Sanctity of Saudi as a whole or only the two cities

Question ID: 32308

Assalam o aliakum,
A woman, who lives in Riyadh, is sick and is finding difficulty in travelling to the hospital due to a number of reasons. Her daughter, who lives in Pakistan, comes to know of her plight and in anger says “you live in a manhoos (translated as portentous, ominous) place where you cannot do much on your own” or something similar to that effect. It can be assumed that no mal-intent was intended towards the two holy cities rather only towards the current saudi state and laws.

1. Do the uttered words result in kufr and require re-entry into the fold of Islam and a new Nikkah?
2. It is obvious that the two holy cities are sacred. How far does that sanctity extend to? Does it encompass the Saudi state ?

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُاللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

1.) No.
2.) Just the 2 Blessed cities – Makkah and Madinah.
