Saudi sheikh imprisons & flogs women suffering from mental illness

An alarming video that went viral on social media shows how mentally ill people are being treated in Saudi Arabia by clerics.
The women are diagnosed as "possessed" and incarcerated and repeatedly punished in cruel ways.
In most Arab countries, modern treatments for mental illnesses are considered "haram".
Primitive treatment as you can see below is considered "normal" in most religious countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
The really worrying thing is that Saudi Arabia which legitimizes this torture is the head of the UN Human Rights Council.
A country that executes gays, rape victims, journalists and political prisoners holds a key role in the UN Council, which is responsible for protecting human rights.
