First Mixed Gender University in Saudi Arabia

First Mixed Gender University in Saudi Arabia

On 1 November, a forum participant posted to a jihadist website several links to a 17-minute 13-second audio statement by Shaykh Ibrahim al-Rubaysh, entitled “The Mask Fell.” In the audio statement, Al-Rubaysh criticizes the Saudi regime for inaugurating the first mixed-gender university in Saudi Arabia. Al-Rubaysh asserts that the secularists, by opening this university, have achieved a great victory, but he hopes that “this victory will be just like the United States victory in Iraq, which was followed by its defeat and economic collapse.” Al-Rubaysh criticizes the Saudi scholars who issued fatwas to support the opening of the university. The statement is produced by the Al-Malahim Media Establishment and published by the Al-Fajr Media Center.
