The Saudi Constitution has no value and King Salman has no authority, Saudi Arabia’s Prince Abdulaziz Bin Fahd, the son of the late King, wrote on Twitter.

“The principles of the constitution are valueless … We have the Quran and Sunnah as the only references, and if you do not like the law of God, you may leave,” the controversial figure said.

Are you not ashamed? The only authority and reference is Allah Almighty and what Allah inspired to his servant and his messenger Muhammad, peace be upon him.

Bin Fahd is famous for stirring controversy, most recently by repeatedly criticised Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed, describing him as “villainous” and “cowardly”. He later said he would rather lose his neck than remove his comments from Twitter.
