Coming Soon: Female Religious Police

There is a pressing need to employ Saudi women in the areas of awareness and guidance, said Sheikh Abdul Latif Aal Alsheikh, President of the Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Hai’a).

Alsheikh told Okaz/Saudi Gazette in an exclusive interview that in the light of this need he hoped a recruitment drive would take place soon. The women will work under the supervision of an independent women’s department as is usually the case with government agencies, he added.

Is this part of the reforms?
