The religious police of Saudi Arabia raided a party at a famous hotel where approximately 100 girls participated in the most beautiful ‘tomboy’ contest.
‘Tomboy’ is usually used to refer to a girl who exhibits characteristics or behaviour considered typical of a boy including wearing masculine clothing and engaging in games and activities that are physical in nature.
Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice members, accompanied by the police, raided the party at a famous hotel in the Eastern Province of Al Khobar and arrested almost all of the participants, including a man and woman who organised the party.
A large quantity of energy drinks, ‘Satanist’ objects and a crown to be awarded to the winner in the contest were also seized by the Police, reported Arabic daily Sabq.
The party was organised under the pretext of a graduation ceremony. Most of the girls who attended were later handed over to their respective parents.
