Female TV Presenter Flees Saudi Arabia

16

A female television personality in Saudi Arabia suffered so much backlash for the clothes she wore during her most recent on-the-job news presentation, she was forced to flee the country.

The woman, Shereen Al-Rifaie, had gone on air wearing clothing that, by Western stands, was completely conservative. But by strict sharia standards, she was out of Islam line.

The outfit Ms Al-Rifaie’s wore during the news report was deemed ‘indecent’ by the Saudi General Commission for Audiovisual Media.

Angry callers flooded the station manager, and she was forced off air. The backlash continued, and she was finally compelled to leave the country.

From the Daily Mail:

A Saudi Arabian TV presenter has fled the country after an investigation was launched into claims she had violated the kingdom’s dress code for women.

Shereen Al-Rifaie is accused of recording a segment on women finally being allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia in an outfit deemed ‘indecent’ by the Saudi General Commission for Audiovisual Media.

The presenter wore a white abaya – a traditional Muslim robe-like dress – which opened to reveal white trousers and a top underneath in the TV segment.

Her hair was somewhat covered by a loose white scarf, but her dark locks could be seen by her hairline and flowing down her back.

She was reporting on the lifting of the longstanding ban on women driving in the conservative Muslim kingdom, which took place this month.

In a Twitter post, the Commission said they had launched an investigation after the video clip of Ms Al-Rifaie had been shared on social media.

They said the clip of her news report had shown her ‘wearing indecent clothes, in violation of regulations and instructions.

As the news of the investigation broke, Ms Al-Rifaie posted a photo of a plane ticket and her passport on Snapchat, local news website ajel.sa reports, indicating that she had left the country.

She posted a picture of a plane ticket and her passport on Snapchat after news broke of the investigation.

Saudi Arabia has a legally imposed dress code, and all women, foreign and local, are required wear an abaya in public.

Muslim women must also wear a headscarf – or hijab – to cover their hair, but foreigners are not legally required to do so.

While it is not ordered by the state, many Saudi women also choose to cover their face with a burqa or niqab.
