Stop Stoning Children to Death

Target: Bandar Bin Mohammed Al-Aiban, Chairman of the Saudi Human Rights Commission

Goal: Repeal laws that allow for the brutal punishment and execution of minors.

Unjust and draconian laws in Saudi Arabia allow for the brutal killing of minors as young as 16. This inhumane justice system has been brought to light by a United Nations report, and the time has come to repeal these ghastly rules.

According to the U.N. Committee of the Rights of the Child, Saudi Arabia charges all children over 15 as adults, making them susceptible to flogging and execution by stoning. These harsh convictions are often doled out after brief and incomplete trials that, in the words of the committee, “[fall] short of guarantees of due process and a fair trial.”

Young girls are even more susceptible to injustice in the country. Under Saudi law, females are not considered full subjects and are denied many of the most basic human rights. Crimes against women are often ignored or given lenient sentences; a preacher found guilty of torturing, raping, and murdering his 5-year-old daughter had his charges reduced and was recently released from jail.

The execution of minors, whether by stoning or any other means, is unacceptable. Sign the petition below to demand an end to this barbaric practice.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Al-Aiban,

I am writing to express my disgust and outrage at your country’s policy of executing minors. Flogging and execution by stoning are barbaric and outdated practices that have no place in our modern world, yet Saudi Arabia consistently uses them to punish and even kill children as young as 16.

Worse still, these executions and punishments are often given arbitrarily, after a trial that fails to give the accused a proper chance of defending his or herself. I understand your dedication to practicing fundamental and traditional religious law, but I implore you to consider amending your laws. Please repeal these outdated and inhumane laws immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Okay U.N. get what in the world are you waiting for!?! This is all beyond disgusting… all these punishments against animals and humans alike, and you high and mighty selves just sit there like “The paper tiger” you are. Easy solution= stop trading foid for oil,& let them eat their oil, soon enough they’ll get the idea!

    • Bunch of primitive savages! Yet we in the West suck up to them because of their $$$$ and their precious oil! Stop all trade with these savages and let them go back to their stinking tents.

  2. Isn’t it about time the world made a stand against S Arabia? If every country threatened to stop buying its oil until it changed its ways, it will sit up and listen but not while the world is kow-towing to it.

    Thelse authorities need to be the ones to be STOPPED or FLOGGED NOT children!!!

  4. Tina shurtleff says:

    The United Nations are worthless if they do nothing. Boycott their products and find green energy alternatives so we can tell them to shove their oil.

    Maybe we should sell them hundreds of billions of dollars more weapons and keep allowing them to fund and arm terrorists… that’ll help with their horrible human rights abuses, right?

    As long as we keep rewarding them and turning a blind eye to this savagery, we have just as much blood on our hands.
