4:21 am
prince that's in talk to al-jazeera coming up next hour see you after that with more news by phone or. you're looking at the. saudi crown prince mohammed bin sandman arriving at the g. 20 summit and osaka a symbolic scene suggesting his acceptance as a leader if not endorsement of his policies underneath the surface unresolved human rights violations including the brutal murder of the saudi journalist. the persecution of female activists and clerics advocating reforms and now another name
4:22 am
is gaining prominence inside and outside of saudi arabia his name is 7 man allowed a renowned religious leader who is now in jail after political disagreements with the saudi regime he's now unable to speak to the press but this week on talk to al jazeera we sit down with his son and. a young dissident currently living in the u.s. to discuss been said man. and the fate of his father. but on the level of the thank you very much for talking to all does iraq thank you for having me i will start by asking you about the situation in saudi arabia now it's been almost 2 years since. conference harben some money ascended to power many consider him to be the de facto ruler of saudi arabia a lot of people in the west have pinned so much hope on this young reformist prince and his bold agenda as they described it to us have gone by what has changed in
4:23 am
saudi arabia the promise was to. to form the social fabric in saudi arabia was to diversify this it would economy and to promote moderate islam what has been done is actually the opposite of both of these. 3 different aspects socially and the promise to reform was delivered through attack in the feminists the woman humorist defenders in saudi arabia well how can you say that if markets are mandelbrot by a modern woman to drive that's that's an achievement that we hoth to respect and we have i have myself a like that. moved but at the same time if you look at the fuller picture what are
4:24 am
the real deal forms what he wanted is to take credit for the call that that that demands. you know the state to allow women to drive for the past few decades so what he wanted was that to make a p.r. campaign to take credit for these demands and now want these campaigners these human rights defenders in saudi arabia to again to surface and talk about other issues and other human rights issues so he did make 2 targets in this crackdown one he targets those who could pose a threat and asked for for more human rights and in the same time that will allow him to take credit and to try to convince the west that he was the one who was
4:25 am
behind the allowing one to drive and allow and a long moment to have some sober fishel reforms that we are having in the kingdom the the. the main issue the male guardianship system is not just still there it's actually be in more and more. a fact of in dealing with the with the subjects just like you have for example in the united states now so for the 1st time as a female. that's true but look at this female embassador and what has been done. at the same time in saudi arabia like. jane. their names languish in jail because of the same oath of asking so arabia to adopt such a form to adopt a female ambassador to have. like it to empower women in politics so mama been some how popular is he in saudi arabia well the thing is that in so that maybe you are
4:26 am
will never have. public poll that really can tell you the real you know. the real saudi opinion and impression of the state and its leaders but if you want to have at least a real impression of how this city public feel about the state you should look at the different various segments of soda society look at for example the liberals the famine is the shia the sunni the islamists the different the women men you will find i mean the leaders of all these sigmas of saudi society or have been either put in jail silenced intimidated or threatened in one way or another in the tribal leaders in serbia the even his own family the religious institutions how to be a has forever been criticized for being an extreme 11 that has given birth to. what
4:27 am
so many would consider to be terrorist movements and organizations my. promised to counter that. have seen many religious figures in prison do you think but yours being successful and not amongst those prism are your father ships among although one of the most prominent religious figures well what he has done in the past 2 years one here half is that he attacked the moderate voices of the condemn the voices that. spearheaded the campaign against extremism terrorism in the kingdom even the states the state need needed them to terrorism after 2001 and in the when and during the terrorism and terrorist attacks in 20046 and after in saudi arabia
4:28 am
so but why the state targeted them is is because the state fear what they have in their package the democrates discourse one of the same time the state that the m.b.a.'s that promised to curtail their religious establishment the tried to curtail these moderate voices one of the same time in power and the state sponsored threats was this state sponsored council which is the council of senior scholars in syria that council is still issue in fact were regularly that council is a still sponsored by the state paid by the state government give me an example of what's wrong with this council or take the example of a slight head was on is a very powerful person within that council member of this yes he is an influential member actually of that council he is very close to him b.s.
