Yet another fatwa: Saudi Arabia cleric says Saudi Women driver should not be allowed to drive as driving would expose them to evil

According to Saudi Arabia’s chief cleric women should not be allowed to driving as this would expose them to evil.

Chief cleric have another reason to support his bizzare claim. According to him women should not allowed driving as male relatives were not able to locate them .

Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah al-Sheikh said men “obsessed with women” and with “weak spirits” could end up causing female drivers harm and that male relatives would not know their whereabouts.

It is very difficult for women to obtain driving license though women driving is legal in Saudi Arabia.
