Good News Tuesday: Nazia Is Free

Remember Nazia Quazi? I have blogged about her detention in Saudi Arabia before on at least two occasions. She has now been allowed to leave the country and marry her boyfriend in Dubai.

It's wonderful. Still, don't you think the plot of the story has been rewritten to get to the happy conclusion? I don't remember it being all about not letting Nazia get married, but that's what it is now.

The new plot is not about her right to determine her own life, not about her being a Canadian citizen kept in Saudi Arabia by her father and not about how the powers-that-be let Nazia's incarceration continue. The new plot is a Romeo-and-Juliet story.

Nothing to see here. Move on, ladies.
