A six-year-old boy was beheaded in front of his screaming mother in Saudi Arabia by a mad man because he was Shia Muslim.

Zakaria Al-Jaber was allegedly approached with his mother by an individaul while they visited a shrine to the Prophet Muhammad in Medina, Saudi Arabia, and asked if they were Shia Muslims.

After the mother said yes, according to reports, a taxi pulled up beside them and her son was snatched.

He was then beheaded with a “piece of glass”, according to the Daily Mail.

Speaking of the gruesome moment of the attack, a source said: “The taxi driver then broke a glass bottle to obtain a shard of glass, which he then used to cut the throat of the child and stab him”.

According to reports, the boy’s mother collapsed out of trauma.

The murdered boy’s photo has now emerged as campaigners react in fury to the news.

As a result, #JusticeforZakaria is growing on social media with many noting the smallest coffins are the heaviest.

Shia Rights Watch, a Washington DC-based campaign group, said: “There was no intervention from anyone and no response from authority thus far.”

The Saudi Shia community came together in mourning and to show solidarity with the parents.

The community also reported this incident is a result of ongoing violations and lack of protection by the Saudi authority toward its Shia population.

“Saudi Shia have been under a military crackdown by their government and many Shia are in prisons and on death toll.”
