    Saudi: possible charges for dancing at B-day party

    Relating to "FlyFree's" apt post in the thread in 'Speakers Corner' we are hearing more and more stories of this out of KSA. There seems to be a gap between the young and the conservative Wahabbis. I expect more and more stories like this to come.

    REPORT: SAUDI MEN DETAINED FOR DANCING AT BIRTHDAY PARTY

    BY ABDULLAH AL-SHIHRI AND AYA BATRAWY


    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- Saudi Arabia's morality police detained a group of young men for dancing at a birthday party and referred them to prosecutors, according to a state-linked media report.

    The news website Ayn al-Youm reported Saturday that the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice raided a private property in the city of Buraydah, arresting the men inside for "loud music and inappropriate dancing."

    Buraydah is the provincial capital of Saudi Arabia's Qassim province, which is home to some of the kingdom's most conservative clerics, who practice a strict interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism.

    An unnamed official told the website that when members of the morality police raided the private property, they found the young men in "a comprising situation in their dance and shameful movements." The official said there was also a cake and candles to celebrate one of the men's birthdays.

    No details were released about how many men were arrested or their ages. The official did, however, say that the young men's hairstyles and dress were not traditional, and urged parents to monitor this kind of behavior "because it can lead to immorality and even homosexuality."

    This behavior is acceptable in the many hundreds of private compounds. Why would they do it somewhere is earshot of the religious police?

    Plenty of people in the West would cheer the Saudi religious police on, Blue might be along shortly to prove me right.

    And you can get arrested for blaring music too loud just about anywhere.
