Muslim Cleric Wants FIFA To Ban Christian Football Players

Mon May 15, 2017 2:41 am

Apparently this Muslim cleric is not comfortable seeing christian players thanking and praising their God after scoring a goal. He wants FIFA to stop football players from making the symbol of the cross on their chest. Anyway the religion professor got served fairly on social media even his own Muslim followers were against 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.

Alarefe wrote: ‘I’ve seen video clips of athletes, soccer players running, shooting and when they win they make the symbol of the cross on their chests and my question is if FIFA’s rules forbid this.’

While people form all religious backgrounds, including Christianity and Islam responded to his views, many condemned the cleric, saying it incited division.

Sultan Alhusni replied mentioning an Egyptian footballer currently playing for Italian club Roma, and said: ‘I can’t lie. Mohamed Salah and others kneel to pray when they score a goal and no one punishes them. Leave the sport to those who deal with it.’
