Juhayman al- Otaibi attacked and seized Makkah for 2 weeks in 1979 and killed more than 100 innocent people. Now his son, Hathal bn Juhayman al Otaibi has been promoted to a colonel position in the Saudi army.
Security forces captured Juhayman al- Otaibi, along with several of his confederates, and paraded them in front of Saudi media before most of them were beheaded.
Juhayman al- Otaibi was arrested and accused of his deeds and on January 9, 1980, he was executed in the public.
Now the time has taken a new turn when Juhayman al- Otaibi’s son Hathal bn Juhayman al Otaibi dominated his father’s fundamental legacy and is recently honored and promoted to the position of Colonel in the Saudi Arabian National Guard.
The news of his promotion widely spread and the people of Saudi Arabia are sharing the news of his promotion saying that this is only possible in a moderate and just country.
Hathal bin Juhayman al Otaibi was just one year old at the time when his father attacked the Holy site. One of the Twitter users said that he had been the son of some other country and they had got rid of him.
