Saudi Woman Killed For Chatting On Facebook

This is just unbelievable…

A young Saudi Arabian woman was murdered by her father for chatting on the social network site Facebook, it has emerged.

The unnamed woman from Riyadh was beaten and shot after she was discovered in the middle of an online conversation with a man, the al-Arabiya website reported.

Saudi preacher Ali al-Maliki has emerged as the leading critic of Facebook, claiming the network is corrupting the youth of the nation.

“Facebook is a door to lust and young women and men are spending more on their mobile phones and the Internet than they are spending on food,” he said.

All things put aside; I mean the father couldn’t just ask her to disconnect, sit down and talk to her about his concerns, why he disapproves of her talking to men online, and threaten to cancel their internet service if she didn’t show any cooperation.
He just had to beat her and then shoot her because of it; for nothing.

This is totally unacceptable; people like this should be prosecuted and thrown into jail for the rest of their lives, both for the crime they committed, as well as their unforgivable stupidity.

I can understand if some people have certain concerns about a certain service or another, but there are more civilized ways to deal with their concerns, both personally and as a community.
