Blogging in Saudia

According to Computerworld, the blog of Foad al-Farhan has been shut down, along with its author. Apparently, Foad criticized the Kingdom for religious extremism, which is strictly prohibited, and he is now residing in a Saudi gaol.

Foad said he was "Searching for freedom, dignity, justice, equality, Shura and all the remaining Islamic values which are missing…"

This is not a search that is encouraged or allowed in this part of the world.

Computerworld did not give the address of his Arabic site.
