 Saudi religious police outlaws public displays

SAUDI RELIGIOUS POLICE OUTLAW PUBLIC DISPLAYS OF NON-MUSLIM FAITH

A senior Saudi cleric says Saudi Arabia does not stop non-Muslims from practicing their religion, but will never allow public displays of their faith.
The chief of the powerful religious police told a newspaper that his group does not detain or punish non-Muslims for practicing their religion.
He said that while members of the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice—the formal name for the religious police—do not harass or force non-Muslims to convert, “We will not allow them to publicly practice their religion in this country.”
Although he did not mention it specifically, his comments appeared to come in response to a U.S. State Department report that accused Saudi Arabia of “particularly severe violations” of religious freedom.
The religious police are charged with ensuring that women are covered in black robes outside their homes, the sexes do not mix in public, shops close five times a day for prayers, and men go to mosques for prayers.
