NEW YORK: A Saudi man has been jailed for 10 years and sentenced to 2,000 lashes for his atheist views.
Atheists are equated with terrorists under Saudi laws.
Saudi moral police in Riyadh said the 28-year-man made more than 600 tweets in which he denied the existence of God and expressed his views about verses in the Koran. The man reportedly also tweeted that all prophets lied to mankind.
He was sentenced by a Riyadh court which also fined him 20,000 riyals.
