The edict issued by the Permanent Committee for Edicts (Fatwa), and Saudi Arabia’s senior cleric Saleh Al Fawzan that exposing the face of a woman is a strict pudenda like exposing her private parts, has sparked a wave of resentment and furor in social media, TV channels and among muslims.
He said a woman must cover her face as a beautiful woman is distinguished from the ugly one by her face. He added, “Poets always compose poems on the faces of women,” he said.
“A muslim woman must hide her face from men, and she should not consider the controversies of the skeptics , and turn a deaf eye to them saying there is a difference between the Muslim scholars, and a man has the right to divorce his wife, if she refuses to veil her face”, he noted.
