ISNA on Saturday broadcasted coverage of the response of Ayatollah Lotfollah Safi-Golpaygani, a senior cleric, to the question about Facebook and Iranian membership in the social networking service.
"Basically, going to any website which propagates immoralities and could weaken the religious belief is un-Islamic and not allowed, and membership in it is therefore haram (a sin)," the Ayatollah replied.According to official figures released last October, 17 million Iranians have a Facebook account.
"Only the use of websites propagating religious criteria and not leading to any kind of ethical immoralities is of no problem," he added.
There are many Fatwas given by many Islamic Scholars which are either ridiculed or not followed. These so called Scholars should not issue any Fatwas and let people live their lives the way they want to.
