Saudi Arabia: Ban of popular Islamic cartoon
Saudi Arabia has officially banned the internationally popular cartoon featuring Islamic heroes, The 99.
The comic book series based on characters that each personify one of the 99 qualities that the Koran attributes to God has for years been successful, particularly in the Gulf, and has received the backing of Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Nasar Al Sabah and US President Barack Obama.
However, the government council General Presidency of Scholarly Research and Fatwa has banned the show, saying the 99 attributes of Allah should not be personified.
