Saudi cleric, who once headed Mecca’s religious police, receives death threats after his wife appears with him on TV wearing make-up and without a veil

Wow, what a floozy!

A Saudi cleric who once headed Mecca’s religious police has received death threats after his wife appeared with him on TV wearing make-up without a veil.

Sheikh Ahmed al-Ghamdi and his wife told the audience of a chat show that Islam does not require women to hide their faces behind a niqab in public.

However his ‘radical’ views have created a storm of controversy after his smiling wife, Jawaher bint Al-Sheikh Ali, was seen uncovered, even wearing nail varnish [ed: Loose woman! Stone her!].
