Haramain (two holy places of Muslim) authorities have banned the selfie at the Masjid-E Haram in Mecca city, as well as the holy Ka’abah Sharif and the Masjid-E- Nabawi in Madinah. Haramain Wash Sharifain authorities have issued such a selfie-resistant decree because of problems with other visitors to take some people's selfie. The law enforcers will seize the mobile when they see someone taking selfies there.

Non-Muslims are prohibited from entering this holy place of Muslims. There a Jewish priest of Israel enters and takes a selfie. At that time, the Saudi government fell into a heated debate over the incident.

A Turkish couple was destined to travel to the holy city of Mecca and Medina following the Israeli priest's selfie. They went there and took a video and publish it. And in this case, the Haramain authorities faced more controversy.

Besides, Saudi authorities faced controversy over selfies at various times. That is why the country imposed such a ban.
