The Vice-President of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), Dr. Ahmad Al-Raysuni, slammed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman and described him as a “crazy thug” who ordered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to be “murdered”.

“When a crazy thug of a prince takes power and orders the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, then await the hour,” Al-Raysuni said in an article published online in reference to the Day of Judgement.

“When the son becomes king and the father becomes a slave, await the hour. When the father does not know anything about what is going on, and the son manages everything, then await the hour. When the senior leadership is led by a person whose most prominent qualities are ignorance, recklessness and incompetence, then await the hour,” Al-Raysuni added.

The senior Muslim scholar was commenting on the brutal murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi who was murdered and “dismembered” inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.
