Israa al-Ghomgham – Women Rights Activist – Ready To Be Executed by Saudi Arabia?



Will Israa al-Ghomgham, the Women Rights Activist of Saudi Arabia be sentenced to death? Exclusive reports suggest that Saudi Arabia may execute the first female activist for promoting dissent against the government regime, very soon. Israa al-Ghomgham has only found limited support from the minority Shia Muslim community.

Israa al-Ghomgham, the first women rights activists have been behind bars for 32 months. She belongs to the Qatif region in the oil-rich Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. She is facing charges of provoking anti-regime protests and inciting people to mobilise a movement against the regime.

She was presented before the Specialised Criminal Court in Riyadh. During the hearing, the public prosecutor urged the judge to reward a death sentence for six defendants. These six defendants also include Ghomgham’s husband Moussa al-Hashem.

Ghomgham started irking the government in 2011 when she launched protests in Qatif against the discrimination of Shia Muslims. He movement and protests were also aimed at demanding the release of political prisoners. The human rights groups and activists the female activist did not have enough money to represent herself in the court. Later a lawyer offered free legal services to the detained female activist after her father filed a petition for funds to provide legal aid for her daughter.

According to PressTV, many media outlets reported that Ghomgham had already been executed on the orders of the court. Videos went viral about the beheading of Ghomgham but later it was found that the video was from an earlier beheading.

If Saudi Arabia goes ahead with the execution, Riyadh will surely draw massive criticism from the international community and women rights activists all over the world. Even in the contemporary world, the conventional and orthodox Islamic nations have failed to evolve along with other parts of the world in terms of women emancipation.
