Dammam, Asharq Al-Awsat- Members of Khobar’s Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice were the victims of an attack by two Saudi females, Asharq Al-Awsat can reveal.
According to the head of the commission in Khobar, two girls pepper sprayed members of the commission after they had tried to offer them advice.
Head of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice in the Eastern province Dr. Mohamed bin Marshood al-Marshood, told Asharq Al Awsat that two of the Commission’s employees were verbally insulted and attacked by two inappropriately-dressed females, in the old market in Prince Bandar street, an area usually crowded with shoppers during the month of Ramadan.
Notice how the crowd didn’t take the Religious Police’s side, either.
According to Dr. Al-Marshood, the two commission members approached the girls in order to “politely” advice and guide them regarding their inappropriate clothing.
It gets better:
Consequently, the two girls started verbally abusing the commission members, which then lead to one of the girls pepper-spraying them in the face as the other girl filmed the incident on her mobile phone, while continuing to hurl insults at them.
The Eastern Province’s head of the commission also revealed that with the help of the police his two employees were able to control the situation.
The two females were then escorted to the police station where they apologized for the attack, were cautioned and then released.
Way to go, girls!
I predict that demand for pepper spray and video phones will continue to increase among Saudi females.
And then there’s the handy-dandy Taser C2, especially designed “for independent, self-reliant women”, available in four designer colors for $299.95. I wonder if they ship to Saudi.
Five years ago Saudi Arabia’s religious police stopped 15 schoolgirls from leaving a blazing building, and stopped men who tried to help the girls and warned “it is sinful to approach them”.
Things are changing.
