In Saudi Arabia women were first allowed to come to the stadium

The speech had comments that diminished "human value", a spokesperson for the governor of Asir said, adding that Saad Al-Hijri is now banned from preaching, leading prayers or any other religious activity.

Saad al-Hijri from the Asir province was giving a lecture in the city of Khamis Mushait, located in the southwest of the country, when he said women should not be allowed to drive.

Saudi Arabia is celebrating its National Day with an array of family-friendly festivities, including allowing women to enter the main stadium in the capital, Riyadh, for the first time, to see a performance recounting the country's founding 87 years ago.

Women in the ultra-conservative Gulf kingdom, among many other things, need a male guardian or a chauffeur in order to travel in a auto.

Well, Hajari could not pull the breaks at just that as he further explained that when women go shopping, they lose another half of their existing "half brain" and are left with only a quarter.

The cleric was also quoted in a report by Saudi daily Sabq, as saying: "It is not their fault, but women lack intellect do they not? It would not. So how can it give it to a woman when she has only half?"

Twitter users shared the video, many criticising it and making jokes about his remarks, under the Arabic hashtag "Al-Hijri-women-quarter-brain". So how would you give one to a woman when she has half an intellect?

Hijri's suspension, ordered by the provincial governor, was aimed at preventing the spread of views that spark controversy and do not serve the national interest, the provincial spokesman said.

"Anyone using preaching platforms to undermine those values will be banned in future".

The Saudi government's modernising reforms, backed by Saudi Arabia's business class, have sparked tensions with influential clerics upon whose support the ruling family relies.

As a swell of enthusiastic women cheering swept through the stadium, with a few wearing colorful wigs on top of their veils, some Saudi men on social media lauded their participation as a "historic" moment.
