Saudis Arrest Christian for Entering Mecca

By Michael Freund

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that a Nirosh Kamanda, a Sri Lankan Christian was arrested in Mecca . Mecca is Islam’s holiest site and in keeping with the well known tolerance of Islam no Christians or other non Muslims are allowed there.

He was arrested for selling goods outside the Great Mosque. We normally get word through our network about arrests in Saudi but have not heard word on this arrest but the JPost is a very reliable paper.
