The cleric’s name was among a list of the 47 carried by the state-run Saudi Press Agency. It cited the Interior Ministry for the information. Saudi state television also reported the executions.

Al-Nimr was a central figure in Shiite protests that erupted in 2011 as part of the Arab Spring, and carrying out his execution may spark new unrest among the OPEC powerhouse’s Shiite minority.

      Shaikh Mohd. Rizwan will disagree with your comments. For him, Saudi Arabia is a very peaceful country and Saudis are a well-behaved lot. They are not paedophiles, rapists, drunkards and highly arrogant and lazy race, but well behaved and gentle people.

      He has had the temerity to accuse me of being anti-Muslim.

  1. After getting rid of all non-muslim minorities from society, now they are getting rid of their own people!! Very peaceful and tolerant society!!

  2. Great Job Done, if involment of these People were Found, Hope the Indian Govt also Follows Suit when required. Great Job Again ….
