RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) Online activists in Saudi Arabia are calling for harsher punishments for child abuse after reports that a prominent cleric received only a light sentence after confessing to the beating death of his 5-year-old daughter. *** Saudi media reports say Fayhan al-Ghamdi, a frequent guest on Islamic TV programs, was arrested in November on charges of killing the girl. The reports said he questioned the child's virginity.
Saudi media say he was freed last week after serving a short prison term and agreeing to pay $50,000 in "blood money" to avoid a possible death sentence.
The money was presumably offered to the girl's mother or other relatives.

What kind of a twisted mind comes up with something like that?
Well, she hadn't reached the age of 9, the age of Moose-ham-mad's youngest bride, so he just wanted to know.
He raped her, he burned her anus shut, and he had her stoned to death.
His own 5 year old daughter.
Just another day in sharia land.
Frankly I’m amazed anyone in saudi is distressed enough to publicly say something.
‘Just another day for “moderate” pedophilia loving islamists. The only thing good enough for this pervert would be to whack of his penis.
That child was savagely murdered. The only way she escaped that hell hole was with her life. May this little girl rest in Peace in the Arms of Angels! May God have Mercy on this wicked earth...
Sodom was destroyed when Lot could not find ten good men in the whole city.
Today we know there are at least two (”on line activists”, plural) in all of the magic kingdom.
Perhaps He will spare islam?
I hope not.
So he has to pay one of his wives the cash? Is he going to beat her to death if she doesn't deposit it back into his account?
Perhaps his brother made frequent visits to his home and he knew his brother well?
i read several versions of this story but nobody had those details. Sickening. where did u find them?
Where do the anti-death penalty activists stand on this matter?
It's important for a father to know in Islam. The father approves the marriage. If the husband finds out the daughter is not a virgin on the wedding night, he probably will demand a refund of the bride-price (mahr). This is something for Muslim dads to avoid. Since a non-virgin daughter will not fetch a good bride-price, they are economically valueless and are often killed.
She could have been raped by a brother or cousin. Of course, in their sick view, that would have been her fault.
I wonder if any mullah has ever been executed for a crime? Adulterers, homosexuals and others who violate the Sharia code are executed but what happens when a muslim cleric commits a crime?
This was the love and understanding for her suffering she received at the hands of her father.
They're all animals.
I think they are just transferred to a new school.
No wait, that’s teachers...
There is an update on this case here. Shocking details. Very painful to read.
