Saudi Interior Minister Ahmed bin Abdulaziz

Saudi Interior Minister Ahmed bin Abdulaziz

A Saudi activist has strongly criticized Interior Minister Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, saying the member of House of Saud is 'incompetent.' Reports say Mujtahid bin Hareth bin Hammaam, who is an active critic of the Al Saud royal family, recently posted messages on Twitter, bringing up the issue of ‘ministerial incompetence’ of Ahmed bin Abdulaziz. Mujtahid stated in his Tweets that most of the Saudi Interior Ministry’s affairs are handled by Deputy Interior Minister for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Nayef. The Twitter activist is known for exposing controversial information about the House of Saud. He also said on Twitter that the two Saudi officials are in a dispute over business and financial issues. Mujtahid’s Tweets come at a time when the Saudi regime has been witnessing demonstrations in Eastern Province since February 2011, primarily calling for the release of all political prisoners, freedom of expression and assembly, and an end to widespread discrimination. However, the demonstrations have turned into protests against the Al Saud regime, especially since November 2011, when security forces killed five protesters and injured many others in Eastern Province.
