The Saudi authorities continue to suppress them against anyone who opposes the kingdom’s policies or who objects to the activities of the entertainment authority. The most recent of these is the arrest of a citizen on the grounds of criticizing the dissolution of entertainment activities.
Yesterday, Tuesday, the Saudi authorities in Al-Qassim region arrested a female citizen accused of publishing a video that contained words and phrases that included insulting and defaming others.
And a video of a group of girls gathered in several recreational activities witnessed in the cities of the Kingdom in the past period, while a woman who addresses the Head of the Entertainment Authority, Turki Al Sheikh, is heard, and criticizes the entertainment activities organized by the Authority.
The woman says she is not against entertainment that supports the Kingdom’s economy, but she opposes activities such as the recruitment of pornographic singers and the erection of statues.
The Kingdom has witnessed, since the assumption of the “Muhammad bin Salman” mandate of the Covenant, social changes that some considered shocking to the society known for its reservations and an attempt by the Saudi regime to defame the Saudi society from its identity.
With the rise of the crown prince to power, the Kingdom started its way to break the traditions, such as allowing Saudi women to enter the stadiums, driving a car and motorcycle, as well as the emergence of dancing, mixing and strange scenes on Saudi society.
Activists attributed the sudden emergence of these scenes in the Kingdom and their wide spread to the absence of censorship and reducing the powers of the Commission to Promote Virtue and Prevent Vice, in exchange for expanding the powers and activities of the Entertainment Authority.
A series of steps imposed by Muhammad bin Salman constituted an outright coup against the kingdom’s values and its conservative character, which has been met with and still widespread criticism from citizens being faced with the suppression and arbitrary arrests.
Over the past months, the Saudi regime has worked to flood the kingdom with suspicious steps of entertainment since the establishment of a special body for that in 2016, which met with sharp criticism for its role in changing the religious and traditional character of the Kingdom.
Bin Salman is pushing a coup against the kingdom’s religious and moral heritage by opening up to entertainment and hosting foreign teams with astronomical sums of money to provide an image that covers regime violations internally and externally.
Moreover, Saud House are trying to achieve a set of goals with their suspicious practices, the most important of which is distraction of Saudi citizens from their oppressive regime and its crimes and collecting money from large financial returns for parties and events, including porn in the land of the Two Holy Places.
Last October, the Saudi regime launched widespread arbitrary arrest campaigns over the last days against the background of criticizing the activities of the government entertainment authority and the corruption it spreads in the Kingdom and a coup against its conservative values.
