Cleric Nimr Baqr al-Nimr, one of 47 people with Saudi authorities execute studied in both Tehran and Syria. Born in 1959, he was a figure revered by the Shia minority members in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, where he led the rally in 2011 and 2012.
The relationship between Sunni and Shia Muslims has deteriorated in many places due to the execution of a Shia cleric named Nimr al-Nimr Baqr in Saudi-Arabia. After a mob stormed into the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Tehran to protest, the country has severed diplomatic relations with Iran; Bahrain and Sudan cut relations also under, left the Saudi-Arabia (UAE) has downgraded diplomatic relations with that country.
For its part, Iran accuses Saudi-Arabia used the attack on the Embassy of the country to increase tensions already rising factions before the executions. That man has been executed?
The position of this clergy has been described by supporters as a man of peace but pay a terrible price for standing up against the monarchy of Sunnis. But he is little known outside his home. Western embassies, though generally condemned the brutal detention and executions, he also sometimes does not know for sure whether he is a supporter of human rights or is a supporter of the regime ruled Iranian-style theocratic.
Mr. al-Nimr, one of 47 people with Saudi authorities execute statement last weekend, was schooled in both Tehran and Syria. Born in 1959, he was a figure revered by the Shia minority members in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, where he led the rally in 2011 and 2012.
He also cherished by the Shia discontent but are a majority in Bahrain. But his supporters argue that he never advocated violence. During the rally, he called for people to stand up against the police by boos of protest.
In July 2012, he was shot and wounded by police and arrested. Two years later, he was sentenced to death for a series of charges, including whether he is said to encourage “foreign intervention” in Saudi-Arabia.
The Saudi Government seemed particularly incensed by the claims that he was to be launched in 2009, that the eastern part of the United Kingdom may be right to secede if Shia was not treated better. In the eyes of the Saudi Government, that is the equivalent of encouraging Iran to expand influence.
According to a diplomatic telegram that Wikileaks published, he has tried to gradually abandon the stance advocated by Iran and anti-American. In a telegram in 2008, he was quoted as having assured a diplomat that he believed in the “American ideal” such as freedom and justice.
What he advocates is only one version is adjusted by the Iranian theocratic system, which combines a unique spiritual Catholic with a collective leadership. But the taste of this clergy has to “continue to fight for the rights of Shia in Saudi-Arabia in seeking help from outside if they became embroiled in a conflict”. For the Saudi leadership are worried, comments that only the equivalent of treason.
