Sheikh Abdullah al-Mutlaq, a member of the Saudi Committee of Senior Scholars, said that chatting online through social networks falls under the forbidden khulwa“(Reported Al Arabia).

Sheikh al-Mutlaq urged women to avoid chatting with men because the devil will be present between the two of them.
This fatwa is one of many that consider that chatting between men and women is haram. Islamic Saudi clerics are worried that any correspondence over the internet may lead to seduction.

Every now and then, a Saudi cleric amazes us with a new fatwa. As stupid and unacceptable these fatawa are, I cannot but be stunned by the great amount of time some members of the Saudi committee are sacrificing to develop the Islamic Sharia. As if banning a woman from driving, forcing her to wear Hijab, forbidding any unrelated/unmarried man or woman to be alone in public, and other unjustified laws that violate the basics rights of any human being are not enough.

"Whenever a man is alone with a woman the Devil makes a third."
لَا يَخْلُوَنَّ رَجُلٌ بِامْرَأَةٍ ، لَيْسَ مِنْهَا بِسَبِيلٍ ، فَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ ثَالِثُهُمَا

The reactions of Saudi internet users regarding Sheikh al-Multaq’s statement were very different and reflected the raising new spirit in the kingdom. Although some admired him and agreed on this statement, others mocked him and asked: “why they just ban women altogether?” (Reported Al Arabia).

Relying on people’s trust and their unquestionable faith, religious figures have been ruling Saudi Arabs and sequestering them between robust walls of unbreakable rules. Despite all the efforts to maintain these walls firm and abiding, they will not eternally resist the wind of change.
