Saudi men removed for protesting against woman’s poem...

Two Saudi men who opposed the participation of a woman poet in a public literary meeting were removed from the hall by security officers.

A video clip circulated on social media showed how a man stood up during the meeting held on the sideline of the book fair held in the Red Sea city of Jeddah to protest against allowing Ashjan Al Hindi, a Saudi poet, to recite a poem in the hall.

He argued that no woman should be allowed to speak out and address the men who were sitting in the hall.

However, the officer told him calmly that he could lodge a protest after the meeting and mention whatever he wanted. The man acquiesced and left the hall, Saudi news site Al Marsad reported on Sunday. More + video...
