Pop Star Rihanna kicked out of Mosque


[ASSOCIATED PRESS]Overseers of Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque say they asked pop star Rihanna to leave the compound after she posed for photographs considered to be at odds with the “sanctity” of the site.article-0-18D8A95B00000578-188_634x862

Rihanna hasn’t publicly responded to the actions by staff at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Her show took place on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.

Photos posted on various websites show the singer posing on white marble, dressed fully in black, with her hair covered according to the mosque’s guidelines.

The mosque statement, published Monday in local newspapers, said Rihanna was in an area normally off limits for visitors. It says the fashion-style photo session violated rules on the “status and sanctity of the mosque.”

  1. So what? She was insulting the mosque. A mosque’s not a place for photography. There are some manners and etiquette of every man and place. If she don’t know how to behave in a church, mosque, temple or synagogue then she mustn’t enter any of’em.

  2. Surj, re-read :
