Saudi Arabia arrests its own citizen for abusing a non-Muslim Asian expatriate


Riyadh – Saudi authorities ordered the arrest of a citizen who abused a non-Muslim Asian expatriate worker, according to a Saudi Press Agency (SPA) report on Tuesday.

A video which went viral on the social media showed a non-Muslim expat being insulted by a Saudi national, for being a non-Muslim and not fasting in Ramadan. The pretext of snubbing the expat was to invite him to Islam.

However, the public prosecution expressed that such behavior is not entertained in the Kingdom.

“The public prosecution closely follows up whatever infringes rights of citizens and residents including harm to their dignity and legal rights regardless of pretexts of such infringement,” the source said.
