Riyadh(ANN)-The Saudi Shura Council called on the General Presidency of Scholarly Research and Ifta to review fatwas published on its official website in an effort to remove those which are based on the country’s interests which have changed, Saudi local media reported.

Al-Riyadh newspaper reported yesterday that the Shura Council ordered the General Presidency of Scholarly Research and Ifta; the only governmental body authorised to issue fatwas in the Kingdom to archive fatwas which were based on personal judgements or interests that have changed.

The official website of the General Presidency of Scholarly Research and Ifta still contains fatwas which contradict recent changes in the Kingdom. One particular fatwa forbids Muslims from building or running cinemas.

In December, the Saudi General Commission for Audiovisual Media lifted a 35-year ban on cinemas. The commission passed a resolution granting licenses to cinemas, including commercial providers.

The Shura Council appealed to the House of Ifta to benefit from qualified university professors and other scholars to assist the Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta in its work and to develop the website.

  1. Renvoyez-la dans un pays musulman ou africain afin quelle y soit heureuse et soumise. Elle est venue en Finlande pas pour sy assimiler et y apporter quelque chose à ce pays mais pour le coloniser. Cest une ennemie atteinte de kafirophobie génocidaire. Rappelez-vous la tristement célèbre fatwa lancée en 1998 par Osama Ben Laden: « Sur cette base, et conformément à lordre de Dieu, nous émettons la fatwa suivante à tous les musulmans: la décision de tuer les Américains et leurs alliés civils et militaires est un devoir individuel pour tout musulman qui peut le faire dans nimporte quel pays. C’est possible de le faire. » Ces fervents disciples musulmans ne nous font pas cette guerre d’extermination parce que nous sommes nazis ou haïssons les musulmans et les noirs mais parce que nous sommes rationnels, justes et défendons la liberté d’expression et notre culture.
