Tutor description

Over the past period, across many cultures and countries, death penalty has been seen as a way to fight crime, in not only as a form of deterrent but also punishment as well. Ideally, today the practice is practiced on the basis of modern philosophical arguments and the adherence to religious teachings such as in Saudi Arabia. It is worth noting, that however and in as much as this form of punishment may be practiced today, there is still more evident global resentment towards this form of punishment. Many arguments have been brought forward either to appraise or condemn it with most countries condemning the practice. In Saudi Arabia, death penalty is practiced under the Sharia law just like many other Islamic countries. It is based on a duly set process whereby the penalty is based on the crimes committed. However, these crimes that warrant the facing of a death penalty are treated differently across different countries.

This practice in Saudi Arabia has lead to massive international resentment and displeasure especially where foreigners face this
