Saudi grand mufti against Twitter as source of all evil and lies [AN]


On his ‘fatwa’ show, Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority, comes out against the microblogging site, blaming it for evil as well as moral and social devastation. Users are divided: some agree with the sheikh; others comment his views with sarcasm. In Saudi Arabia, Twitter has the highest number of active users.



Bah. Twitter may be a conduit of evil and lies, but the source is going to be a human being.


He has a show called fatwa? That’s hilarious!


They probably get better viewership than calling it Islamic law TV or Law & Order: Special orders unit.


President Obama will have to issue a firmly worded Tweet on this! :slight_smile:
