After 2+ years of imprisonment and torture, Saudi Arabia executed top Shi'a cleric Sheikh Nimr in Saudi Arabia. Sheikh Nimr was executed simply because he spoke out. He spoke for the freedom of the minorities in Saudi Arabia and denounced the oppression and human rights violations against them. He was for democracy and peace, exactly what Al-Saud is against. If democracy was to be established in Saudi Arabia, it would automatically overthrow the oppressive regime they have; hence they felt threatened by him. We are all aware that Saudi Arabia is the face behind all global terrorism as well as the funding of terrorist groups like ISIS or Al-Qaeda.
Sheikh Nimr was brave enough to vocally stand against one of the most authoritarian states on the planet, not only that, but also put aside all ascribed tensions and rivalries between sects. He stood against violence, preached peace, equality and human dignity. He opposed oppression even from his own sect. Out loud. He broke through stereotypes and myths that have been hindrances between Sunnis and Shias for centuries, a lived reality for so many. He was a noble soul, in a disgusting, backward, tribal, lunatic, and monstrous region.
We urge Amnesty International and other Human Rights Organizations to take strict action against the execution of Ayatullah Nimr Baqir al-Nimr along with 47 other individuals.
The least we can do is take two minutes and sign this petition to raise our voices against the oppressive regime of Al-Saud and anywhere else there is oppression
We urge Human Rights organizations worldwide (such as Amnesty International) and prominent political figures (U.S President, Prime Minister of Canada) to condemn this heinous act of brutatlity by the Saudi Regime.
The execution of Sheikh Nimr (for demanding democracy,human rights and opposing terrorism) is indicative of the lengths a corrupt, unjust and wholly destructive empire will go to silence any kind of call for justice or responsibility. Sheikh Nimr was killed today at the hands of a nation that thrives on international terrorism and the persecution of Shias and minority sect Muslims across the globe. Today is marked as the moment a kingdom renowned for exporting mass murder committed an act of terrorism on its own soil and to one of its own citizens.
