Muslim cleric says Pokemon Go is un-Islamic


#1

A Muslim scholar has suggested that the hugely popular Pokemon go is prohibited by Islam.
Abbas Shuman, who is deputy head of the Al-Azhar Islamic institution, said the game was a ‘harmful mania’ which was similar to drinking alcohol.
Gulf News reports that the Egyptian cleric said the game ‘makes people look like drunkards.’
‘This game makes people look like drunkards in the streets and on the roads while their eyes are glued to the mobile screens leading them to the location of the imaginary Pokemon in the hope of catching it,’ he said.

You ever notice that every once in awhile some inman decides this or that is against islam? From the looks of it all this is just excuses to ply their jihahist ways and do what they do best. Now if only they could manage not to have 90% porn on their computers.

From what little I’ve heard, it’s stupid. It’s caused traffic tie-ups, and one guy in his enthusiasm walked off a cliff.

It’s a geolocation game. You use your phone, it tells you “This pokemon is here” you then walk/drive to “here” tap a button on your phone and “capture” the pokemon. It’s a neat idea, though some people are stupid and get angry about very harmless things because they failed in life. I’d say suicide really is the answer for some people, but since it’s an Imam, that would involve a vest and lots of victims, so I guess not.

I will never get used to having around me those who spend all their time on the phone with talking, texting, or playing games. I go eat at a lunch counter and there will always be someone who will plop their phone down on the counter and some who spend time on the phone between bites. I have a cell phone and it stays off until I need to use it and I can go months without turning it on.

Tell the muzzies to take the fone and put it where the sun don’t shine…
