The real reason Saudi Arabia is banning chess



Saudi Arabia has banned chess because it apparently violates Islamic law.

Saudi Arabia’s top cleric has declared the playing of chess “forbidden,” calling it a waste of time and money that creates hatred between players.

In his statement on the show, the grand mufti equated chess with gambling, which is forbidden in Islam.

“It makes the rich man poor, and makes the poor man rich,” he said. “It causes hostility and wastes time where it should not be spent.”

But I think the real reason for the ban is something different. Just look at a chess board. What do you see?

A King, obviously a man, and a Queen, obviously a woman--surrounded by bishops, unrelated men! That's forbidden in Saudi society!

I think the mixing of these mix gendered chess pieces is the real reason for the ban. Also, the pieces for the Knights are represented by horses. Perhaps there is also a fear that unrestricted mixing of horses and men could lead to some funny business too.

Perhaps they will lift the ban when Chess is changed so that all the pieces are of the same gender, and the horse pieces are fitted with chastity belts.

Boy happily cuts off own hand for offending Prophet Mohammad


Sometimes polling people by a show of hands can be dangerous thing, at least in Pakistan. In one Mosque an Imam wanted to know which of his congregants did not love the Prophet Mohammad. He asked for a show of hands. Unfortunately, a boy in the audience misheard and thought he was asking for a show of hands for people who did love the Prophet Mohammad, so he raised his hand.
