UAE men 'too handsome' for Saudi festival

Three Emirati men were ejected from a festival in Saudi Arabia as they were deemed “too handsome”, leading authorities to fear women could become attracted to them, it has been reported.

According to Arabic language Elaph newspaper, the UAE nationals were taking part in a heritage event in the capital Riyadh on Sunday when they were thrown out by Saudi’s religious police.

Saudi Arabia, a strictly conservative Sunni Muslim society, prohibits women from interacting with unrelated males.

“A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” the newspaper said.

12. I suspect it wasn't about women at all, dollars to donuts they feared that

men would be too attracted to them. I say this after looking at the vid you just posted of these gorgeous extremely sensuous men. I t appears to me that since women can't be seen in public men have fulfilled the role of being senuous eye candy.

14. Or it could be that

the so called "Religious Police" are some rather homely individuals and were jealous of these 3 and didn't want any competition....or maybe they were secretly attracted to them so they had to get the "temptation" away.
