Saudi religious council: Lifting ban on female drivers would ‘end virginity’ in Kingdom
Saudi’s highest religious council, the Majlis al-Ifta al-Aala, has issued a report stating that allowing women to drive in the country would lead to a surge in sex, pornography, homosexuality and divorce.
Global Post reports:
The report was reportedly prepared for the legislative assembly, or Shura Council, of Saudi Arabia – the only country in the world where women are not allowed behind the wheel.
Within 10 years of the ban being repealed, the report found there would be “no more virgins” in the Islamic kingdom, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.
The scholars, who collaborated with Kamal Subhi, a well-known former professor at the conservative King Fahd University, evidenced this “moral decline” by observing that in other Muslim countries where women are allowed to drive, the decline is already visible.
Wow. And we thought Qatar was wrestling with some problems.
