’Blood money’ may save 10 youths on death row in Dubai 

There is hope for 10 Punjabi youths on death row in Dubai for reportedly killing a Pakistani national in July 2015. The accused are likely to escape the gallows after the victim’s family is said to have agreed to accept blood money. 

In October last year, a court in Dubai had convicted them for the murder of Mohammad Faran, a resident of Peshawar.

Blood money (paid as compensation to the family of someone who has been killed) is permissible under Islamic law. A member of the victim’s family is expected to depose before a Dubai court on February 27 and make a statement. 

The fate of the youths, all in their 20s, will be decided a fortnight from now. 

Hotelier and NRI S P S Oberoi, chairman of NGO Sarbat Da Bhala Trust, intervened last year to save the lives of the youths by agreeing to pay 2 lakh UAE dirhams. 

Their death sentence was suspended in the wake of the likely settlement.

This is not the first time Oberoi has shelled out money to save people. 

The trust has so far helped as many as 17 youths from Punjab and Haryana by way of such monetary settlements.

The 10 youths are from poor backgrounds and worked as plumbers, masons and carpenters, among others. On the ill-fated day, they were having dinner in their room when a brawl broke out. Faran was killed in the dispute, which was reportedly over bootlegging.
