Saudi Police Arrest ‘Everybody Involved’ In ‘Gay Wedding’

Saudi police arrested everyone involved in a ‘gay wedding’ near the holy city of Mecca.

The video footage shows two men walking side-by-side while confetti is sprayed over their heads and music is played in the background went viral when it was uploaded last week.

The duo can be seen proceeding down what appears to be an aisle while one of the men wears what looks like a wedding veil.

Finally, Saudi police have announced that they have arrested those involved in the supposed wedding after a man attending a festival at a resort near Mecca reported the incident.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Mecca Police explained: ‘The man said people attending the event were surprised when a few young men entered the place and tried to perform a “gay wedding scene”.’

The statement, translated from Arabic by Step Feed, said one of the men in the ceremony was a ‘crossdresser’.

It went on: ‘After the crossdresser and other people involved in the incident were identified, they were all arrested and their case will now be referred to the prosecution.’

Homosexuality is punishable by severe punishment – ranging from lashings to death – in Saudi Arabia.

It is outlawed on Islamic grounds, as in many other countries in the Middle East and wider Muslim world.

In the wake of the video’s publication, many outraged Muslims took to social media to express their frustration.

One wrote on Twitter: ‘In the purest spot on earth… Two homosexuals marry in Saudi Arabia,’ according to Al-Araby.

Another user blamed the ‘phenomenon’ of homosexuality on foreigners.

Some people praised the country’s new leader, Mohammed bin Salman (pictured), for creating a more tolerant society. He has already announced that women will be able to drive in Saudi Arabia from June this year

The furious poster wrote: ‘Since 2013, the phenomenon of homosexuality has been increasing in Mecca, and perhaps the response for respectable people is to purge Mecca of this corruption, which stems mainly from foreigners.’

But others praised the country’s new leader, Mohammed bin Salman, for creating a more tolerant society.

He has already announced that women will be able to drive in Saudi Arabia from June this year.

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
