“Even though I didn’t get their point I don’t think such games are prohibited in the area. People are allowed to play games on their mobile phones and take photos of the Holy Mosque”

“We always used to play in the Holy Mosque’s outdoor areas, you also did too.”

“Let them play, it’s better than talking behind people’s back”
