Arab World’s Rising Tides of Secularism

Many Reports have documented the growing undercurrent of disillusionment with Theocracy in the Gulf States. And with the rise of social media, these groups and activists have become more visible and outspoken despite the obvious dangers, exemplified by the End Male Guardianship Campaign led by Saudi Women this year.

  3. Religion per se is seldom malign, but there are always those who use it for their own nefarious purposes. ISIS is a case in point. Those who support it are digging their own trapholes.
