A few days ago, there was a Saudi wedding taking place at Abha, the city of Saudi Arabia. Abha is the capital of province “Asir”. It is situated around 2,200 meters above sea level. The whole sketch of the dreadful wedding was reported in Saudi daily newspaper called Okaz. The wedding was going on as usual and in a traditional way at a place called Khamis Mushayt. Unfortunately, there was a public dispute that eventually broke out and spoiled the whole wedding joy. Because of this public feud in wedding, one Saudi man was dead and one was seriously injured. The whole accident was actually a question mark on the aggressive behavior of young generation, which is increasing rapidly in our society day by day.
The police spokesman of province Asir, Capt. Zaid Al-Qahtani reported the whole story that a group of youngsters started playing traditional folklore music in loud volume and was also performing their traditional dance called as Al-Quzoui. One of the people from the guests invited to wedding got up and went straight to the crowd of young men and told them gently to switch off the music as it was a source of disturbance in the wedding ceremony. As one young man from the group did not feel good with the person’s suggestion, he became annoyed and got much angry.
He immediately went mad and showed his aggressive behavior by taking out a dagger from one of the guests present at the wedding. The young guy stabbed the man multiple times with the dagger. The son, who was trying to protect his father, also became a victim and got stabbed several times as well. The Police officers reached the scene and arrested the murderer and the case was passed to the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution. Other young men from the group were under the police custody for further investigations.[irp]
