Human Rights First Society (HRFS) is dedicated to protecting and defending human rights in Saudi Arabia, in accordance with Islamic teachings. We stand for applying the rule of law, freedoms of expression and association, and abolishing all discrimination in Saudi society on the basis of gender or religious belief. We will use all peaceful means to advocate that the Saudi government respects article 26 of the Basic Rule for Governing the Kingdom, which came into force on 2/3/1992. Article 26 stipulates: “The nation defends human rights – in accordance to Islamic Shariah”. HRFS will communicate its concerns to and share information with Saudi citizens, the media, government agencies and officials, and members of the Consultative Council (Majlis Al-Shura) in its efforts to achieve its goals.
HRFS will coordinate and work with human rights groups in other Gulf States, the Middle East and in the international arena to achieve its objectives.
