Saudi "vice and virtue" chief sacked for declaring gender mixing is not against Islam..

Makkah chief of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Haia) Sheikh Ahmad Al-Ghamdi has been sacked and on Saturday was replaced by Sheikh Abdullah Al-Romaidan.

The members of the Haia office learned about the change only when the new chairman came to the office as the new chief, according to reliable sources.

Al-Ghamdi said he received the dismissal order by telephone from an official of the Haia head office in Riyadh.

He said he did not know why he was harassed by dismissal orders and reports of suspension and arrest over the past year.

Al-Ghamdi triggered a public outcry in the conservative Saudi society when he wrote a research paper on the hotly debated issue of gender mixing. He said that it is not against Islam for men and women to mix. More...
