In Saudi Arabia, women are banned from driving cars. That’s why a group of activists have launched a campaign that encourages women to defy the ban on driving.
Today, the official website of the October 26th Women Driving Campaign, oct26driving.org, has been hacked.
“Red Yellow Green :) Drop the leadership of Saudi women .. Accident,” the hacker wrote on the defaced website.
Even U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton supports the campaign, but Saudi authorities have issued a warning saying that the country’s laws prohibit any action that disturbs social peace. The Interior Ministry, cited by albawaba, noted that the law would be enforced.
The statement from the ministry came after several clerics and religious scholars accused the government of not doing anything to stop the campaign.
At the time of writing, the October 26th Women Driving Campaign Website is still defaced.
