Al-Ra'is (The Boss)

The Boss was Bahrain's answer to Big Brother until it was cancelled due to protests by "women's groups."

Following Friday's demonstration, several Bahraini women's groups protested against the show outside the information ministry on Saturday.

"I have watched the show and it must be stopped," said 34-year-old teacher Shahnaz Rabi'i, who helped organise the demonstration. "Our religion has strong values which say boys and girls should not mix together," said Ms Rabi'i. "This programme is a threat to Islam. This is entertainment for animals."
