While many women in Saudi Arabia have been pushing for the right to drive vehicles, the country’s highest religious council, the Majlis al-Ifta al-Aala says that if this were to happen the number of virgins in Saudi Arabia could dwindle down to ZERO in as many as ten years.
Frightening stuff to be sure. Their report, which was published in conjunction with the former professor at King Fahd University Kamal Subhi goes on to say that an increase in female drivers could also “provoke a surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce.”
Their solution is to cover the women in head to toes, including their eyes if necessary. This is to prevent their eyes from “tempting” the men of the country.
Saudi Arabia remains the only country in the world where women are not allowed to drive. If caught they face public lashings, jail and ostracism.
