According to a spokesperson for the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, Saudi women may be forced to cover up their sexy “tempting” eyes.
Spokesman of the Ha’eal district, Sheikh Motlab al-Nabet said the committee has the right to stop a women whose eyes seem “tempting” and order her to cover them immediately.
Saudi women are already forced to wear a loose black dress and to cover their hair and in some areas, their face, while in public or face fines or sometimes worse, including public lashings.
The announcement came days after the Saudi newspaper al-Watan reported that a Saudi man was admitted to a hospital after a fight with a member of the committee when he ordered his wife to cover her eyes. The husband was then stabbed twice in the hand.
The CPVPV is Saudi’s Sharia, Islamic law, executive arm and was founded in 1940 to ensure Islamic laws are not broken in public, yet over the years, the committee has been largely criticized over its human rights violations.
And the committee has no respect for human life when it comes to enforcing these rules. In 2002, the committee didn’t let female students out of their burning schools in Mecca for “not wearing the proper head cover.” They even banned the firemen and policemen from accessing the girls as “it is not okay for girls to be seen without their full Islamic dress in front of strangers.” As a result 15 girls died in fire!
So, you force these women to cover their ankles, legs, hands, arms, hair, face and now eyes? I am so glad that I live in the land of the free!
