Check-Out Punishment For Reading A Bible In Saudi Arabia 

Please when On A Visit to Saudi Arabia Do not Carry your Bibles! This is a new form of punishment in one of the Saudi nations. According to reports,
 
This is a new punishment used on people found in possession of a Bible [the image is an example of the damage]. The Iranian government announced new legal punishment tools under Sharia: an electronic saw is being used to cut off hands, fingers and feet.

And now shredders are implemented in some places for punishments.
Saudi Arabia has been short of head-choppers for their 2,500+ executions per year (PER executioner) and have been advertising to fill these dirty positions for quite sometime. An executioner is a job done by 'lower status' individual and is a position that is paid per execution by the government under confidentiality agreements. The government also provides the sword. The Saudi government has been considering firing squads to fill the shortage of executioners. Executioners have said they are "proud to do God's work". But is it a god or a man who sentence these people, without a fair trial, tortured into confessions?

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an Islamic theocratic monarchy in which Sunni Islam is the official state religion. Although no law requires citizens or passport holders to be Muslim, almost all citizens are Muslims. Children born to Muslim fathers are by law deemed Muslim, and conversion from Islam to another religion is considered apostasy and punishable by death. Blasphemy against Sunni Islam is also punishable by death, but the more common penalty is a long prison sentence. There have been no confirmed reports of executions for either apostasy or blasphemy in recent years.

Religious freedom is virtually non-existent. The Government does not provide legal recognition or protection for freedom of religion, and it is severely restricted in practice. As a matter of policy, the Government guarantees and protects the right to private worship for all, including non-Muslims who gather in homes for religious practice; however, this right is not always respected in practice and is not defined in law. Moreover, the public practice of non-Muslim religions is prohibited.
