A Saudi father (Awad Suleiman Al-Amrani) was widely praised on social media for his unique humanitarian gesture, as he pardoned his son’s killer just minutes before his execution in Tabuk, northern Saudi Arabia.

The killer was due to be executed on Monday after a final court ruling was issued against him, for the murder he committed during a brawl that happened about 4 years ago.

– The father did not demanded any compensation as blood money from his son killer’s family, but set a condition that neither killer nor his family should not celebrate the forgiveness, and family should not attempt to raise money from donors or attend any events that might be organized as a result of waiver.
