    Mohammad bin Salman was designated as Saudi Arabia's new crown prince in June 2017. Since then, he has rapidly consolidated power and led Saudi Arabia towards some progressive reforms, such as granting women the right to drive. He also has plans to privatize certain segments of the economy, with the goal of reducing Saudi Arabia's economic dependency on oil. These changes, along with a suppression of Saudi Arabia's religious Right, could potentially begin to destabilize one of the Middle East's most powerful nations.

    Crown Prince MBS is decisive , if he changed the Clothes Coloring that people wear in Saudi Arabia that would take away a whole lot of power from hardline clerics ! Eg the Burkha need not be of black colour only( OK for middle ages i.e 900AD to 1600AD) due to lack of Coloring agent in mass quantities .After all We have a Whole Range of Colours in this World not just Black & White!
