A picture of the Saudi Arabian religious police stopping women in a public park from using the swings has gone viral in the Kingdom. News outlets and social media, abuzz with the story, have garnered opinions that both support and oppose the actions of the police (who are officially titled the "Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice").

Akhbaar24 news, who originally reported the story, said those who supported the actions of the police said "the swing could tempt passers-by to harass or attack them."
