Saudi Arabia will sue any Twitter user who compares the Kingdom’s recent decision to execute a poet to punishments handed down by Isis.
Ashraf Fayadh, a 35-year-old Palestinian poet, was sentenced to death for apostasy – renouncing one’s faith – by a court in Abha on 17 November, according to documents seen by Human Rights Watch.
The sentence has provoked widespread condemnation, not only from international human rights organisations but also from legions of Twitter and other social media users.
"The justice ministry will sue the person who described ... the sentencing of a man to death for apostasy as being `Isis-like'," a justice ministry source told newspaper Al-Riyadh.
So I guess that if somebody were to tweet or blog this chart that would open them up to a potential lawsuit?
Here's an idea Saudi Arabia. If you don't like being compared to a terrorist organization that kills people indiscriminately, DON'T be just like a terrorist organization that kills people indiscriminately.
Just trying to help.