4:29 am
india's fiza to 10 late last year and it is told him literally that he is like his . father so m.b.'s implied that while his father the king is the head of the political or political power in saudi arabia is the head of the religious power in syria so that alliance is still a factor and who. and if you want to know who is not of his own is look at his head was it was and is the one who gave the threat was like one month just before the killing of. not just along the street to kill dissidents but urge in this state to call dissidents under the. and wahhabi docs and. those who disagree with the state are rebelling against religion against god and against the state of them should be charged with treason is what you took with treasonous and also be executed. because of.
4:30 am
his strong here's somebody who was significant religious figure that was still. in his position and has influence but on 100 not the same time you have somebody like just a moment older who is in general. for you as an example of an example of the fake campaign against extremism he has been targeting the motor voices and tried to sell that to the west like if he is content with he took advantage of a lot of people in the west not knowing the dynamics of the saudi society and that in a makes the dynamics within the religious you know figures and try to sell that like if he is counting on the rich supplement what in fact he is coattail in the moderate voices that could ask for more you know democracy demands and half of india a package of the democratic discourse by the same to empower those extremists who
4:31 am
are in return legitimize his own influence his own group. tom you're bitter about your father should somebody who has millions of followers online on twitter who somebody who traveled the muslim world i mean from many other countries with significant muslim populations given lectures and preaching and so forth why do you believe he was prism tell me a bit about some m.p.'s has been always obsessed with attacking those who have more popularity to and his and his father like for my father my father for example has 14000000 followers on twitter it's like double than what the king came self harmers on twitter so that that signals one thing popularity 2nd my father has with also the state lacks which is both while my father has their religious authority in his you know teaching and all that he also has the
4:32 am
democratic he promotes the democratic discourse he asks the state. for example in 2011 he promoted and presented one of them it's actually the the most popular bit titian in saudi history which is the petition called toward. toward a state of institutions and rights in saudi arabia asking the state to transform into a constitutional monarchy where the minorities are protected women are empowered where. the people are represented in an elected parliament in saudi arabia where the rights are guaranteed so these elements through the religious democrats exactly and that's why they fear him the most they feared this discourse because it is acceptable by the locals it's very popular
4:33 am
a locally and it's very acceptable internationally and by but by even the large majority of. the the royal family itself so that's why his present moment order was given platforms on streets rum television or media outlets or those close to it how has saudi media on both supporting carbon some been able to. between being my goal from shining a light on him as an example of progressiveness true suddenly trying to convince the people that here's a foreign agent or treater and somebody who wants harm to the kingdom and to his country that just. proves the book of of their discourse take the example of this already in bassett or the current saudi ambassador to the kid who. who has written his master's dissertation on my father he studied my father and he title of his
4:34 am
published book later was son man a man in order from prison to enlightenment and he presented my father as an i can . lighten it in so arabia and in the arab world and he is now i mean he is part of how the state really thinks about my father that he is an icon of light a mint. of moderate islam but also why the state fused him the most because of that light and because of that moderate islam so that's another issue of why this is doing his a moderate islam campaign because those people like my father were really expose his his discourse tell me what happened to your father how was your. after after the the rift between. qatar and saudi arabia in 2017 my father
4:35 am
tweeted that. male law harmonized between the hearts of the leader for the past of their peoples. he did not mention names on it did not mention even lake country the country was just calling for unity exactly so few hours after that tweet. states forces from state security showed up at the house they did not they refused to present any badges or any legal documents without any legal proceeding the search the house the took my father away and they said to my brothers that it's going to be just a few hours and he will be back safe and sound but what happened was was not that he was held incommunicado for 6 months we heard about.
4:36 am
drones without being able to see him in a legal room without any legal proceeding whatsoever were you able to speak german law 6 months no i was never able to speak to him even until now. so when after that after the 6 but the 1st 6 months we i mean there was a leak about his hospitalization in prison we tried to ask we tried nobody responded to that so we told the new i told the news and it went really viral at that time so they after that they allowed some some family visits and during the found visits we knew the horrible treatment that he faced during his imprisonment and just really just remember my father is the most popular figure in the kingdom and he was treated. like that so just imagine those who are less
4:37 am
known or even not known to the public or to the international media what would they do how would. they. people saw in those 6 months that he was held incommunicado in the following months muhammad and some man was welcomed in washington and london and paris and other places. how do you think about what message does that send to the saudi government on one hand but they can continue doing this and get international agreement but also does it is it encouraging to those who are calling for freedom and reform in saudi arabia that while they're getting tortured or they're icons are in jail those who are essentially oppressing them are being celebrated it's actually very hurtful yeah it's very hurtful for a lot of people to see i mean the international media are one till the moment of killed in. was trying to to promote and
4:38 am
to. to to to portray the card prince as the one who pushed for the forms coattails deal is just helplessness and. promotes the moderate islam and the whole wall diversified this whole economy they ignored and neglected the human rights the neglected how the internal dynamics. looked like they needed like a very long time to realize and even know there are some media campaigns that really still buy the the reformer kind of campaign and p.r. we speak of democracy you knew. what do you think.
