Brave Saudi Arabian Woman Confronts Religious Police Officer Harassing Her (VIDEO)

Huff Post

The Hayat Mall in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, probably sees a constant stream of religious police, or mutaween, attempting to keep a check on female morality.

But when one brave Saudi woman had enough, she flipped on her camera phone and made sure her harasser — and the rest of the world — knew he was out of place,Gawker reports.

“You have no right to harass anyone,” the unidentified woman said in her video. “You are not the boss of me, and you can’t tell me not to wear nail polish.”

Instead of leaving the mall for having freshly manicured nails like she was ordered to, the woman told the mutawwa that his job is to advise people, not threaten them, and that the government had promised “no more chasing.”

According to the Saudi Gazette, the video has caused the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice to investigate the incident.

“For your information, this video is on its way to Facebook and Twitter as we speak,” she said.

  1. Good to see. Better would have been to see the glimpses of this bold lady or might be she was filming herself. Very soon so called SA Monarch is likely to fall down. Just a matter of time.
