Famed Muslim Cleric who raped, beat his 5-year-old daughter to death, gets 8 years and 600 lashes


Under the sharia, the devout Muslim cleric was freed at first.

    Saudi Arabian preacher who beat his five-year-old daughter to death is jailed for just eight years and sentenced to 600 lashes Daily Mail

    Lama al-Ghamdi's back was broken and she had been raped and burned
    She died in October 2012 from her injuries after ten months in hospital
    Her father Fayhan, a prominent Islamist preacher, admitted beating her but was originally freed after agreeing to pay £31,000 compensation
    A campaign succeeded in bringing about a stiffer sentence

    A Saudi Islamic preacher accused of torturing his five-year-old daughter to death has been sentenced to just eight years in jail and 600 lashes.

    Lama al-Ghamdi died in October 2012 having suffered multiple injuries. Her skull was crushed, a finger nail had been pulled off, her ribs and arm broken and she suffered extensive bruising and burns.

    There were also reports that she’d been repeatedly raped, though this was denied by her mother.

    Lama spent ten months in hospital before succumbing to her injuries

       The case sent shockwaves around the world earlier this year and there was further outrage when it appeared that her father, Fayhan al-Ghamdi, would be released by a Saudi court after just a few months in prison.

    The mother, Syeda Mohammed Ali, told CNN in February: 'My dear child is dead, and all I want now is justice so I can close my eyes and know she didn't die in vain. She was brutally tortured in the most shocking ways.'

A campaign began to force the court, in the town of Hawta, to stiffen the sentence.

The same court and judge july re-examined the case, but there is anger once more that the punishment for Al-Ghamdi, a prominent Islamist preacher who regularly appears on television in Saudi Arabia, is too lenient.

Earlier this year activists from the group Women to Drive said the preacher had doubted Lama's virginity and had her checked up by a medic.

Saudi preacher Fayhan Ghamd was given a £31,000 fine despite admitting using a cable and a cane to beat his daughter

Randa al-Kaleeb, a social worker from the hospital where Lama was admitted, said the girl's back was broken and that she had been repeatedly raped.

The money is compensation for the next of kin under Islamic law.

Activists said the judge ruled the few months al-Ghamdi spent in prison since his arrest in November 2012 was sufficient punishment.

He has reportedly agreed to pay £31,000 ($50,000), which is believed to have gone to Lama's mother.

The amount is half that would have been paid if Lama had been a boy.

Manal al-Sharif launched a campaign on Twitter using the hashtag 'Ana Lama', which means ‘I am Lama’, calling for better protection for children and women.

At the very least they could have hacked off the hands that he used for his crime.

If he's the one who raped her, they could lop off another body part.
The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.

Dude?
Interesting choice of descriptor for a privileged desert rat animal who butt-diddled and beat his own little girl until she eventually died (after 10 months) from her injuries.

Having lived in the Arab world for a time, 600 lashes is fatal if applied "properly".
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Yeah, and even if he does survive he will probably get killed in prison.
