Saudi Grand Mufti declares contact with foreign media 'haram'
The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia has issued a religious edict prohibiting contact and cooperation with the foreign media seeking to "spread chaos and strife in the Muslim world".
The Express Tribune quoted Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh, as saying that people should not divulge their country's secrets to foreign media outlets as these media groups are only concerned with creating a divide among the people.
The Grand Mufti warned against shielding or giving refuge to criminals.
"A believer has to help in keeping security, that of his nation and community, and protecting his religion," he said.
