Saudi distances itself from promotional video on feminism, homosexuality and atheism as extremist ideas

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s state security agency distanced itself on Tuesday from a promotional video that categorized feminism, homosexuality and atheism as extremist ideas, blaming it on an action by individuals.

The animated clip was posted on Twitter at the weekend by a verified account of the State Security Presidency which reports directly to the king.

It has since been removed. In a statement published by state television, the security agency said the video contained a number of mistakes in defining extremism, and that the individuals who made the video did not do their job properly. (RTRS)
