Sending an Heart Emoji to a Girl can lead you to Prison?

Warning! If you send the ‘heart’ emoji to a girl, you could go to jail.

Some people show their love on social media sites like WhatsApp by using the ‘heart’ emoji, but this is now illegal in Kuwait, just like it was in Saudi Arabia before.

Gulf News says that in Kuwait, it is illegal to send the ‘heart’ emoji to a girl on WhatsApp or any other social networking site.

A Kuwaiti lawyer named Haya Al-Shalahi said that people who did this could get up to two years in jail and a fine of more than 2,000 Kuwaiti Dinars if they were found guilty.

In the same way, it was reported in February 2017 that sharing the “red heart” emoji on WhatsApp could lead to jail time in Saudi Arabia, which is close by.

Saudi law says that if you do this, you could go to jail for two to five years and have to pay a fine of up to 100,000 Saudi Riyals.

Cybercrime experts in Saudi Arabia say that sending the’ red heart’ emoji on WhatsApp is considered a form of harassment in the country. Al-Ma’atouq Qutbi, a member of the Anti-Fraud Association, explained that someone can be charged with harassment if they file a case during an online chat that includes certain pictures and emojis.

But if someone breaks the law more than once, the fine could go up to 300,000 Saudi Riyals and the person could go to jail for up to five years.
