Some news are funny and sad at the same time. Recently King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia was awarded honorary doctorateof philosophy in Politics and International Studies by International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI).
As far as I remember King Abdullah is the king of the country with THE MOST human right violations!
He is the employer of the clerics who are known to be human right violation enablers, such as heikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah al-Sheikh, Nasser Al Omar, Oraifi and many more,
He is paying terrorist groups to bombard, slaughter, and rape in Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Egypt, Bahrain and even countries in South Asia!
And the list can go on and on……
Clearly the philosophy that King Abdullah acts upon is not the very peaceful one, yet he receives such award!
If such a king deserves honorary doctorate of philosophy, then what type of honorary degrees should peacekeepers of the world such as Gandhi, Mandela, Shirazi and others receive?
I think there are two scenarios here:
Either the king actually deserves the award,
The IIUI believes in the actions and philosophy of the king.
In the second scenario, this university is training and graduating very dangerous students who are taught to not just have act in violence but to believe in it.
No wonder every year thousands of Shia Muslims are killed in Pakistan. The university, which should be a heart of education, tolerance and respect to diversity, is honoring one of the most human rights violators of the world.
Based on this scenario, we should start awarding s to Hitler, Sadam Hussain, Bin laden and many others who made our world a very dangerous place to live in!!!!
Wake up people, Saudi money and oil should not have more value than human dignity and blood!!!!
