Women’s rights on full display in the birthplace of islam.
A woman has been arrested for breaking Saudi Arabia’s ban on female drivers.
She was stopped by a police patrol after driving six miles to collect her husband near their home in the town of Buraida.
Story found in the Daily Mail.
As her ‘legal guardian’ he had to sign a declaration that he would not let his wife drive again.
It is not yet known if she has been released or if she faces legal action.
Saudi Arabia is the only country that forbids women from driving.
The ban is based on religious rulings from clerics who say it is un-Islamic.
Civil rights activists in the country have begun lobbying the government to lift the ban.
Her legal guardian had to sign a promise to not let her drive again. Wow. And muslim women actually want to live like this. Brings mental defective to a new level.
