    Men banned from Saudi Arabia for being "too handsome"




    At least three men attending an annual culture festival in Saudi Arabia were kicked out of the country after religious police officers deemed them "too handsome" to stay.

    The men, delegates from the United Arab Emirates, were minding their own business at the Jenadrivah Heritage & Cultural Festival in Riyadh when members of the mutaween suddenly "stormed" the pavilion and removed the men by force.

    "A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission [for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices] members feared female visitors could fall for them," the Arabic-language newspaper Elaph reported this week.

    The Emirati delegates were subsequently deported back to their home country.

    According to an official statement released by the UAE delegation following the incident, it seems the religious police were unnerved by the presence of an unnamed female artist from the UAE.

    "Her visit to the UAE stand was a coincidence as it was not included in the programme which we had already provided to the festival's management," said UAE delegation head Saeed Al Kaabi in his apology to festival officials.

    UAE says female artists sparked police incident in Saudi

    Report says three “handsome” Emiratis were expelled by Saudi religious police

    Published Monday, April 15, 2013

    The UAE stand at an annual culture festival in Saudi Arabia has issued a statement clarifying why a religious police man had stormed the stand before he was forced out by members of the Gulf Kingdom’s national guards. It said the cop was attracted by the presence of an Emirati female artist at the stand.

    Also at the festival in the capital Riyadh, several Saudi religious police men stormed the UAE pavilion on Sunday and evicted three Emirati young men because “they are too handsome,” according to the Saudi news website Elaph.

    The statement by the UAE stand did not identify the artist but noted that her visit was not previously arranged and that she had come to the UAE pavilion by “coincidence.”

    “Her visit to the UAE stand was a coincidence as it was not included in the programme which we had already provided to the festival’s management,” Saeed Al Kaabi, head of the UAE delegation to the festival, said in a statement.

    A U-Tube film published in Saudi newspapers this week showed national guard members were evicting a member of the feared Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice from the UAE pavilion at Genaderia festivities in Riyadh after he stormed the stand. The incident triggered furor in the Kingdom, with the Commission Chairman Abdul Latif Al Shaikh calling for an investigation.

    In its report, Elaph said several religious cops deployed through the festival rushed into the UAE pavilion on Sunday and escorted three Emirati delegates out.

    “A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” the news service said, adding that the festival’s management took urgent measures to deport the three to Abu Dhabi.

    Yet these guys talk about enlightenment, progress and modernization. What a joke. Let Arabia make a transition from 7th century to 7.5th century first.

    I sometimes think that Saudi religious police sit there thinking and saying to each other "what can we do to make Saudis look like idiots as well oh and because we are religious police the rest of the ummah can look stupid as well
