Saudi Arabia Bans Selfies in Makkah and Medina


In a new and revamped Saudi Arabia, where its no longer unusual to find movie theaters and ‘halal’ night clubs, there has been a new ban imposed.


Turns out you can now no longer take selfies at designated areas. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia only banned taking photos and making videos at Makkah, and Medina.


According to the Jakarta Post, the ban was imposed to prevent people from taking pictures and making videos at the two holiest Muslim sites, Makkah’s ‘Masjid al-Haram‘, known as the Great Mosque of Mecca, and Medina’s ‘Masjid an-Nabawi‘, or ‘The Prophet’s Mosque’.

The Saudi selfie ban is not limited to selfies. All varieties of photographs and videos within the premises of the holy sites are now prohibited.
