Saudi Tweet On Prophet To Be Deported Back

In yet another instance of fundamentalism and youth clashing, a Saudi man was found guilty of insulting the Prophet, flew to Malaysia where he was rearrested and is being flown back, despite his apology and his mother’s entreaties.


Can not people excuse a youth who seems to have done this in a moment of the aggressiveness of Youth?

Tweet On Prophet

Malaysia on Sunday deported the young Saudi journalist who is wanted in his home country over a Twitter post about the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) that sparked calls for his execution, an official said.

Hamza Kashgari, who was detained in Malaysia during the week after fleeing Saudi Arabia, left the country in the custody of Saudi officials, according to a Malaysian government official who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity.

Malaysia’s government would not immediately confirm Hamza’s deportation, but a Home Ministry statement Sunday said Kashgari would be sent back to Saudi Arabia.

“Malaysia has a long-standing arrangement by which individuals wanted by one country are extradited when detained by the other, and (Kashgari) will be repatriated under this arrangement,” the statement said.

“The nature of the charges against the individual in this case are a matter for the Saudi Arabian authorities.”

Mother appeals for mercy

The mother of a 23-year-old Saudi columnist accused of insulting Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) has made an impassionate appeal for authorities in the conservative Muslim Gulf Kingdom to pardon her son.

The appeal by Umm Hamza followed reports of her son’s arrest in Malaysia just after he fled the country and coincided with calls by Saudi Islamic fundamentalists to punish Hamza Kashgari in accordance with Islamic law, which involves death penalty for apostasy, newspapers in the Kingdom said.

  1. Anything good in monotheism, if such can be found, can be found elsewhere without all the damage. If I cried myself to sleep at night for the damage it has done, we’d have all drown by now.
