It is illegal to be an atheist in the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia, such thought is un-Islamic.
But what does that really entail?
Atheist thought in any form is now illegal as is calling into question the fundamentals of Islam and by extension Wahabbism that is so intrinsic to Saudi. It is illegal to question the laws and rulers and be disloyal to them. Anyone who aids organisations, groups, thought associations, parties that promote these. It is also illegal to promote, hold meetings with them either inside or outside the kingdom.
Anyone who seeks to shake the foundation and social fabric or the national cohesion or the unity or stability of Saudi Arabia. Anyone who attends conferences, seminars or meetings that target the security or sow discord within society.
Anyone who makes countries, committees or organisations antagonistic to the Kingdom.
1. I don’t believe in Islam and so do many of Saudi’s residents since Saudi runs on immigrant workforces and many of those are Christian and Hindu. They are atheists by omission of the “one true god of Islam and his prophet”.
2. Wahabbism’s ideas are toxic fundamentalism and the death and murder of dissidents are is its method of solving diversity of opinion. It is a vile ethos of toxic ideas and bigotry entrenched in religious fundamentalism that lets men do horrific things by pretending to be moral.
3. Welcome to A Million Gods, an organisation that aids atheism
4. I want the people of Saudi to be free to read the books they want, eat the food they want and to believe what they want without fear of being killed by fundamentalist Muslims. I want the men and women of Saudi Arabia to be equal and women to be agents in Saudi Arabia. This makes me someone who wishes to shake the social fabric and destroy the current national cohesiveness of Saudi.
5. I was a member of Amnesty International growing up. I have been to Deera Square and I think that such barbarism is unbecoming of any civil and humane society particularly in light of the Kingdom of Saudi’s laughable judicial system.
And i think that covers the last point too.
And by association with me? All of you are guilty of it. The draconian rules of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have made any dissent a crime.
And this law in reality is a stick. A weapon to allow anyone to be jailed. Let us look at it critically.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is powered by immigrants who are often Hindu or Christian and so “atheist” by the standards of Islam since they don’t believe in the “real” god.
And anyone who believes in anything vaguely moderate. By definition everyone is guilty since simply saying “I want people to get a fair trial” is sufficient to break the law.
Now the KSA cannot run around jailing it’s work force. Nor can it really target westerners who bring negative press and reduced investment with the media circuses. This is a law designed to oppress both it’s non-skilled labour forces who are often jailed on laughable charges and EVEN executed and the average citizens particularly from the dwindling intellectual and middle classes who are more likely to oppose the stances of a fundamentalist government and the Mutaween police who help enforce these laws.
Thank you for reading, you are now guilty by association!
