Saudi police arrest woman for wearing unlawful miniskirt that didn't follow Islamic law

SPREAD THE WORD:

The woman has since been released without charges, but that didn't stop thousands of Saudi citizens for demanding her trial and execution for wearing clothes not adhering to Islamic Law.


A woman in Saudi Arabia was detained for questioning by police after she was filmed wearing a miniskirt and crop-top in public.

In Saudi Arabia, that's grounds to be called for questioning by police.

The woman has since been released without charges, but that didn't stop thousands of Saudi citizens for demanding her trial and execution for wearing clothes not adhering to Islamic Law.

Many Saudi citizens demanded the woman be punished for "breaking Saudi dress code" adhering to Islamic Law. Women are expected, and apparently enforced, to wear loose-fitting clothes and cover their hair.

However, the video showed the woman featured in a viral video wearing a miniskirt and a crop top as she walked through a Saudi city. She told investigators that the video was published without her knowledge, according to a statement. She was reportedly released Tuesday evening without charges and the prosecutors have closed the case.


The video is film in Najd, one of the most conservative areas in Saudi Arabia. It is the city the founder of Wahhabism - the austere form of Sunni Islam that is practiced by the Saudi royal family and religious establishment - was born in the late 18th Century.
The video quickly went viral on Twitter, where Saudi's critics used the hashtag "demand_the_trial_of_Model_Khulood".
Other users came to the woman's defense, calling her actions "bravery" and insisting that she should be allowed to wear what she wants.
The woman was filmed walking around a Saudi Arabia city wearing a mini skirt and crop top, which doesn't adhere to Islamic Law. She was arrested and called to questioning by Saudi police, but later released without charges. That didn't stop thousands from demanding her trial and execution.
The Saudi woman who was detained by police for questioning was seen in a viral video posted to Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.

In Saudi Arabia, women are also banned from driving, are separated from unrelated men, and must be accompanied by or receive written permission from a male guardian - usually a father, husband or brother - if they want to travel, work or have healthcare.
