Saudi woman films surreal pursuit by religious police

“Saudi Arabia’s notorious religious police are used to getting their way in shopping centres, never hesitating to sharply rebuke women who they believe aren’t dressed “appropriately”. But last Monday, agents found themselves face to face with a woman who made sure she had the last word.

The incident took place in Riyadh’s Nakheel Mall shopping centre. A woman was shopping with her husband when she was stopped by “muttawa” agents – a term used to designate the religious police. The officers then asked her to leave because her outfit was too “provocative”.

But instead of letting herself get pushed around, she pulled her mobile phone from her pocket and began filming the agents.

Wait till you hear what her crime is.

    Wait till you hear what her crime is.
    In islam, no crime is needed for punishment.
    Merely a formality!

    • This is true.

    Yet again, a muslim man allows a strange man to intimidate his wife. That’s par for the course. They are paranoid about keeping their women concealed from other men, but they become supine when their women are being beaten up by a dirty old pervert in the shopping mall. They wouldn’t defend their own daughters from a rapist.

      .Why are keeping Saudi Arabia around?

      Because it is the largest slave holding nation and someone has to do it.

    What a swell job for Saudi fellows inclined toward bullying behavior and general harassment of women. Do they apply for a position or just sort of self-appoint? Are they paid for jacking people around or do they do it to express their inner evil?

    I saw that nutter with the beard just last week at Peel and St. Catherine’s Blvd. in Mtl. – walking in and out of stores with his cell phone, taking photos of signs.
