Saudi Arabia’s feared Islamic police mounted a fresh campaign against clothes shops in one of the Gulf Kingdom’s largest cities to stop them from selling colourful gowns to women, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice raided many shops in the western town of Taif and confiscated a large quantity of ornamented women’s gowns, Sabq online Arabic language daily said.

“The Commission members made dealers write a statement pledging not to sell these gowns again…many other deals had shut their shops and fled just before the Commission inspectors raided the market.”

Just before the end of 2010, a large force from the Commission stormed garments shops in the Saudi capital Riyadh and confiscated thousands of ornamented dresses and gowns, which also carry writings.

  1. Gotta be prudent and virtuous. Those brightly coloured bean bags are likely to atract inappropriate male attention and that just would not do.

    Good to see that the anti-fun-and-gaiety police are out doing there jobs with such thoroughness. Their actions are sure going to make the world a better place ?!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

    1. “Governments are instituted among Men”
      and the women can just shut up and get back into the kitchen?

      Maybe this all needs updating too:

  3. LMAO at that red, polka-dotted number……..
