I came across this disgusting video of young Saudi guys harassing fully covered women on the street. They are shamelessly groping the girls private parts.
Shame on them. It's sickening and upsetting to watch.
There are so many questions that come to mind from such behavior. Is this behavior of civil human beings or wild animals (hayawaan)?
Harassment happens everywhere in the world but when it happens in Saudi-Arabia, when it gets physical and when the targets are veiled Saudi women, it just makes it somehow more shocking because of the culture that surrounds it.
How can a country that is based on Islamic teachings breed this sort of animalistic behavior?
Where are the good manners and respect of women that are taught in the Quran and the prophetic teachings over and over again in the very schools these young men attended?
What kind of examples are their fathers giving them?
How could these men dare to physically attack fully veiled women?
Is the strict gender segregation turning young men into sex crazy animals like these Kenyan monkeys, also in the news recently for sexually harassing women.
Saudi-Arabia is the only country in the world that practises separating the two genders. And is this the result?
What if the girls in the video were his sisters? I bet these same guys would KILL any man harassing their sisters like this.
Where are the religous police when they are needed most? Hai'a would probably arrest and blame the girls for walking out alone..You had it coming at you! You were being promiscious and looking for trouble! The poor men could not control themselves. As if the men were the victims of these seductresses.
What is the veil for? Is it not supposed to protect women from harassment and rape? To command her respect?
So what went wrong with the upbringing of these men if they show such disrespect toward veiled women?
What can be done to stop such behavior? I suggest filming all incidents and posting them online like this one! That should bring needed public shame on the men and their families.
The men in the video and the monkeys in Kenya definitely have something in common.
