Iranian lawmakers have slammed human rights organizations and bodies for pursuing double standard policies on Saudi Arabia’s atrocities.

In a statement issued on Tuesday on the first anniversary of Saudi Arabia’s execution of prominent Shia cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, 191 Iranian legislators said human rights bodies must stop double standard and contradictory policies on inhuman crimes committed by Saudi Arabia and fulfill their legal duties.

The statement described Sheikh Nimr’s execution as an “inhumane act that runs counter to international principles.”

At a time when extremist and Takfiri terrorists have shattered regional and international peace and security and threatened stability and tranquility in the region, Sheikh Nimr’s execution showed the “depth of imprudence and irresponsibility of Saudi rulers,” it added.

The Iranian lawmakers also said Saudi Arabia is pursuing a destructive policy regarding regional stability and taking steps in line with fueling rifts in the region through its overt and covert support for terrorism, aggression against Yemen and the killing of its innocent nation as well as the suppression of the citizens of other countries.
