  5. The comment from Ahmed Qassim al-Ghamdi, former chief of the religious police in the holy city of Makkah, comes as 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman pursues a far-reaching liberalisation drive that has upended years of conservative tradition. ? Arab News RIYADH: A prominent Saudi cleric on Wednesday endorsed Valentine's Day, long forbidden in kingdom, calling it a "positive social event" that was not linked to religion. The comment from Ahmed Qassim al-Ghamdi, former chief of the religious police in the holy city of Makkah, comes as 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman pursues a far-reaching liberalisation drive that has upended years of conservative tradition. "It is a positive social event and congratulating people for it is not against sharia (law)," Ghamdi told Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television. "It is an act of kindness to share greetings on Western national and social holidays, including Valentine's Day, exchange red roses with others, as long as it is towards peaceful people who do not share animosity or are being at war with Muslims." Such comments from the Saudi clerical establishment would be inconceivable around two years ago. In recent years, Saudi Arabia launched a series of reforms, including gradually diminishing their powers to arrest. Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who has vowed to return the country to "moderate Islam", has further cut back the political role of clerics in a historic reordering of the Saudi state. Florists openly sold red roses and Valentine's Day memorabilia in cities such as Jeddah on Wednesday without any trouble. The declining presence of the religious police has been met with relief from many of the country's young, but it has also sparked concern over a possible backlash from arch-conservatives. But opposition to the prince's reforms has been muted ? at least publicly ? after his crackdown on dissent, including arrests of prominent clerics with millions of followers on social media.
  6. Sheikh Abdullah al-Mutlaq, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, said Muslim women should dress modestly, but this did not necessitate wearing the abaya-Reuters DUBAI: Saudi women need not wear the abaya - the loose-fitting, full-length robes symbolic of religious faith - a senior member of the top Muslim clerical body said. On his television program, Sheikh Abdullah al-Mutlaq, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, said Muslim women should dress modestly, but this did not necessitate wearing the abaya. ?More than 90 percent of pious Muslim women in the Muslim world do not wear abayas,? Sheikh Mutlaq said on Friday. ?So we should not force people to wear abayas.? While not necessarily signalling a change in the law, the statement is the first of its kind from a senior religious figure. It follows the recent pattern of freedoms the Kingdom has been witnessing with the ascent of young Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to power. Only the government-appointed clerics associated with the Council of Senior Scholars are allowed to issue fatwas, or Islamic legal opinions. Their interpretations of Islamic law form the basis of Saudi Arabia?s legal system. Saudi women have started wearing more colorful abayas in recent years, the light blues and pinks in stark contrast with the traditional black. Open abayas over long skirts or jeans are also becoming more common in some parts of the country. The trend marks a major change in the last couple of years. In 2016, a Saudi woman was detained for removing her abaya on a main street in the capital of Riyadh. Local media reported that she was detained after a complaint was filed with the religious police. The Kingdom has seen an expansion in women?s rights recently, such as the decision passed to allow women to attend mixed public sporting events and the announcement that Saudi Arabia would grant them the right to drive. These are some of the many changes the country has undergone in recent months, hailed as proof of a new progressive trend in the deeply conservative Muslim Kingdom. But despite these changes, the gender-segregated nation is criticised for its continued constraints on women. Activists have blasted the country?s guardianship system which requires a male family member to grant permission for a woman to study abroad, travel and other activities. On Thursday, a London-based Saudi rights group, ALQST, reported the detention last month of activist Noha al-Balawi, saying she was questioned by Saudi authorities on her involvement with women?s rights and human rights movements. The government?s Centre for International Communications did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
  7. A medical examination confirmed the sexual assault, after which a case was registered against the cleric, police said KARACHI: Police have arrested a seminary teacher for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old student in the city?s Gulistan-e-Johar locality. The minor boy informed police that the cleric, Qari Muhammad Saleem sexually assaulted him on Friday night inside the madrassah, which prompted the police to conduct a raid and apprehend the accused. Rape, murder of minor Zainab sparks outrage; two killed in Kasur protests Chief Justice takes suo motu notice after violent protests in Kasur and public outrage on social media A medical examination confirmed the sexual assault, after which a case was registered against the cleric, police said. Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Khan Siyal has taken notice of the incident, seeking a detailed inquiry report from East Deputy Inspector General of Police, The News reported. A number of sexual assault cases against minors in the country have surfaced in the past month. The brutal rape and murder of minor Zainab in Kasur prompted countrywide condemnations, prompting a debate on child *** abuse. A six-year-old boy in Karachi was sexually assaulted in a Karachi bakery on January 8, Geo News reported on Saturday. The accused was arrested from the jurisdiction of the Napier police station and was remanded into police custody, police officials said.
  8. DUBAI: A Saudi cleric who said women should not drive because their brains shrink to a quarter the size of a man´s when they go shopping has been banned from preaching, state television said. Saad al-Hijri was suspended from all religious activity after advising against allowing women to drive in a speech that contained comments "diminishing human value", the broadcaster quoted a spokesman for the governor of Asir province as saying. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that bans women from driving, despite ambitious government targets to increase their public role, especially in the workforce. Women in the kingdom are also bound by law to wear abaya and a headscarf and require the consent of a male guardian for most legal actions. In a video identifying him as the head of the religious edicts department in the southern province, Hijri asked what the traffic department would do it if it discovered a man with only half a brain. "Would it give him a license or not? It would not. So how can it give it to a woman when she has only half?" he said. "If she goes to the market she loses another half. What is left? A quarter...We demand the traffic department check because she is not suitable to drive and she has only a quarter." The comments sparked anger on social media, which is hugely popular in the kingdom. Twitter users shared the video, many criticising it and making jokes about his remarks, under the Arabic hashtag "Al-Hijri_women_quarter_brain". Some users posted pictures of Saudi female scientists and academics in response and questioned Hijri´s own intellectual capacities. His suspension, ordered by the provincial governor, was aimed at preventing the spread of views that spark controversy and do not serve the national interest, the provincial spokesman said, according to Ekhbariya TV´s official Twitter account. Any others who used religious platforms to preach such views would also be banned. The government´s modernising reforms, backed by Saudi Arabia´s business class, have sparked tensions with influential clerics upon whose support the ruling family relies. Some clerics have millions of followers on social media.
