Saudi Ariabin man jailed: Should there be a consequence for publicly expressing a want to end the guardianship of women in the Muslim kingdom?

Saudi Ariabin man jailed: Should there be a consequence for publicly expressing a want to end the guardianship of women in the Muslim kingdom?
  • Yes, I think so.

    Thousands of Saudis signed in September a petition urging an end to the guardianship system following a Twitter campaign which the court claims was launched by the defendant. Saudi Arabia has some of the world's tightest restrictions on women, and is the only country where they are not allowed to drive.

  • No, there should be no punishment for publicly supporting social issues.

    Despite the basis for the laws concerning the guardianship of women being based on religious practices, it is a social issue and one that is considered antiquated and oppressive by a large portion of the world. Punishing anyone who speaks out in support of ending such laws or against the oppression of any group of people should not be punishable unless those protesting are actually harming others, destroying property, etc.

  • No, there should not be consequences for speaking your mind.

    There should not be consequences for publicly expressing a want to end female guardianship in Saudi Arabia. First, female guardianship should end. Secondly, Saudi citizens should have the right to express their own views without fear of consequences. The Saudi kingdom needs to lighten up or it will face a major backlash someday.
