Riyadh, Rajab 10, 1439, Mar 27, 2018, SPA -- The General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars has warned of TV Channels that spread misguidance and sedition and have become a mouthpiece of terrorist groups, especially Qatar's Al Jazeera TV channel that provides viewers with false data regarding the nation's causes and problems, and keeps on making and telling lies as well as hosting people with no allegiance where they promote what serves the policy of their funders so as to tear down Arab countries, tamper, divide its unity and spread sedition.
In its statement issued today, the Council said that history will not forget that Qatari Al Jazeera was and is still a platform for leaders of terrorism, as it used exclusively to broadcast speeches of Osama bin Laden, the leader of the terrorist Al-Qaeda and his successors in addition to the speeches of terrorists who have took up arms in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia before, and it is now practicing the same role in spreading the speeches of the leader of Al-Houthi terrorist militias in coordination with him in a clear targeting of the security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Muslims' sacred sites, as this terrorist group has targeted the holy Makkah before.
In this context, the General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars confirmed that the Kingdom's scholars had for years warned of this channel and stated that it is playing a suspicious role in provoking sedition and tearing apart countries, as stated by His Eminence the Grand Mufti of the Kingdom Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al Al-Sheikh and Sheikh Saleh bin Fawzan Al-Fawzan, member of the Council of Senior Scholars.
