By Al Arabiya

Sheikh Dr. Abdullah bin Suleiman al-Manee, member of the Board of Senior Ulama and Adviser to the Royal Court, told Saudi university students in Malaysia that they are allowed to visit worship places of other religions and encouraged them to heavy usage of the social media, Al Riyadh newspaper reported online on Monday.

Dr. Abdullah explained to the recipients of H.H. the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques foreign scholarship program, that he doesn’t object visiting worship places of non-muslims and watch their rituals, even if they have to pay entrance fees, as this will strengthen the muslim’s attachment to his religion and shows the ignorance of the followers of other religions. more at http://english.alarabiya.net/articles/2012/10/08/242630.html
