Following the laws of the land of the Arab kingdom, a popular Kuwaiti actor was taken into police custody allegedly for taking pictures with women in a mall in the Saudi Capital of Riyadh on Sunday.
The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Haia) booked the actor for interacting with women in a mall and was swiftly forced out of the mall after he encouraged fans of the opposite sex to click pictures with him.
According to Arab News, the actor was taken into the commissionâ€™s center from the mall, by the Haia officials who had instructed the police to take action against him.
It is believed that the actor in question is Abdul Aziz Al Kassar according to a website.
Haia is the official religious police in the Saudi Kingdom which ensures that Sharia Law is followed in the Islamic nation. The force of 3500-4000 is dedicated to ensure that the morality defined by the Saudi state is maintained. They ensure that dress codes are followed in public along with strict segregation of people of opposite sexes.
