Hai'a staffer beaten by Saudi woman!!!

Fresh from the oven: A Saudi woman actually punched a Hai'a (Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice) official. Read the full story.

My inital reaction to this was: NO WAY!!!

2nd reaction: You got guts girl (with a wink)!

3rd reaction: Shoot! Whats going to happen to her???

No points for guessing that this wasn't the best news piece I've read this morning. It certainly is petrifying.


  1. You know Hai'a is not all bad. There are officials who have done outstanding work at the Hai'a. Their main focus is really great stuff like busting human trafficking networks,Prostitution,illegal Manufacturing of Alcohol, blackmail and other illegal matters. Unfortunately we the public only deal with the "cover your hair, is that your husband, mall Roaming Hai'a". Their existence-does in my opinion-belittle the work of other REAL HARD WORKING hai'a agents.

  2. Sarah I completely agree with what you're saying about the right kinda Hai'a agents. Unfortunately the public gets to see only what Hai'a actually shows us on a daily basis (ref to head covering, is she your wife, go to prayer etc..) Hai'a actually needs to promote itself as a GUIDE and not as a Islamic-inflicting body. I think they need the help of a branding and marketing agency :)
