History has been a testament to the passing of time that some men just cannot take the success of a woman sportingly. So much for being strong and macho.

Anyhow, you all must know that Saudi Arabia recently made a historical move after they allowed their women to exercise their right to drive. These women touched new highs and were celebrating their new found freedom, when some men decided to ruin it for them.

A woman in Saudi was minding her own business and was driving when she was threatened and harassed by young men who set her car on fire. Salma al Shari, the victim told Okaz newspaper that she began driving as soon as the ban was lifted last month. With her skill, she drove around her elderly parents and helped them run errands.

But the sight of a woman living the way she wants to, disturbed some men, including those who threatened her. They asked her to stop driving because it was ‘against the will of God’ she narrated.

Police said in a statement, that the fire is being treated as arson and they are searching for the suspects.

While a lot of men have been extremely supportive of it, it’s sad and disturbing to see some of them go to such lengths just because they cannot digest change. ( Trending )
