Know why this Saudi doctor sued a WhatsApp group admin
Frustrated and tired with an "annoying" group on WhatsApp, a Saudi Arabia-based doctor has filed a lawsuit to sue the admin of that particular group. He backs it up by saying that his consent was not taken before adding him to the group. However if "he doesn't prove he suffered anything negative," his case stands the chance to get dismissed, said senior lawyers.
He tracked the group for an entire day
It all happened when the medic returned from Hajj and noticed that he was added to a group on the chat medium. Initially he ignored the messages, but "They kept sending useless messages wasting my time," he complained. To realize how "useless" those messages were, he spent an entire day sifting through those. "Silly videos, fake news and rumors," were all he got.
His case may get dismissed, say senior Saudi lawyer
Irritated, he decided to slap a legal case, which may get rejected as well, said Saudi lawyer Khaled Abou Rashed. He said courts in the Kingdom have considered similar cases in the past but accepting those depend solely on their nature. "If he doesn't prove he suffered anything negative because he was added to the WhatsApp group, a judge might dismiss the case."
"No time for WhatsApp but has time to sue"
Now as expected, social media went crazy. Some suggested, "Why didn't he just leave the group," while some remarked, "Yeah it shows that he's really busy." A guy also attached a GIF, titled, "Group admins now", showing a man sipping water nervously. But the comment that garnered maximum attention is this: He doesn't have time for WhatsApp but has time to sue someone? True!
