The Global Center for Female Degradation that is Saudi Arabia may seriously pass a new law that will force women with alluring eyes to completely cover what is left of their faces.

NDTV reports that Saudi Arabia has proposed a law to stop women from showing their “tempting” eyes in public.

Saudi women already have to wear long black cloaks to cover everything but their eyes. Some regions already force women to extend the cloaks to conceal their faces while in public.

Disobeying these laws warrants punishment in the form of fines and public beatings.

According to NDTV, the proposal was made after a member of Saudi Arabia’s Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice was attracted by a woman’s eyes as he walked along the street, an incident that led to a violent fight.

The woman was walking with her husband, who ended up getting stabbed twice in the hand after accusing a man – who he probably didn’t know was an official – of checking out his wife.

This official is a member of the same committee that refused to let female students out of a burning school building in 2002 because they weren’t wearing the correct head coverings at the time.

Fifteen people were killed that day.
