"Residents are complaining about the offensive way clothes are displayed in some shops in Sharjah."

"A well-known lingerie shop in Sahara Center is showing its clothes on mannequins.

"My 18-year-old son and his friends went inside a lingerie shop in Sahara Centre where they saw mannequins which were almost naked," a mother and university teacher told Gulf News.

The American mother said that her son called her over the phone to have a look at them.

"It was really embarrassing and offensive. I thought that such behaviour is not allowed, especially in Sharjah," the mother said."

"A young UK national man of Arab origin said he had travelled to many foreign countries but had not seen shops there displaying underwear in this way.

"It is common to see such ways of displaying pajamas, underwear and night dresses here. This is shocking and not attractive," he said. He said such displays were seen only in sex shops and must not be allowed in malls and in areas visited by families.

"To have a decency law means to adhere to the law and to be really decent in everything. I hope that the authorities will take note of that because it is unpleasant and not a nice view for the public the way some shops are displaying their clothes here," he said."



Never was a calendar so aptly chosen and adhered too

Happy 1432 everybody

I remember when I had Mitten, and Atilla wasn't allowed in. I was in the theatre and asked the MALE anaesthetist why my husband wasn't allowed in, and he said it was because according to Islam they aren't allowed to see your you know what, how the hell did they think I got pregnant?
