Banning Page 3 today, dancing kids tomorrow?

'Saudi Arabia's top Islamic cleric has called on parents not to let their little daughters dance in front of men as the Gulf Kingdom's religious police threatened to punish those responsible for allowing little girls to dance during a local festival.

A film showing a group of little Saudi girls dancing on stage in front of men during the annual 'Spring festival' in the central town of Buraidah on Friday triggered criticism by many scholars and viewers after it went viral on social networks and local newspapers.

"Don't teach your little daughters dancing and allow them to dance in front of men. This spoils their life, childhood and dignity," the Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Al Shaikh said on the Saudi 'Al Majd' TV channel.'
