Witnesses say the assailant, who has been described in some reports as a taxi driver belonging to Saudi Arabia’s dominant Wahhabi sect, repeatedly stabbed Zakariya in the neck with a piece of broken glass until he was beheaded.
The attack reportedly took place while the mother and son were on their way to visit the shrine of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) in Medina.
Wahhabism is a Takfiri ideology dominating Saudi Arabia and freely preached by the kingdom’s clerics.
The world’s notorious Takfiri terror outfits such as Daesh and a-Qaeda are widely believed to have been inspired by the radical ideology.
