Few days ago, my friends have been arrested by one of the undercover agents of Heya (https://www.pv.gov.sa). He met this undercover on one of iPhone hook-up applications and decided to meet him. As soon as he took out from his car he got arrested by Heya. This undercover agent did not use a fake image so that my friend could recognize him. Apparently, he looked pretty normal and young. My friend has been released on bail and he is waiting for his court hearing.
This story has shocked me because the purpose of Amr-bi-Al'Maroof is not making traps for people and encouraging them to do "sins". This practice is both non-Islamic and non-humanistic.
I don't what I can do to help friend. I am sure many other gay people have been arrested by Heya with the same scenario. We should spread the news to prevent other people become victim of Saudi official undercover agents. .
