Saudi Arabia, where the entire power rests in the hands of a 32-year crown Prince and Quoran is considered as the constitution, is simply eliminating out all the writers, bloggers, editors who speak or write anything against the Government of the country.
Jamal Khashoggi, a well-known journalist, took his last breath on 2nd October 2018, at the premises of the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul. The journalist had left the country in 2017. He was banned from Twitter for opposing the government’s rule. He continues writing about the political systems and how his other friends who are also editors, journalists etc. are being imprisoned for the sake of being a journalist and writing what they are expected to. Being an author, and a former general manager and editor-in-chief of Al-Arab News Channel, he is a well-known personality in Saudi and as well as in the West. Because of his good English proficiency, Jamal was eligible enough to bring this matter in front of the media. Because it is not just Khashoggi, but a dozen more in the list! He also served as editor for the Saudi Arabian newspaper Al Watan.
