Rabat – A video of Egyptian actresses Sabreen and Suheir Ramzi kissing in public went viral on social media, creating uproar among internet users.
Both wearing hijab, the famous actresses exchanged sensational kisses before the camera in a party reportedly celebrated in Cairo.
Social media users denounced the act, which they deemed a “disrespect to the Muslim headscarves they were wearing” and an attack on Egyptian morals.
In a statement, Sabreen said that she was surprised that “this simple kiss” caused so much controversy. “There is a familial relationship between me and Suheir Ramzy.
We met at an artistic event and kissed one another, what is strange in this?” Sabreen added.
Last week, two Moroccan gays were arrested for publicly kissing in front of the Hassan tower in Rabat, and were charged with “homosexuality” and “breach of public decency.”
