Islamabad: Slamming the release of secret diplomatic cables by whistle blower website WikiLeaks for ‘maligning the leadership of every country’, a senior Saudi diplomat has called the website “a rapist’s propaganda”.
“If any body takes a piece of paper, writes his malicious ideas on it, and posts them at a website, what would you call it? This is just a stupid conspiracy to create rift in Muslim brothers,” The Nation quoted Saleh Al Mugheeri, head of Media and Non-Political Affairs at Embassy of Saudi Arabia to Pakistan, as saying.
It is pertinent to mention that the Interpol has issued a ‘wanted’ notice in Sweden against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in connection with "sex crimes".
Assange has been denying any wrongdoing, however, admitted having unprotected but consensual encounters with two women during a visit to Sweden in August.
“This guy who is actually a rapist and faces charges in Swedish courts is out there to spread baseless information against us. Not only us, he has spared nobody. The leadership of every country has been maligned by his notorious ideas. This is just foolish. WikiLeaks is just a rapist’s propaganda,” Mugheeri said.
Earlier this week, WikiLeaks had made a startling disclosure that Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah had lobbied for the US’ attack on Iran.
“Why would Saudi Arabia conspire to attack a Muslim state?” questioned Mugheeri, adding, “It’s just a poor effort to gain attention.”
