Sharia law could see women jailed for DANCING as Saudi morality police find viral video
SAUDI Arabia’s ‘morality police’ have arrested several women alleged to be among those filmed drinking, dancing and “mixing” with men.
In the video, which shocked the conservative Muslim state, women dressed in Western-style clothes can be seen dancing on tables at a “mixed” party in Jeddah, according to local media.
The partygoers were reportedly held after they were also spotted surrounded by bottles and drinks, which are alleged to be alcohol.
The Middle Eastern state has strict rules governing the mixing and socialisation of unrelated men and women – as well as a total ban on the use and sale of alcohol.
The video, which was posted on YouTube, shows a group of young men enjoying themselves alongside the women on a terrace of a building, with music playing in the background.
