Saudi Mufti Says Women Selling Female Accessories Is Crime:Hayat

Employing women in shops selling female accessories is a crime and disrespectful, Al-Hayat reported, citing Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz al-Sheikh.
Al-Sheikh’s remarks came at a sermon yesterday at a mosque in Riyadh, the newspaper reported.
Saudi Arabia’s Labor Ministry issued a directive in July demanding that lingerie and cosmetics stores replace salesmen with women.
