Reason
He is the son of Dr Safar al-Hawali, and Saudi authorities suspect he may have information about the leaking of the electronic book ‘Muslims and Western Civilisation’ written by his father, since he was living with his father and taking care of him.

Method
Masked security forces surrounded his father's house in al-Baha before storming the grounds of the house and knocking violently the door. One of Dr Safar’s grandchildren opened the door, and security forces entered the house, some wearing military uniforms and others wearing civilian clothes.
