Saudi Islamic cleric Sheikh Sa’d Al-Ateeq said in his fatwa show on the Saudi Ahwaz TV channel that when people post pictures of themselves and their children on social media platforms such as Snapchat,Twitter,Facebook etc they risk becoming afflicted with life threatening diseases, including cancer. Sheikh Al-Ateeq warned that people might print these pictures and apply sorcery to them, causing those photographed to fall ill.
Despite having no evidence to back up his theory other than claiming to see it with his own eyes . The sad thing is that in Saudi Arabia where they practice the most extreme version of Islam. The majority of those Muslims tuning into the TV show will actually believe the stuff that Sheikh Sa’d Al-Ateeq is spewing out.
