    Saudi culture is significantly different from multiple countries within the Muslim world such as Tunisia, Turkey, and Egypt (the last one being generally pretty conservative but less so than Saudi Arabia).

    I think using Saudi Arabia as a yardstick for what is or isn't Islamic is unwise and usually either a result of wanting to push a specific narrative or simply being uninformed.

    "There were 3,125 people on death row in the United States on January 1, 2013. Since 1977, the states of Texas (464), Virginia (108) and Oklahoma (94) have executed the most death row inmates."
    Death row - Wikipedia

    What have all of these people done to deserve sentencing with execution?

    BTW, the mail is also cited as an unreliable source, even Wikipedia won't accept citations to the mail. And Microsofts browser issues a warning not to trust is when you enter the site

    “The Iranian authorities have a horrific track record of putting juvenile offenders to death in flagrant violation of international law and their own human rights obligations,” said Saleh Higazi.
    Three people arrested as teenagers facing execution in Iran

    Why would a country violate international Law I wonder?

    1) Koran related?
    2) Islam related?
    3) Hadith related?
    4) Anger at other international countries
    5) ?

    Whatever the reason it shows contempt to the world

    Didn't Mail Online say what they've done? If not, clearly it isn't important.
