Saudi Dad Beats & Shoots Daughter For Chatting on Facebook
A woman was beaten up and shot dead by her father for talking online with a man she met on the website Facebook.
The case was reported on a Saudi Arabian news site as an example of the “strife” the social networking site is causing in the Islamic nation.
It said the man shot his daugther after discovering she had been chatting online to a young man she had met on Facebook.
“Security sources assured Al-Arabiya.net that the father beat up his daughter and then shot her dead,” it said.
A leading Saudi preacher told Al-Arabiya.net that Facebook was a “door to lust” for women and called for it to be blocked to prevent social “strife”.
Sheikh Ali al-Maliki said women were posting “revealing pictures” and “behaving badly” on the site, which has become popular with young Saudis.
The preacher Ali al-Maliki reiterated the necessity to block Facebook in Saudi Arabia to prevent strife.
