If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what Pokemon Go is please read this.


Well those who have guess what? Pokemon Go is banned in Egypt. A decade old Fatwa has been reaffirmed by Abbas Shuman, deputy head of Al Azhar who branded Pokemon Go as haram!


Pokemon was initially considered haram because it promoted evolution. Not the movie but actually evolution .


It’s now being banned because.

“This game makes people look like drunkards in the streets and on the roads while their eyes are glued to the mobile screens leading them to the location of the imaginary Pokemon in the hope of catching it,”

He went on to add

“Will we find some lunatics walk into mosques, churches, prisons and military units in search of the missing [Pokemon]? Will people neglect their work and earning their living and devote themselves instead to hunting for Pokemon?”

Do you think Pokemon Go is as bad as drinking alcohol?
