A 6-year-old boy in Saudi Arabia was beheaded with a piece of broken glass in front of his screaming mother, a campaign group has claimed.

The child, identified as Zakariya Bader al-Jabir, was brutally murdered by a man – described in some reports as a Taxi driver-  in front of his mother in the holy city of Medina. The killer repeatedly stabbed Zakariya in the neck with a piece of broken glass until he was beheaded, witness accounts of the gruesome killing said.

Reports show that the mom was asked if she was Shia just before Zakaria was executed.

The child and his mother were reportedly attacked by the apparently sole assailant while they were on their way to visit the shrine of Prophet Muhammad. Shia Rights Watch, a Washington-based advocacy group, said the incident was “a result of ongoing violations against and lack of protection of the Shia population by Saudi authorities.”

Although Saudi Arabia has been making a public relations push in recent years to make the Middle Eastern country appear more progressive, many actions and atrocities are still being committed against the innocent.

The boy’s mom and a police officer that happened to be nearby tried to stop the driver but they just weren’t able to. He was too strong and overpowered them.

Sajid Hussain seeks justice for her son. She has reached out on Twitter to let others know of her situation.

She even went as far as to describe her situation with the words “smallest coffins are the heaviest”.

Twitter users are backing her and feel that what she is going through isn’t ok.

The taxi driver’s identity is unknown even though the occurrence took place in the middle of the day. It’s unknown if he was even taken in for questioning.

Shia Rights Watch believe that the attack was a pure act of “sectarian violence.” The SRW stand together and support Sajid and her family as they mourn.

They have indicated this murder as a result of a violation and poor lack of protection by the authority towards the population that is made up of Shia practices.
