Saudi Muslim cleric urges FIFA to ban christian players from making Christian signs on the pitch


    Mohammed Alarefe, a Saudi Muslim cleric and professor of religion at
    King Saud University in Riyadh has urged world football’s governing
    body, FIFA to ban Christian players from making the sign of the cross
    and other Christian signs after scoring.

    He posted the controversial call on Twitter to his
    17.4million followers, but he was quickly flooded with messages
    disagreeing with him.

    A number of people pointed out to the Muslim scholar that a huge amount
    of players kneel on the ground and kiss the floor in celebration of a
    goal, mimicking the Islamic prayer.
