If you think the above-described crime by Fayhan al-Ghamdi, a “celebrity” preacher in Saudi Arabia, represents the bottom rung on the ladder of depravity, it is because you have not learned his sentence: He was ordered by a judge to pay £31,000 in compensation to the mother of the dead child. Case closed.
And if that’s enough to get the blood shooting out of your eyes, this should do the job: The amount under Islamic law is half what the assailant would have been required to pay if the child he murdered had been a boy!
The Independent notes that the little girl, named Lama, “suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken back, broken ribs, a broken left arm and extensive bruising and burns. Social workers say she had also been repeatedly raped and burnt.”
