Raif Badawi, a Saudi blogger, has been in jail for almost one year now for daring to ask questions. In July 2013 he was sentenced to seven years jail and 600 lashes. Now the Saudis want to drag him back to court to face charges of apostasy (changing one’s religious affiliation) which carries the death penalty in Saudi.
This exposes Saudi Arabia and Islam to ridicule yet again – and for good reason. Where are the human rights and rationality?
