Saudi cleric backs gender segregation with ‘fatwa’

RIYADH: A prominent Saudi cleric Shaikh Abdul-Rahman al-Barrak has issued a ‘fatwa’ calling for opponents of the kingdom’s strict segregation of men and women to be put to death if they refuse to abandon their ideas.

Barrak said the mixing of genders at the workplace or in education “as advocated by modernisers” is prohibited because it allows “sight of what is forbidden and forbidden talk between men and women”. reuters
