Quote
In October 2018, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia began its prosecution of the prominent Islamic researcher, Sheikh Hassan al-Maliki, in the Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh, which was specially established in January 2009 to handle cases of terrorism and national security.

The official Saudi newspaper, Sabq, said on October 1, 2018, that the Specialized Criminal Court began ?the trial of a religious skeptic accused of defaming the Sunnah and the hadith of the Prophet,? in reference to al-Maliki, who has consistently put forth tolerant opinions at odds with the official religious establishment, which has adopted an extremist approach.

The public prosecution, which is directly linked to the Saudi king, has leveled charges almost entirely related to Maliki?s religious views and has requested that the court execute him as a form of ta?zir punishment based on selected religious texts and extremistinterpretations,with clear contempt for his inherent right to freedom of thought and conscience guaranteed by international law. Several hearings have been held for al-Maliki in the Specialized Criminal Court, and his next hearing, the fifth one approximately, is scheduled for April 29, 2019. Saudi Arabia arrested al-Maliki in September 2017; in addition to al-Maliki, there were a series of arrests in September of prominent religious scholars, some of whom face similar requests for the death sentence.

About a month after al-Maliki?s arrest, his son, al-Abbas, was known to have been arrested amid tweets addressing the circumstances of his father?s arrest. The arrest of al-Abbas al-Maliki came about in the context of inhumane punishments imposed against children and families of prisoners of conscience.

The ESOHR has been apprised of the list of the fourteen charges against al-Maliki, including among others:

Not believing in the validity of all the hadiths reported by al-Bukhari.
Criticizing the actions of some of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family.
Holding numerous television interviews with foreign newspapers and channels ?hostile?to the Kingdom (Al-Jazeera, Al-Alam).
Describing the official Council of Senior Scholars as extremist.
Writing many books and research papers and publishing them outside the Kingdom, despite knowing that he wasprohibited from doing so by the competent authorities.
Preparing, storing,or transmitting anything that would harm public order and religious values.
Possessing 348 books not authorized by the competent authority.
It seems clear from the charges against al-Maliki that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman?s claims, made in October 2017 in Riyadh, that Saudi Arabia is returning to the moderate and tolerant Islam of its past, open to the world and all religions, and that his country will not lose another 30 years dealing with extremist ideas, are just lies for the purpose of catering to the desires of Western countries. In addition to the case of al-Maliki, in its review of numeroustexts of judgments concerning 27 political prisoners, some of whom were executed, issued by the notorious Specialized Criminal Court, and a number of other ?lists of charges? issued by the public prosecutor concerning seven political detainees, the ESOHR has documented Saudi Arabia?s use of a radical approach to justify the execution and oppression of dissidents.

Despite Saudi Arabia?s poor record in the area of freedom of belief and its use of extremist ideology to eliminate domestic opponents, it has found itself obliged internationally to appear tolerant, contrary to reality, in order to mislead international public opinion. In 2012, Saudi Arabia established the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue in Vienna, Austria, which, according to its staff, seeks ?to promote dialogue and understanding among people of different faiths and cultures and to develop a culture of respect for diversity.?

On May 21, 2017, Saudi Arabia announced the establishment of the Global Center to Combat Extremism (Etidal), inaugurated by King Salman bin Abdulaziz in the presence of American president Donald Trump and Arab and Muslim leaders. Among the strategic objectives of the center are ?strengthening the intellectual aspect associated with countering and refuting the discourse of exclusion and spreading the concepts of moderation and acceptance of the other.? The center continuously announces visits of its members to international bodies and visits from international bodies and non-Saudi individuals in the context, as it says, of cooperating in spreadingglobal tolerance. Several days ago, on March 19, 2019, Etidal tweeted under the hashtag #NewZealand_terrorist_incident: ?The supreme message of religions is human triumph and the promotion of the values of coexistence, tolerance, and peace,? accompanied by three comments from leaders of different religions, including the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdulaziz Al-Sheikh, who said: ?The most dangerous ideas are those peddled in the name of religion.? Yet, inside Saudi Arabia, neither Etidal nor the Grand Mufti has commented on the religious charges leveled against Islamic researcher al-Maliki, who faces the death penalty, even though official newspapers have been covering his case for more than six months.

if God planned this way then nobody / ?WE? have power to change the plan of creator.

sometimes CRIMES of society bring a change we know as REVOLUTION

THINK about future revolution of FREE minds of Quran/bible/tora/veda make a movement in the name of GOD what every movement doing it from many centuries using name of God for their personal/professional/social matters.

KILLING of one rebel make more 50 people rebels becoz those fifty people loved his ideas. and this 50 will become 500 and so on. thats how NATURE play its part.

and one day we see FREE minds are in authority and we see them doing same things with people.

and also sometimes they do opposite what make people/nation a better society example of europe(wordly sense).

if they only understand the ATTACK of mongolians was a warning from nature but they didnt pay heed and now things are infront of us, so called choosen nation what actually they give to world ?

plane ? ship? machines?

not even they are capabale to make a pamper of KID ? still living in their fake pride

Sister reel dnt worry.

We all have blind spots.
Follow your heart but take your brain with you.
ambiguity is there for a reason, why do you think?
We're all different, so how can we all be equal?

Too bad there are not that mahy signatures in the change.org. form.

I pray that he may be spared all suffering and that he keeps a long time fighting for the cause of Truth, that name of God so little loved most of the time.

I also hope that Arabia gets out of its traps and does somethign significant for the common world. Al Maliki  is a proof that there are values in it that deserve supporting and respecting.

May God, protect al Malike and all of us.


Salaam 

good logic

Petition signed..

As I'm against all form of death penalty.
Especially when such penalty was applied towards an opinion that one has.

From Abraham time, to Jesus and John to nowadays nothing has much changed in the middle east.

One that can effectively bring changes are those who are living within the Saudi's empire itself.
But they are also subject to the same death penalty if they dare to speak up or rise against the regime.

As proven by many social experiment; when conscience is in conflict with fear from authority. Fear from authority won 99% of the time.
