Men and women in Saudi Arabia are continually told about terrorist actions in the world which pose a threat to their nation, but the “terrorists” who wander their streets seeking acts of “evil” by individuals such as a man and a woman walking down the street discussing a business issue are never prevented from arresting the culprits of crime. The Saudi Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Crime(CPVPV) finally encountered some women who decided to fight back. A woman was talking with a man when the CPVPV arrived at the scene of the “crime.” She took out a pistol and fired in order to allow her male friend to flee the scene. Another woman became so infuriated that she punched one of the CPVPV men and sent him to the hospital.
Human Rights activist, Wajiha Huwaida told the media: “People are fed up with these religious police and how they have to pay the price for the humiliation they put people through for year after year. This is just the beginning and there will be more resistance.”
Some Muslim leaders believe it is OK to harass women, but printing a cartoon…..!!!
