She stressed that the application of the provisions of Islamic law is the way to reduce murders

Amman – the compass

The educational expert, Bushra Arabiyat, confirmed in her statements to “compass“There is no way to confront the societal violence that is prevalent these days and the accompanying suicides and traffic accidents caused by negligence and indifference, and the resulting killing and loss of life, except by the strict application of the law and the imposition of the most severe penalties on anyone who assaults the innocent human soul by killing.

Arabiyat said: Hardly a day goes by that we do not hear or read about a painful accident that claimed the lives of one or more people. My day, crimes were strange to society, but unfortunately I am afraid that we will get used to them as a result of their recurrence, because scenes of violence in general have become familiar because of their repetition in the news on different satellite channels, and therefore murders may become familiar, God forbid of course.

The educational expert asked: What are the reasons that drive a person to kill himself or a member of his family, or any other person with whom there is a rivalry? And who gave a person the right to end the life of any person in this life? It is necessary to analyze what is happening in detail, and it must be noted that the non-implementation of the death penalty contributed to an increase in the number of cases of violence leading to the loss of a person’s life. It is a great calamity for the husband to kill the wife or the children – or vice versa when the murderer is the mother. Why? Why has the state of society reached this degree of loss?

Mental disorders and educational qualification

She pointed out that there is no doubt that most of those who do these jobs are not educated, or perhaps one of them suffers from a disturbed psychological condition, which the parents hide when they want to ask for marriage from one of the families, and thus the family is established on the basis of fraud and deception, whether the young man or the girl is from He suffers from psychological disorders and abnormal behaviors, because our society has not yet risen to telling the truth, so the mother sees her son as ideal and she knows that in reality he is not fit to be a husband or a father. The brink of a cliff, which necessarily leads to the collapse of the family, even after a while, but the collapse of the family structure through separation is much easier than what happens from murders that cause shame, the murderer or the murdered of one of the parents, which results in children who are psychologically and socially abnormal, and this is contrary to the law of the Lord worlds when marriage was legalized.

Arabiyat: The scenes of violence presented by modern technology affect children and adults alike and exacerbate the problem

Arabiyat said: It gets worse when a woman kills her sister or her children. What kind of heart do you have to dare to do this? The same applies to someone who throws himself off a certain bridge, who gave him the authority to end his life? All the negative behaviors that happen are necessarily related to the method of education, yes education, because in front of schools we see fights between young students – from the age of ten years – and sometimes gangs of students are formed, and there is no one to deter these behaviors because what happens outside the walls of the school It is not the prerogative of teachers or the administration, and here I wonder if someone does not play his role less than two meters away from the school campus. If he does not want to intervene at the same time, let him play his role as an educator and teacher within the walls of the school, so that the volume of societal violence that arises with the child does not increase since The softness of his nails.

And she added, “It is also necessary to refer to the scenes of violence that young and old are exposed to through technology, and there is no one who follows or monitors the content they are exposed to, and here the concept of blind imitation emerges, which pushes those who follow scenes of crime and violence to apply what they follow without thinking.” Thus, the concept of societal violence comes to the fore strongly.

Arabiyat concluded her speech by saying: In conclusion, the law and the most severe penalties must be applied to anyone who kills an innocent person, and we must remember that one of the simplest human rights is the right to life, and that whoever takes away this right deserves execution, and that following Islamic law is the solution to reduce these crimes that occur. It became part of the daily news, like the weather forecast.
