Inappropriately dressed Woman causes stir in Makkah – Saudi Arabia


In a bizarre incident unprecedented in Saudi Arabia, a woman showed up to perform the holy pilgrimage of Umrah dressed in the traditional garb for men. Men are not allowed to wear anything woven, they suffice with two white sheets, one wrapped around their waist, the other draped over their shoulders. Women can dress as they want, ensuring they cover themselves modestly. The young lady caused quite a stir amongst the people, security forces had to intervene to cover her up. She claims she did not know it was a male only dressing. Question is, didn’t anyone around her know? Family, friends? Ignorance of the law is a valid excuse, in some communities, right?
