From petition creator: The royal family of Saudi Arabia has intervened in the case of Ghamdi and will not be releasing him. They will do their utmost to ensure that this man is punished/confined. This marks the start of change. We will keep fighting until the backward, patriarchal laws of countries like Saudi Arabia are reformed.

We are outraged to hear that Islamic cleric sheikh Fayhan Al Ghamdi has been absolved and made to pay blood money for the unspeakable torture, rape and murder of his five year old daughter Lama. We demand justice for Lama and an end to the national laws that protect murderers rather than children. #AnaLama

Daily Mail-: Lama al-Ghamdi died in October having suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns. The child was also repeatedly raped and burnt.

The Commentator: Lama al-Ghamdi was the daughter of Fayhan al-Ghamdi, an Islamic preacher who makes regular appearances on television. Under Saudi law, al-Ghamdi has had to pay only £31,500 in 'blood money', even after confessing to the heinous crime.

He should face a painful castration and should be beheaded for brutally taking away the soul of that tender bud!!!!!!

      No human being can remain indifferent to such horror and lack of justice. The ideia is not to seek vengeance, but what child or woman can be safe in that country if such crimes are left unpunished?

      The brutalization, terror that this little girl experienced is unfathomable. Justice needs to happen and this female terror needs to stop.
