“I did not kill. There is no God but God. I did not kill…Haram. Haram. Haram. Haram. I did not kill. I do not forgive you. This is injustice…” Final words of Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim seconds before being beheaded in the public streets of Mecca.
One of Islam’s latest act of barbarism, is the beheading of Burmese woman, Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, a resident of Saudi Arabia was convicted of the sexual abuse (rape) and murder of her seven-year-old stepdaughter (beaten to death with a rod). The stepdaughter according to some reports was raped with a broomstick.
Basim proclaiming here innocence until the end was dragged through the public streets of Mecca by four police officers, forced down and beheaded. The incident occurred a week ago while the world was focused on the caliphate that has expanded into Europe (not that it would have made a difference).
While being held down the woman screamed the Islamic shehada — ‘There is no god but Allah!’ (in an effort to safeguard her life) and the word ‘haram!’ (i.e., it’s a sin to kill her, based on her claim that she is innocent), and ‘You are unforgiven!’ The rest of her constant yells consisted of ‘I did not kill!’ and ‘this is unjust!’
According to human rights activist, Mohammed al-Saeedi, the Saudis normally administer some sort of painkillers (as if that makes their methods more humane?) to numb the prisoners prior to execution but chose not to do the same in this instant. They wanted Basim to suffer.
The Saudi Ministry of the Interior said in a statement that it believed the sentence was warranted due to the severity of the crime.
The beheading is part of an alarming trend, which has seen the kingdom execute seven people in the first two weeks of this year. In 2014 the number of executions rose to 87, from 78 in 2013…
Residents of Saudi Arabia such as Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim are forced to convert to Islam. Even worse, many are often accused, convicted and killed of crimes committed by their employers.
The rape of young children is not an unusual crime in Saudi Arabia where Muslim men are legally entitled to sodomize their own daughters, even as newborns. There is no crime in Islam for a man to rape, beat or murder his own wife or child. A man may murder his own young child should he suspect the child to not be a virgin. This sounds completely bizarre in the West. But incest is common in Islamic societies, so many young children may not actually be virgins which is revealed through medical exams.
This lenient law that permits incest, sodomy and murder changes if the accusation is made against a foreigner, a foreign worker, or an accusation against (generally) a poor person by a rich person. Then the strictest measure of Sharia law is applied. …
Compounding their never-ending acts of barbarism and cruelty, the incident has sparked outraged throughout Saudi Arabia but not because of the beheading of which the Saudis could care less. They are outraged that someone videotaped the execution and then posted it online.
Now Saudi authorities have arrested someone for filming the execution, local media reports. But it was not clear what crime he has been arrested for….
Many Twitter users protested the video being circulated on the internet because it could be seen by the woman’s family, but did not object to the beheading itself.
Bassim was one of 10 people beheaded In Saudi Arabia so far this year. Saudi Arabia executed 87 people last year, up from 78 in 2013….
There is not one Muslim or non-Muslim nation where one can find a Muslim within its borders that horrific acts against women and children are not committed.
The difference is that in non-Muslim nations, the acts are not being called out, as they should be.
