The organisers, who have come under fire after receiving a barrage of criticism from Saudi activists and social media users, had no choice but to cancel the course.

Many users shared the image of the course’s advertisement on their accounts and reacted angrily to the charity’s invitation, considering it as a call for encouraging men to marry more than once.
