Eight Bangladeshis hanged till death in public without having their guilt proved…Amnesty declares the way of punishment as ‘barbarian’
- Till now, they used to kill non-Muslims, but now they are up against their own caste – a thinking like this may arise in people’s minds all over the world, i.e. grow/extend their antipathy about Muslims all over the world.
The Saudi government has recently passed a verdict a propos eight Bangladeshi immigrants being hanged till death. The decree has been carried out after Friday’s prayer (special day of the week for Muslims) in the capital city of Saudi Arabia – Riyadh, convening everyone as if some kind of sale had been then erected in the market. The punishment has been declared on the basis of allege on the eight Bangladeshis of killing an Egyptian in 2007. An organization concerning human rights, Amnesty International, has illustrated great gripe over this matter, calling it a ‘barbarian’ penalty. Saudi Arab’s ‘verdict-claiming dexterity’ is not one of the standard ones. Moreover, the Bangladeshis did not have the chance to prove their innocence, as they could not speak the Arabian language properly. Knowing it, the Arabian government did not let them choose a lawyer who could interpret their language into that of the Arab’s.
The development secretary of Bangladesh, Dr. Jafor Ahmad Khan said the Bangladeshi government had left no stone unturned when requesting excuse for those eight Bangladeshi immigrants. When that failed, the president himself requested to the Arabian government to refurbish the case, looking at it more closely, or in an indirect way, on the suspected ones’ side. But like always, with an antagonism about crime, the government hanged them like animals ready to be forfeited, in front of all the people that came to pray that day.
According to the international human rights organization, Amnesty, the report goes as follows:
In 2007, when the eight Bangladeshis were working in an electric hardware shop, a few Saudi thieves had tried to lift a wire, and when getting caught, in the brawl between the Bangladeshis and the Saudis, the security guard of that shop, an Egyptian, got killed.
A report in the amnesty website also said: “Out of the people who were punished, none of them had any relations with the government or the ruling family of Saudi Arabia, so none of them could do any less than getting their heads slaughtered in public. A lot of criminals in the country can be released by having them spit their crimes out”
The Arabian home ministry, amnesty international, Roiters and a few independent presses exposed the names of the criminals punished: Mamun Mia (27) from Tangail District, Masud (21) of Kalihati district, Shumon Mia (20) of Delduar district, Faruk (25) of Sakhipur district, Motiur Rahman (25) of Faridpur district, and Abul Husain, also from the Faridpur district.
As we can see, all of the people punished here are Muslims, or follow the religion same as that of the people of Saudi Arab, but still, they weren’t pitied.
So, when did this hanging-people-in-public as a punishment expression add up in the Arabian constitution?
When Muhammad (SA), the last prophet of the Muslims passed away, the only man living to rule the holy land of Saudi Arab was Hazrat Ali (SA), the second prophet to possess miraculous powers after Hazrat Muhammad (SA), who was fine and just in his ways. After that, all of the leaders that ruled Arabia were mainly political and the verdicts they passed were not from God, or Allah, as Muslims call Him. They used to carry whip-belts and were very harsh in their ruling ways. After World War I and during the crusades, when the Muslims learnt of killing one people for a kill that he committed from the British and a lot of other European countries, it brought in the method of hanging people in public as a punishment to its constitution.
This will surely affect the 250000 Bangladeshi immigrants living in Saudi Arabia, loosen the relationship between Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh, and also create an antipathy about the religion in people’s minds all over the world. Saudi Arabia should remove this kind of punishment as a whole, and make their verdict-claim of a better standard. Most importantly, it should teach its people to speak English, or add English as its secondary language, so that people can communicate and prove their innocence.
On the other side of the coin, Pakistan tries to bond with Bangladesh, but Bangladesh refuses their offer. Read my next article for more.
