Photos: Selena Gomez heavily criticized for displaying her ankles during visit to Abu Dhabi mosque

I am still confused as to what part of some laws these people don't get!
In Rome, you do like the Romans.....laws and instructions are meant to be followed.....so disappointed in pop starlet Selena Gomez who has been heavily criticised after posting pictures of herself flashing her ankle inside Abu Dhabi's Grand Mosque on her Instragram account.
Rihanna too was scandalous when she visited the Abu Dhabi grand mosque!!
Selena Gomez caused fury online after posting this image on her Instagram account, showing her flashing her ankle while visiting Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
A second picture, showing Gomez and fellow musicians Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cody Simpson and Shay Mitchell smiling and striking poses has also been lambasted.
Mosque visiting rules strictly ban all 'intimate behaviour' including holding hands and kissing, and states that all skirts must be ankle-length. 
Commenting on the picture, Alaa Almitwally said: 'Disrecpectful! It's a religion place not a place to have fun in, so disappointed.'
Meanwhile another user, Ayisha Elturk, said: 'If their intent was to learn about Islam they wouldn't be posing like they were standing outside and amusement park.
'I like Selena Gomez but to have her do something like this makes me no longer a fan.'
However, not everyone was critical of the pictures, with user Lemouza adding: 'They're not disrespectful. Hundreds of thousand of people visit Sheikh Zayed's mosque in Abu Dhabi.
'It's a place of worship, yes I know, but God never forbade the entry of other religions into any mosque. So please respect the fact that they actually want to get to know Islam and its beauty.'
This image showing Selena alongside Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cody Simpson and Shay Mitchell also drew fury from Instagram users, who branded it 'disrespectful'
