After getting married in his own country an Arab groom returned to Saudi Arabia with his bride and went directly to a shopping mall to stage his wedding party!
Minutes later, the Kingdom’s feared religious police stormed the mall and arrested him. The party at the shopping mall in the eastern town of Dhahran attracted hundreds of shoppers before turning into a dancing and singing contest.
A few minutes later, members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice rushed into the mall and dispersed the guests.
"The bride was allowed to leave but the groom was arrested," Sabq newspaper said, adding that the Commission received instructions from Prince Mohammed bin Fahd, Emir of the Eastern region, to get tough with the groom for breaking the law.
"During interrogation, the groom told Commission members that what he had done was normal and is a common practice in his country."
