Saudi Public Washrooms and Going Too Far…


I have written previously on the typical condition of public toilets in Saudi Arabia.  And I have also suggested a woman may prefer the open expanse of the desert for relief rather than try to use a public toilet…particularly if one is driving between Riyadh and Makkah for example.  However recently I heard of the alternative taken by one expat woman which I believe has simply gone too far.  During this woman’s travels and seeing the pitiful condition of the public toilets adjacent to the masjid (mosque), instead of attempting to use the toilet, she actually went in to the empty masjid and relieved herself on the carpeted floor of the masjid.  She did this intending to make a point about the conditions of the public toilets and seemed not to comprehend how most individuals would react to her actions.  What is YOUR reaction?
