Geography Go! Saudi Arabia (Al-ghat)

On the off chance you missed it, the United Nations has publicly criticised Saudi Arabia for its increased use of the death penalty. And Saudi Arabia, unsurprisingly, isn’t very impressed. After all, nobody likes to be publicly criticised. Even if they have executed 70 prisoners so far this year (for anybody reading this later down the line, it’s currently one and a half weeks into March).
So, much in the style of a Rupaul’s Drag Race contestant who’s been told off by Michelle Visage for a hurried tuck, Saudi Arabia has fought back.
(Seriously, imagine the following said in the voice of a reality TV star who feels totally misunderstood.)
‘Saudi Arabia is one of the very first countries which promoted human rights,’ explained Bandar al-Ali, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Culture and Information. ‘Such a support and a commitment to promote and protect human rights is but a duty imposed by the Islamic sharia from which the statutes of my country is derived. My country fights torture in all its physical and moral manifestations through strict legislation and executive measures that are applied on al. [Government procedures code] prohibits any physical or psychological harm to be inflicted on an arrested person.
