Saudi Arabia’s grand Mufthi Sheikh Abulaziz Al Sheikh has defended a ban on driving by females in the kingdom of Saudi Arabiya, saying it exposes women to “evil.”

In an interview with the satellite channel al-Majd Mufthi said that driving “is a dangerous matter” for women because it exposes them to evil.

The kingdom’s highest religious authority Mufthi also said that men with “weak spirits” who are “obsessed with women” could cause harm to women drivers.

Mufthi also noted that family members of female drivers would not know about the whereabouts of women if the ban on driving for women is lifted.
