Saudi and Egyptian executioners discuss their jobs and taking their sons to work. One son told his class about watching his dad chop off a thief’s hand for which the teacher thanked him. Didn’t say whether he brought anything with him for show and tell however.
Apparently, this was seen as a way to discourage children from stealing. I wonder what lesson they get out of watching a woman get beheaded for talking to man who wasn’t her husband or a family member?
