“Saudi Arabian blogger jailed and tortured for writing about Human Rights” …. #FreeRaif …. it could be anyone of us!!
Nothing pains me more than an innocent person suffering intensely just for wanting to exercise his ‘Freedom Of Speech’ fundamental right.
The story hurts me more because this person in question is a ‘Human Rights and Social Change’ blogger just like myself.
Raif Badawi, a Saudi Arabian blogger, pictured above was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and 1,000 lashes by a Saudi Arabian court for allegedly ‘insulting Islam and undermining the State and the Judiciary.’
In the World today, we are used to seeing State manufactured, cooked up charges against individuals who the Government want silenced, just as we saw in the shabby trial and imprisonment of three Al Jazeera Journalists in Egypt.
What was Raif’s real offence?
He said things the Government of the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia would rather have unsaid, things they can not tolerate because they are ENEMIES OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
