Woman Faces Beheading For Witchcraft
Saudi Arabia – A Sri Lankan woman is facing decapitation by sword following accusations of witchcraft from the father of a 13 year old girl. The woman came into brief contact with the girl at a local shopping mall and allegedly cast a spell on her. But how does the dad know this?
According to reports in the daily Okaz, the man told authorities that his daughter “suddenly started acting in an abnormal way” which apparently was enough to determine that the Sri Lankan was in fact a witch, and for the Jeddah police to arrest her.
The penalty of death by decapitation is of course derived from the principles of Wahhabism, “a strict form of Sunni Islam”. Because Saudi Arabia doesn’t really have a standard criminal code, penalties are typically based on Islamic Sharia law and interpreted by whatever criminally insane judge is presiding over case on any given day.
Think it can’t really happen? Just ask the family of the 60 year old woman who was beheaded for sorcery last year.
Of course these rules don’t apply to the wealthy ruling class of Saudi Arabia. They’re protected by a convenient clause in Sharia law that allows them to pay Diyya or “blood Money” in event they commit a small crime like, oh say, murder for instance.
