If You’re a Girl, Be Thankful You Don’t Live in Saudi Arabia. This 5 Year Old Wasn’t So Lucky.
A Saudi Arabian preacher named Fayhan al-Ghamdi committed an atrocity against his daughter that’s so disgusting, it’s hard to believe it actually happened.
The incident started because he was concerned that she wasn’t a virgin, but then he proceeded to do something so extreme that it ended in her death.
Lama al-Ghamdi is only five years-old. Her priest father brutally beat her with a cable, raped her repeatedly and then burned her wounds.
She was in the hospital for 10 months before finally succumbing to her terrible injuries.
Fayhan al-Ghamdi was sentenced only to eight years in jail and a lashing. He also paid Lama’s mother approximately $50,000 for the death of her daughter.
Her mother, Syeda Mohammed Ali, told CNN, “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.”
No mother should outlive her child, especially under these circumstances. Share this story – help raise awareness so Lama’s cruel father can be put back in jail for a lot longer.
