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.
