Saudi Arabia Sentences A man To 10 Years In Jail And 2,000 Lashes For Being An Atheist

A COURT in Saudi Arabia has sentenced a man to ten years in prison and 2,000 lashes for expressing his atheism on Twitter.

The 28-year-old reportedly refused to repent, insisting what he wrote reflected his beliefs and that he had the right to express them.

The hardline Islamic state’s religious police in charge of monitoring social networks found more than 600 tweets denying the existence of God, ridiculing Koranic verses, accusing all prophets of lies and saying their teaching fuelled hostilities.

The court also fined him around £4,000.

He was sentenced under a controversial law that defines atheism as “terrorism”.

COMMENT FROM TRC: Our government tells us that these are our friends. The moderate Muslims who are dedicated to peace and love and want to live side by side with other beliefs. Clearly, that is a ridiculous assertion. Islam is a brutal religious, political, and social system that is wholly incomparable with western thought and philosophy. Refusal to acknowledge and accept this fact will inevitably lead to the fall of the west!
