Monday, 14 January 2013

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. APMR's Secretariat General informs that according to the Special Dispatch No.5129, dated 10 January 2013 and issued by MEMRI, Sheikh Suleiman Al-'Alwan said that footballers are infidels because football is a Masonic game in itself.

He issued a fatwa (religious opinion concerning Islamic law topics) in which he declared footballers as infidels. "Soccer is a Masonic game meant to distance Muslims from their religion and faith, and most of the public that follows [soccer games] is loyal to the infidels," said the Saudi sheikh.
