Saudi police in Riyadh arrested an Indian immigrant who allegedly disrespected Islam’s holy Kaaba site on Facebook, covering it with an image of Buddha, a local report said Monday.
“The region’s investigative department were able to capture and arrest a suspect, in his forties and who works in agriculture, who insulted our holy site,” said a Riyadh police spokesman cited by the Al-Arabiya TV network.
“He superimposed a picture of the Buddha on the Kaaba and posted on social media,” Al-Arabiya quoted the spokesman as adding.
The police were able to identify and arrest the unnamed Indian at a farm in Al-Majmaah city in the province of Riyadh, he said.
The Kaaba, an ancient monument at the centre of the Al-Masjid al-Haram mosque in Mecca, is Islam's most sacred place.
