It must be challenging to be a columnist in an authoritarian Kingdom where you are expected to heap praise on the King while avoiding the line that divides utter fawning and divine worship. It appears that Ramadan al-Anzi crossed that line and is now suspended for using praise reserved to the Almighty as opposed to the merely magnificent.
Ramadan al-Anzi was heaping praise on King Salman when he described him as “Haleem”, or forbearing, and “Shadeed al-Eqab.” Those particular praises are apparently reserved for God. The newspaper however ironically showed how it is rather hard to tell the difference when the writers are expected to spare no adjective for the Crown: “The phrases and tribute which the author bestowed on the personality of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, are not acceptable, despite what God had bestowed upon him, may God protect him, of the honour of serving the two holy mosques, Islam, the homeland and the people.”
One can certainly understand the confusion. Of course there is another possibility called free speech and free press.
