Newsline: Saudi Arabia’s Embassy in Australia urges Saudis not to wear national dress

The Saudi Embassy in Australia has advised all Saudi scholarship students and their families in the country to refrain from wearing the thobe or the national dress in public places. The warning comes amid preparations for Eid Al-Fitr celebrations as authorities are keen to ensure the safety of Saudis from miscreants, who may find it easy from the clothing to identify and target them. The embassy also advised the citizens to avoid any discussions, heated arguments and unsafe places. “These warnings aim to protect the safety and security of our citizens in Australia,” said Ali Al-Haji, head of the media department at the embassy.
