Abdullah Al-Anzi, the spokesman of the Ministry of Islamic Affairs of Saudi Arabia, has said that the decision to stop recording the images and voices of worshipers in mosques, uploading or publishing them on social media or any communication site is a violation of the protection of Islam and exploitation of pulpits. The state is playing its role to save it.
Al-Arabiya, referring to a private TV channel, said that the purpose of this decision is to prevent unnecessary dissemination of messages.
It is our goal to prevent all types of false messages, whether these messages are unintentional or intentional.
Al-Anzi explained that the decision of the ministry to ban the filming of mosques was not issued due to lack of trust in any imam or preacher.
However, it falls within the scope of caution against any serious wrongdoing affecting Muslims.
He said that such content is published on some websites. It cannot be controlled.
This decision comes within the framework of the ministry’s message to protect the religion of Allah and its role in spreading moderation and moderation.
