Saudi cleric comes up with new absurd ban, says taking selfies with cats is prohibited
Sheikh Saleh Bin Fawzan Al-Fazwan issued the decree after being told about ‘a new trend of animal lovers posing for pictures with their pets’.
Sheikh Saleh is of the view that taking pictures is prohibited."Taking pictures is prohibited if not for a necessity. Not with cats, not with dogs, not with wolves, not with anything," he said.
This is not the first time a Saudi cleric has come up with a strikingly odd decree. Earlier this year, the Saudi grand mufti said the game of chess was forbidden because it encouraged gambling. The Pokemon card game was also banned owing to the Jewish star of David on it.
Some hardliners in Saudi Arabia claim that photography is completely banned in Islam.
