Another Intellectual Seeks Asylum [Archives:2000/20/Local News]

May 15 2000

Reliable sources told YT that Abdul Karim Al-Razihi, a writer, is preparing himself to seek political asylum at the Dutch Embassy due to the blasphemy campaigns waged against him by Salafyoon mosques, Aden. They charge him of atheism and infidelity, especially after publishing a poem titled “A Summer Night Dream”. They claim that he charges angels and acquits Satan when he said in his poem “A Satan sees me and an angel seduced me.”.
It’s worth noting that this is not the first time Al-Razihi came under such campaigns.
