Saudis may force women to cover seductive eyes
Until now, eye exposure was still an option for Saudi 'niqab'd' women. This may no longer be so as the authorities clamp down on 'seductive' eyes.
Saudi officials say they are considering a law that will force women with attractive eyes to cover their faces completely in public places in the [Persian], or Arabian if you prefer, Gulf kingdom.
Sheikh Motlab al Nabet, a spokesperson for Saudi Arabia's Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, said the proposal for the law has already been undergoing formal discussions.
The committee says the law will authorize the government to prevent women from revealing “tempting” eyes in public,
Saudi women are deprived of a choice in marriage, divorce and child custody. The females are dictated to and guarded by male relatives and cannot travel without the consent of a male guardian.
They are also barred from participating in municipal elections, which form the kingdom's only public electoral event.
