Newshub18 :A woman was sentenced to 34 years in prison for using Twitter… a surprise!.

Woman sentenced for ‘crime’ using Twitter The court of Saudi Arabia ordered the woman to be sentenced to 34 years in prison for using social media. International news agency AFP reported this news. The woman who was sentenced to 34 years in prison is Salma Al Shehab. He did his PhD from a British university. Salma also has 2 children. He has more than two and a half thousand followers on Twitter. She often spoke about women’s rights on that social media platform. The anger of the authorities fell on her when she spoke about women’s rights in a conservative Sunni Muslim society.

However, he came to Saudi Arabia on vacation in January 2021 to use Twitter as the university was closed. At that time Salma was arrested by the Saudi Arabian administration. In June that year, he was sentenced to 6 years in prison. But in August this year, the court of that country extended the term of that sentence. Salma will not be able to go abroad for 34 years after serving 34 years of imprisonment. This ban is part of the sentence.

The international community has already agreed with this punishment. A London-based human rights organization said in the wake of the verdict that it was the steepest punishment ever to be inflicted on a peaceful human rights activist. The organization called for an overhaul of both Saudi’s human rights and judicial system, calling the ruling ridiculous.

Recently, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has lifted the ban on girls driving. Disruptively changed the rules of wearing a scarf. But despite all this, this incident shows that the conservative mentality of Saudi Arabia has not changed
