Culture clash: men and women meeting in public

Immoral behavior?

Men and women meeting in public can raise hell in some countries.
A leading Nigerian actress, Rahma Sadau, had to “apologize” in her country: she was seen “hugging and cuddling” pop star Classiq in a video.

Ms. Sadau said sorry to those she upset, but said her actions were “innocuous”.
Hausa films are popular in the mostly Muslim northern Nigeria where it is taboo for men and women to hold hands in public.
The industry, commonly known as Kannywood, has been under fire from conservative Muslim clerics who accuse it of corrupting people’s values.
Obviously we have strongly different views. If those fanatics want to impose Middle-Ages-restrictions, be it, but then: remain in your country and do not try to impose that on us.
