Egyptian Woman Arrested And Charged With 'Inciting Debauchery' For Belly Dancing

Egyptian Woman Arrested And Charged With “Inciting Debauchery” For Belly Dancing…

So risqué! No, not really.

Via ToI:

Egyptian authorities have arrested a woman who danced in a racy music video that went viral on the internet and referred her to misdemeanor court for “inciting debauchery.

 

The clip, a low-budget production entitled “Hands Off,” or “Sib Eddi” in Egyptian Arabic, contains no nudity but plenty of scantily clad booty-shaking by the woman, Reda el-Fouly, who dances to the voice of a singer called Mena.

 

Ahmed Bakly of the Giza prosecution said in a statement that the clip “disrupted morality.” He also ordered the arrest of Wael Elsedeki, whom he described as el-Fouly’s boyfriend who had left the country for Tunisia after some social media users called the video scandalous, as well as a third person involved in the video.

 

Egypt is one of several Islamic countries that enforce modest-dress laws in the Middle East. Last year, Qatar’s state-run Islamic Culture Center launched the “Reflect your Respect” campaign to encourage tourists to adhere to the country’s dress codes and to dress modestly.