4:39 am
his death has done to shine a light on the. human rights violations. crimes that are taking place in saudi arabia well the hustle she kill in was horrible but but it was a wake up call for the saudi public. which they care about more than anything and for the set for the international media for the international community the the case of she. is actually in her busy additive of the human rights cases in saudi arabia those who killed jamal and the saudi consulate in istanbul are still treating the voices that have similar concerns. and those who have a similar discourse of. law so i mean the same mines
4:40 am
that treated with with the with the productivity with girls some killing are still tortured and women humorous defenders feminists humorous offending the moderate muslims and the the economists in saudi arabia they those who. are in the art are treated in the prisoners in jail after you know one you have of to the murder of 2 months to your hard president trumps a. really hardcore flights billions of dollars worth of deals for the life of one person who wasn't even an american as you had sort of right and this is what it comes down to really you can talk about i mean you are somebody who and i want to get into a bit about your your own history and what you're looking to do now you can talk
4:41 am
about human rights and you can aspire to have some countries are docked your campaign. some of your calls but in reality it's about money and it's about. political influence not if they are well if they want to think lake realistically and think who they want to have a real alliance with so arabia dish should not put the eggs in the basket of m.b.'s for one thing and b.s. is not so rabiah and b.s. is not the history of sarabia m.b.'s is not his own boil family and base is not this a republic so if you want to really. establish a real alliance with said rabia if you want to make sure that you have a stable relationship if you want to have a long term alliance you have to establish that with the with the saudi public will be there for ever with the saudi institutions with the even
4:42 am
this would be a royal family who at one point they agreed. to transform into a constitutional monarchy so that's why m.b.a.'s came to power to kill that call to kill that coast and to just support aboard the demands toward more liberties and and freedom is saudi arabia we've seen dissidents like john hustle she has happened to them are either killed or some have been essentially rendition forcibly kidnapped from countries and back to saudi arabia you are now not only a significant figure because of your father maybe being a voice for him whilst he's being silent but also because of your history of writing and how the media quoting for reforms or what is your message are you not worried and concerned for your own safety. there are there is always
4:43 am
a concern but the the. i mean what the larger fear is not for myself but for the future for my society's future i mean into have basic liberties elections in so d├ębut where the people is represented where the rights are protected and and that and only that can protect the future and the unity the current unity of syria and those who care who are those who do not care about human rights is so they should care about their own strategic interests and the interests would only be you know dealt with. by the saudi institutions and the saudi public so the saudi attorney general who the government actually ironically sent to turkey to investigates of the murder or
4:44 am
she has requested that the death penalty be put your father some order be put to death do you think that this death penalty will be executed. well did we ever. think that those who were sent to the saudi consulate in istanbul war executed that horrible girl some kellin of my friend. if those who killed jamal high shelf she were just rogue operatives all the header for the 3rd of that operation is still is still in force is still. administered and management the situation in syria so i really can't expect anything finally your father is imprisoned and therefore he's unable to. deliver
4:45 am
a message to his many many followers but also to those who understand. his importance in saudi society and in the region what do you think his message would be if you're was able to speak now from his jail cell i think the message is to protect the future of the peoples the peoples of the gulf. to his message is to to to. to defend the things that he has been defending all his life the basic rights basic liberties the the idea that islam is moderate in nature. is peaceful in nature and and just killing people torture in others.
4:46 am
put in people in jail arbitrarily will will will never help the message will just. well just send the counter message that they're the more the islam that you are promoting is is. just clerics to preach and silence and feminists and just. a bridge in the human rights basic human rights in saudi arabia and that's not what islam is islam is protecting human rights islam is promoting the moderate voices and also islam is empowering women. more than very much for that market.
