According to a report by some conservation Muslim scholars, released yesterday, allowing women drivers in Saudi Arabia will tempt them into sex, prostitution, divorce, pornography and create more homosexuals! Not my word but theirs. Which is a load of holy bullshit; everyone knows that if you have more women drivers all you get is more accidents!!! Kidding, kidding, please do not stone me to death ladies.
The Arab country is the only nation in the world than bans women from driving cars or any other vehicles. Academics at the Majlis al-Ifta’ al-A’ala, which is Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, said the relaxation of the rules would inevitably lead to “no more virgins”. The report pointed out that “moral decline” could already be seen in those other Muslim countries in which women are allowed to drive. Within 10 years of the ban being lifted, it claimed, there would be “no more virgins” in the Islamic kingdom.
Women caught driving in Saudi face corporal punishment. In September, Shaima Jastaniya, 34, a Saudi woman, was sentenced to 10 lashes with a whip after being caught driving in Jeddah. There has been strong protest in the country about the sentence, which was later overturned by King Abdullah, and about the law generally but resistance to reform remains strong among the traditionally conservative royal family and clerics.
The Saudi government is currently considering a proposal to ban women – already forced to cover up most of their body in public – from even displaying their eyes, if they are judged too “tempting”.
