The wife of the pimped husband informed the court that her husband was never loyal to her and had affairs with other women. He used to beat her and force her to sleep with other men. The guilty husband was running a prostitution ring while hiring out his wife for sex on social media. He was accused of keeping all the cash for himself while making her wife starve to death. Ruthless, husband breaking all the boundaries turned the wife into a pimp. The Commission of the promotion of virtue and prevention of Vice also investigated the case of the wife. The pimped husband was also taken to task by the Gulf Kingdom religion police.
According to a recent survey, the curb of prostitution is spreading widely in Saudi Arabia. Most of the people involved in this nasty business are foreigners coming from different countries. Saudi Arabia is known as a state that follows the Islamic code of conduct in the strictest manner. The Saudi men are very much concerned about their women. They want their wives to cover themselves in a veil and do not leave the house without their consent. Alcohol is strictly banned in the Kingdom.
The wife became the victim of severe torture done by her husband as she reported to the newspaper. The husband invited different men usually his friends and forced her to take them to bed. She was helpless and had no access to communicate her plea to anyone. He never allowed meeting any of the relatives or friends. The husband was unemployed and was present at home all the time. He communicated with the potential clients through text messages and emails and fixed the deals.[irp]
After many unsuccessful attempts, the woman went to the police station and filed a FIR against the husband. Soon after the woman’s hearing at the court, she has been sent to a local home care center. The court accepted the pleas of the woman as she demanded a divorce from her husband. Despite strict rules and penalties against prostitution, the prostitution rate is gaining momentum and government is planning to deport all foreign prostitutes residing in the Kingdom.
