Who is Jamal Khashoggi? – Times of India

Jamal Khashoggi is a dissident Saudi Arabia journalist, who wrote for The Washington Post and lived in the United States as a legal permanent resident. He has been a leading critic of Saudi Arabia’s current leadership.
Khashoggi had penned a column in the Washington Post and was a fierce critic of Riyadh’s human rights violations and of the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s policies.
Khashoggi went missing since he entered the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2, 2018, for the paperwork needed for his planned marriage.
Turkish investigative agencies have claimed that he was brutally killed inside the consulate. They claim to have audio and video evidence of it.
However, Saudi Arabia has denied the allegations and said that Khashoggi left the consulate same day.
Khashoggi’s disappearance has strained relations of Saudi Arabia with the United States.
