If a SIM is registered in your name, and it is used by the unauthorized way for some terrorism activity, believe me, you are in deep trouble. To avoid this, you should check if any unauthorized number is registered under your Iqama. Finally, a service has been launched in Saudi Arabia with the help of CITC (Communication and Information Technology Center) to know about the phone, mobile phone, and internet connections registered under your Iqama.
