Video Of Saudi Young Girl Wearing Miniskirt In Public, Sparks Controvery (Videos)
A young Saudi woman has sparked a controversy after she posted a video of herself wearing a miniskirt and crop top in public. While some have rushed to her defence and some are calling for her arrest. Saudi websites reported that officials in the Kingdom are looking into taking action against the woman for violating the dress rules. Saudi women are supposed to wear abaya in public with their hair and face covered. Exceptions, are however, made for visiting dignitaries. The video was first shared on social media app Snapechat which showed the woman walking around in historic in fort Ushaiager, a village in Riyath. Many of the Kingdom's most conservative tribes and families come from Ushaiager. Soon, competing Twitter hashtags emerged. One user demanded the arrest of the woman while other said the freedom of dress should not be a crime. Some defended her referring to the images of visiting dignitaries, including those of Melania and Ivanka Trump, while both were modestly dressed, forewent head covering and abaya.
