Deera is the place where there is a huge gallery where they cut the heads of the people who have been found guilty which deserves capital punishment. Right next to this place is the high court. When the high court gives the final verdict, the guilty is executed in this gallery in full public view. The gallery is huge so that many people can see the event.
I am told by my friends that decisions are swift and perpetrators are eliminated swiftly. In my opinion, this is very essential part of Saudi Arabia as this keeps the essential component of fear in the citizen here so that they think many times before committing any crime. With so many posts I see from all my friends asking for capital punishment for the recent incidence in Delhi, I am even more convinced that such arrangement as I saw in Deera is very good.
My friend told me that one could see the events in Deera on Youtube. I will, of course, not see such video as then I will not be able to sleep for years.
By the way, Deera also has the Gold Market in Riyadh.
