Model Faces Judicial Probe After Posting Video In Mini Skirt In Birthplace Of Wahhabism

Saudi Arabian authorities are investigating a video of a woman publicly wearing a crop top and mini skirt in the country’s most conservative region.

The model, Khulood, posted a video of herself on Snapchat walking around a historic fort in Ushayqir, which is in the Najd province of Saudi Arabia. This is the region where Wahhabism originated.

In perhaps the most conservative Middle Eastern country, women are not allowed to wearing anything but abayas in public or a full-faced niqab. While reporting the story, Saudi Arabian media blurred out Khulood’s midriff and legs.

Of course, the video led to a variety of comments online – some for, some against. Some said that she should abide by the laws of the country, while others applauded her for her bravery.
