If you are not treated fairly, write to me – Saudi King Says

It hasn’t been long since King Salman issued a Royal decree to allow women to drive. King Salman has been liked by not only older Saudis but the young Saudis and expatriates as well. King Salman has driven the Kingdom through difficult times very wisely and bravely. Especially his steps taken in the current financial crisis are remarkable.[irp]

Emirates News has reported that King Salman bin Abdul Aziz has made a public announcement that he wants the residents of his Kingdom to write to him and make him aware if they are being oppressed or if they are not treated with righteousness.

King Salman has informed his people that he wants them to write to him directly through mail or drop by letters free of cost. He wants his people to be happy and live the life they wish to comfort. He also stated that he wouldn’t ever be able to bear the thought that his people under his leadership have lived a life of oppression and were denied justice.

All post office employees must accept these complaints and convey them even if they are of my own sons, grandchildren or family. Let all those employees know that anyone who tries to discourage citizens from sending complaints or even tries to tone it down no matter how small it is, he will be subject to severe punishment.

The King has also called on the people who try to tone down the citizens who are being oppressed or have witnessed oppression. He has also made clear that he will take strict action against all those even if they were his children or family blood who misuse the public property or involved in corruption.

History may have never seen this kind of leadership. The leader who brings forward the pain of his people and tries to provide a bandage for the wounds will truly be successful soon enough in his mission. He doesn’t want God to punish him and the best way is to make is by keeping his people happy and protect them from all harms!
