The woman, and any other westerner for that matter, should avoid Dubai and any other Arab state unless unavoidable. Spending money there only goes to prop up these regimes, why should more western money, not to mention all the “aid money” the Tundra Tabloids views as “jizya” money, be given to the Mussulman? KGS
A British holidaymaker has been charged with indecency in Dubai after walking through the world’s largest shopping centre in a bikini.The woman was buying clothes and gifts in the Dubai Mall, fully dressed but in a low-cut top, when she was accosted by an Arabic woman and criticised for wearing ‘revealing clothing’.The pair then became embroiled in a heated row in front of hundreds of bemused shoppers.Incensed by the Arabic woman’s comments, the British woman told her to ‘mind her own business’ before stripping out of her clothes and ‘taunting’ the locals by walking around in only her bikini, it is alleged.The mall’s security team then intervened and called the police, who arrested the British holidaymaker.The woman, whose identity is unknown, was still being questioned by officers in Bur Dubai police station last night.A source within Dubai police said: ‘The British woman was wearing a very low top and most of her legs were on display.‘The Arabic woman stopped to criticise her and that’s when she stripped off. That’s when things started to get out of hand.‘We ended up questioning both women after receiving a call from the mall security staff.’There are numerous signs around the Dubai Mall urging women to ‘wear respectful clothing-Similar messages are flashed up on LCD screens in most shopping malls across the United Arab Emirates.Dubai, which attracts more than one million British tourists a year, tends to operate a more lenient policy than other Arab states.However, officials in the Gulf state have prosecuted several British tourists for indecent behaviour over the past two years.
