Saudi teen Rahaf al-Qunun demands social disobedience in kingdom
Tehran (KNA) - Saudi teenager Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, who was granted asylum in Canada earlier this month, has called for social disobedience in the oil-rich conservative kingdom in the wake of a widening crackdown against Muslim preachers and intellectuals as well as flagrant violation of human rights there.
Qunun took to Twitter on Friday to demand such an action, Arabic-language New al-Khalij news website reported.
"When injustice becomes a law, resistance becomes a duty," she wrote.
The 18-year-old fled to Thailand while visiting Kuwait with her family in early January.
Her case grabbed international attention on social media after she barricaded herself in a Bangkok airport hotel room to resist being sent home to her family.
