He criticized the high-speed train project in Mecca and was detained: It was reported that two Sunni scholars, known as opponents, were also detained after the Shiite opposition Ayatollah Nemr was sentenced to death. The prominent Pastor Ureyfi was detained for criticizing his high-speed train project in Mecca. It has been 2 days since the innovative Sunni scholar Maliki was also detained for criticizing the Saudi administration's policy towards the Shia minority in the country's northeast.
In Saudi Arabia, the prominent Pastor Mohammed al-Ureyfi was detained for criticizing the high-speed train project in Mecca.
Salman al-Awde, the vice president of the World Association of Muslim Scholars, one of the prominent Saudi Arabian intellectuals and known as the pioneer of the "moderate Salafi school", said on his social networking website Twitter with the hashtag "Ureyfi behind bars", "May Allah save him, forgive his family, what happened He may reward him for reason. Praise be to Allah in every situation and situation ”.
On the other hand, "Freedom for Ureyfi" campaign was started by its readers and followers on social media.
In a statement he made on his Twitter account after completing his hajj worship, Ureyfi praised the work of Saudi authorities during the Hajj season, but criticized the train line running between Arafat, Müzdelife and Mina.
Local sources claim that Ureyfi was detained for "social messages" he gave in his sermons, beyond the justification alleged. Ureyfi is known in the world for his support to Syrian opponents.
While the Saudi authorities did not make any announcements about the news in question, it was stated that his family remained silent.
On the other hand, Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al Sheikh, the Chief Mufti of Saudi Arabia, in his Friday sermon on October 10, stated that some Twitter users "tried to reveal the negativities during the pilgrimage period" and criticized the opponents on this issue.

Maliki, who was not allowed to meet with his family, was detained on October 18. Like Ureyfi, a freedom campaign was launched for Maliki on social media.
Shiite cleric Ayatollah Nemr Bakir en-Nemr was previously sentenced to death after being accused of organizing opposition demonstrations in the country under the influence of the Arab Spring.
