Saudi Arabia and GCC warns Netflix of violating Islamic values and laws

Netflix has been cautioned by Saudi Arabia and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to delete all content that they consider to be against Islamic and social norms and principles.

According to Saudi media, in a statement, media watchdogs from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Cooperation Council cautioned that recent content, especially those intended for minors, violated laws.

Saudi state television aired blurred clips of the Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous animation series, in which two adolescent females declare their love for one another and have a kiss.

The program by Al Ekhbariya TV included clips from the contentious French film Cuties and a caption accusing Netflix of serving as a cinematic cover for immoral themes that jeopardize the healthy development of youngsters.

According to a joint statement from the Saudi General Commission for Audiovisual Media and the GCC Committee of Electronic Media Officials, Netflix was contacted to remove this content, including content directed at children, and to ensure adherence to the laws.

The authorities cautioned that in the event that the unlawful content continues to be aired, the required legal steps would be taken and that they would monitor compliance with the instructions.

Netflix did not immediately respond to the charges.

Saudi officials also accused YouTube last month of allowing inappropriate advertisements that go against Islamic principles.
