How did it happen? 

It was reported from Tabuk region in Saudi Arabia, a father entered with his newborn baby into Al-Muwailih School’s courtyard. He was carrying a blade in his hand.

People said that he laid down his son to slaughter him and screamed out that he will slaughter him because his inner voice was telling him to do.  The school staff and the students were horrified to see such a scene.

I feel sorry to call him a father. A father is a symbol of love and affection for the child. After mother, the father is the one who protects his child.
