It makes me feel the greatest degree of agony when I read some articles published by your esteemed newspaper Yemen Times talking about vendetta cases in Yemen.

We have recently seen an upsurge in vendetta and violence which is in flagrant violations for Islamic teachings.

These cases are ascribed to the rampant ignorance that controls the behavior of the Yemeni tribes and consequently leads to tragedies.

I hereby from this respectful pulpit call upon the concerned bodies to exert their utmost possible efforts to find an outlet solution for this problem which has become unbearable to hear, let alone to experience.

I am looking forward to see the day when Yemen becomes revenge free.
