Saudi Arabia police raided a theater performance where school children had dressed up as the Smurf’s because the music was ‘un-Islamic’.
The raid happened in the city of Taif after complaints about the religious music that was being played to accompany the performance by the kids aged between five and nine.
The anti-Smurf action by the police took place in front of a performance in front of around 2000 primary school children.
It said that the police raid had not gone down well with the audience who had protested loudly. Although not illegal to play music in public many Saudis regard it as unIslamic.
