Default Meeting a woman?

Disgraceful!!!! He deserves everything that's coming to him, if you ask me......

This from Reuters..........

Amnesty urges release of Saudi facing flogging

RIYADH (Reuters) - Amnesty International has urged Saudi authorities to release a Saudi university professor who is facing flogging and imprisonment for meeting a woman to whom he is not related for coffee in the conservative Islamic kingdom.

Muhammad Ali Abu Raziza, a psychology lecturer at the university of Mecca, has been sentenced to 150 lashes and eight months in jail after the religious police caught him with a woman in a coffee shop, the rights group said in a statement. Justice ministry officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Saudi Arabia applies an austere form of Islam which bans women from mixing with men to whom they are not related, voting and driving, and punishes men and women found guilty of illegal encounters, known as khilwa offences. The statement did not say what happened to the woman who was meeting Abu Raziza.

"Saudi Arabia should stop needlessly persecuting people like this -- we want to see a complete end to people in the kingdom being punished for 'khilwa' offences," Amnesty said.

The religious police, known as the Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, have wide powers to search for alcohol, drugs and prostitution, ensure shops are closed during prayers in addition to maintaining a strict system of sexual segregation.

Criticism of the force has re-emerged after its members were involved in a series of incidents, which led to the deaths of six people in car chases.

these religious policemen are you doing great job as far as i know in Saudia Arabia

however, some of them... well not even some .. very few of them make mistakes ..

the media highlights these mistakes just to drive people to hate them

i heared alot of good stories about them from people.

my Question is..... how come they ignore the huge mistakes of the policemen (none religious) in Soudia Arabia (although some of them are extermly bad)

(^__^)

Perhaps now we can understand why posters come on here asking if couples can hold hands, or have to walk 3 paces behind the men!

every nation has it's own culture and religious believes ..

and people must respect each other.

Saudia Arabia is the place where islam started from and they must act as islam is asking them to act ... specially that the government is based on an islamic foundation.

I wish you would use "spell check" in your posts...as for Saudi culture, I agree that the rules are the rules. However, it's so hypocritical of KSA to enforce such a draconian system upon their subjects when their leaders are the first at the bar, brothel or casino when travelling abroad.

it worries me that no mention of the females punishment is mentioned, surely her 'crime' would be seen as worse than the mans.
