Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Sept.13 (ANI): A Saudi cleric has issued a new fatwa against Arabic satellite TV channels that broadcast programs considered immoral.
The Al Arabiya news channel broadcasted a sound recording of the cleric Saleh Al Luhaidan speaking to a Saudi radio station, Gulf News reports.
Al Luhaidan said that these satellite channels caused the “deviance of thousands of people” as they show “seduction, obscenity and vulgarity.”
“Certainly it is permitted to kill those who encourage corrupt beliefs,” Al Luhaidan said, without specifying any particular channel.(ANI)
