The saudi war on freethought

While Hamza Kashgari still languishes in custody not knowing whether Saudi authorities will take his head off. Yet another blogger faces one year in prison for his liberal blog in the conservative nation. Part of Raif Bedawi was to encourage religious discussion.

This is happening in a wave of crack downs where followers of Islam form a significant potion of the population with this last week seeing three Bangladeshi bloggers being arrest after a list 83 secular bloggers was given to authorities with demands to arrest those listed.

FFS, Freethought is not a crime. The more they squeeze, the weaker the grip. Arab spring means summer is coming.
