I seriously don’t know what good does a woman feel in going out in bikinis and showing her body to all men. A women is precious and should be covered and preserved. If u read more about the teachings of the Quran u will understand the wisdom behind everything what is said by the Almighty!

I was born and raised in KSA for about 17 years. I feel it’s a safe place for women. We can practice Islam here safely unlike other countries who puts ban on religious practices and call themselves a secular country. KSA follows rules based on the teachings of Islam and in Islam women have many rights. It’s just that the outsiders interpret it wrong and instead of reading the Quran, just blindly listen to the media and get a very very wrong idea about Islam.

Instead of showing that others are backwards and dont have rights, talk about countries that are still occupied by western countries and how racist people are to muslim people in the western countries and that muslims woman do not have the right to wear a hijab and practice there religion in frensh schools. I do not deny that there are problems with the law in Saudi but focus on your mistakes before you give this bad image about others. As you have the right to wear a bikini, you have a right to wear modestly, so in saudi women are forbidden to wear bikini and in western countries you are forbidding muslim woman to wear their hijabs, then do not try to show yourselves as developed and liberal because you are not.

Entire saudi system is complete and absolute bidah of the political islam ...muslims ignorance is the biggest cause of attacks on muslim no one else is responsible except muslims themselves

Fuck all these Middle Eastern counties. They should be abolished. Feminazis should fight for women’s rights there, not in the west where everyone has the same rights. But no, moronic politicians and SJWs rather focus on things that don’t matter like people getting offended (boooohoooo) rather than actually caring about people’s rights. The fact that these countries are allowed to exist is a disgrace.

educate your self before making a video. Instead of making such a video, it would be great if you just share the joy of us ladies of saudi arabia about driving. you can open a bank account without a permission from anyone and work without a permission. As for the travel permission, it is to be removed soon. For the dress code, this is a part of our culture that we like to keep alive even without covering the hair. I mean UAE locals still wear the same as saudi but no one point that out!!! the UAE society is exactly like the saudi society in the culture and traditions. if you want to wear a bikini, like life is dependent on it, we do have lots of beaches that you can wear whatever you like there ( A lot in Jeddah), and you do not have to be rich to go there, you can pay an entry fee. i know we have a long way to go but we are proud of who we are and we are proud of the progress that happened. we are taking our time and no need to rush. The way you portrayed our country is not true. I have studied in the United Kingdom and traveled the world and most people here are like this. what your talking about is a minority of people who do not let their daughters do what they want. About 51% of the population is under the age of 25!!!! the young generation is highly educated and is moving foreword. our crown prince , MBS, is 32 and is doing so much for our generation. It would be nice to support and share the happiness and joy of people.

Women can't go out with male friends.. Also mean men can't go out with female friends.. The guardianship system shouldn't be simply criticised.. You need data to show women are not allowed to go out or open bank accounts by their guardian.. Permission of 5 year old brother to get divorce.. Sounds like a blatant lie.. If true it is against Islamic law.. Women don't have to get permission from anyone to get divorce according to sharia

I've lived in Saudi for 9 years and when women wanted to go out they'd just call their driver and go shopping with their friends. In almost all cases, this "guardianship" rule rarely applies and even if it does, it seems to be ignored.

That was not my point. In fact the video you shared just proved my point. The video I shared had no Muslim refugees and its does not matter if a Muslim does this or a Non-Muslim. If you read my other comments, I am against this act altogether AND the source of the problem i.e women marketing themselves as an object.

All humans are equal. Men and women should have equal rights in Saudia Arabia even the quran says men and women are equal and u can't even do that then why are u calling Urself a Muslim country
Najam Ul Abideen Tariq (29 days ago)
1- Cant say much. But why are human rights campaigners against this? I even as a male am against keeping money in banks altogether. 2- Its not only about permission. A male guardian would have to travel with you. This is for your own safety stupid. 3- That's part of shariah law. But by the looks of it, I don't think you really believe in that. And about permission for divorce, they have courts who decide in the end. 4- For privacy. And to protect you from other males. But no, you want to flirt around and when approached by any male, whine about sexual harassment. 5- And then it end with a bikini....... This is dumb, you want to market your assets and then cry about rape and being treated as a sexual object. Who are you?

This is the religion then our politicians in Europe want to import on us against our will.......this religion is not a religion of peace......it's a religion that is a political ideology! That has it's own laws, customs and way of life.....by underline it's about control which as you can see here is all about control.......we Europeans must not allow or tolerate this religion and it's people in our homeland Europe.....we cannot allow it in our FREE society!

What is issue with you people ? We all are muslims and it's our religious and cultural thing. Why don't you mind your own business and tell that rape rate in Saudia Arabia is 0% and its penalty is stoning till death. Let us follow our religion in which we find peace and tranquility. And you peeps can go fuck yourself.

Probably a good man will tell her women(sis, mom, wife, daughter) to cover themselves cuz they r men and they know about the fault in men's mind. This is what Christianity and islam says. Past women of Christian also covered themselves
Seeba Riaz (1 month ago)
I support feminism so its better for women to cover themselves to be protected from evil eyes. This world is dangerous for women.😢 People will see a women with respectfull eyes if she covers herself. Why should women expose their bodies and men get a chance to think dirty about her. Men are also human being. Everyone gets attracted by beauty. Women can wear anything at home for husband.

The west has become a home for gays lesbians feminists neutered beta males and even now confusing kids about their gender. This is disgusting and shameful but you people must be shameless. Please stop trying to turn everyone in the world into you. Your all just a bunch of products of social engineering who are going along with the status quo simply because it is the path of least resistance. In other words you like toys that have been put together on an assembly line and most of you are carbon copies of each other. We don’t want to be like you. To hell with your human rights. We have our own values and ways, please fuck off and confuse your own kids about their gender. Oh and in case anyone is wondering why I’m brining up this gay kids stuff for well it’s because feminists have teamed up with the gays to push the gay agenda. They start by asking you for equality but in the end they will try and force you to become a gay.
