Saudi Mufti Forbade "Devil" Animated Series


Leading Muslim clerics of Saudi Arabia stated that the animated series "The 99" are the "work of the devil", and Muslims should not watch it. By the way, these series earned praise of U.S. President Barack Obama.

The TV version of the comic book about superheroes "The 99" is currently being broadcasted by Saudi private satellite channel MBC3, based in Dubai. Saudi clerics have ruled that the animated series are blasphemous because the descriptions of its characters are based on 99 properties ascribed to Allah in the Quran.

"The 99" is the devil's work, which should be condemned and banned out of respect for the name and attributes of Allah,"- the mufti of the kingdom Abdulaziz al-Sheikh said.
