A Saudi family has given up its right to retribution against an Indian man who murdered their son during a dispute that erupted between them.
Emir of Najran, Prince Jalawi Bin Abdulaziz Bin Musaed, blessed the move as he received the Lobeid family – whose son Saleh was murdered by the Indian man.
The emir received the Lobeid family at his diwan on Monday. Jaber Hassan Abu Saq, the chairman of the executive committee for reform and amnesty in Najran, also attended the meeting.
Prince Jalawi said the Lobeid’s announcement giving up retribution without considering race or nationality “embodies the characteristics of the generous Saudi society which represents the morals of the honest Arab Muslims – morals which the Prophet, peace be upon him, had called for.”
The Lobeid family also voiced content with their decision.
