Pokemon Go is the hottest game these days for both android and iOS but, some territories of different countries have banned Pokemon Go. Some think this game is not safe to play, some think its '' Haram '' and against Islamic law – as far as the safety of Pokemon Go is concerned, it's pretty much unsafe to play because your children don't even know where they are going? If they are on road side trying to pass the road to catch a Pokemon instead of watching both sides on the road, they could get hit by a car or bus. There are different countries where Pokemon go is banned, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Russia etc.

1. Saudi Arabia

Pokemon go became the most popular game in the Middle east – everybody is playing Pokemon go outside their houses, workplaces even hospitals. In the religious and political chambers of Saudi government everybody took action against Pokemon go and announced a '' fatwa '' on Pokemon go and declared it as '' Haram '' as some of you may know that in 2001, Saudi Arabian government banned poke cards and gave message to parents to stop their children from playing any game from pokemon.
Saudi Arabia is an Islamic country and any anti-Islamic act is tolerated very badly in Saudi Arabia even though you can get a death penalty on any anti-Islamic behaviour or act.If you are living in Saudi Arabia and download Pokemon go from any pirated store, beware of Saudi religious police as they keep patrolling in streets of some famous places in Saudi Arabia.
