for merely being Muslims. The government must put pressure on the US to repatriate her to Pakistan, where she would have the opportunity to be with her family.

    The issue is furthermore a source of fuelling anti-Americanism in the country and severely damages Washington’s credibility in the world.
