As previously noted in our posting titled The Veil Of Islam: Saudis Take A Step Backwards the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice does not permit the congregating of males and females in public if they are not family members.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all the love birds out there, especially those residing in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
