Women with sexy eyes in Saudi Arabia might be forced to cover them, according to the spokesman of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (CPVPV) in the conservative Gulf kingdom.
One spokesperson, Sheikh al-Motlab Nabet said that the committee has the right to stop a woman whose eyes appear to be "tempting" and ordered her to immediately cover her eyes. Saudi women are already required to wear a burqa. Even their hands must be covered. They have no right to drive. And legal penalties for offenses are really harsh. Imagine if they wore lingerie
The announcement comes just days after a Saudi fought with a committee member, who wanted to force his wife to hide the eyes. The man ended up in hospital after being attacked with a knife. Some people are even sarcastically wondering if it would not be simpler to directly put out the eyes of all baby girls instead of forcing them to wear dark glasses.
