Isis bans football referees in Syria because they enforce ‘laws of Fifa not Sharia’


Isis has reportedly banned football referees in one of its Syrian strongholds because they uphold the rules of Fifa and not Sharia law. According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, Isis commanders told organisers of local games that referees would be banned because their decisions ‘do not judge according to what Allah has revealed’ and are ‘a violation of Allah’s command and the Sunnah.’ Commanders have also drawn up a list of rules, the SOHR reports, which describe how an injured player can receive compensation from their opponents, or exact revenge, under Sharia law.

The news comes before the beginning of the football league season in the territory around Deir ez-Zor.

‘We’re lucky because the football we play does not run using Fifa’s name – then the organisation [Isis] would have stopped games once and for all and not just refereeing,’ a player told the SOHR. Isis has banned a string of other activities including smoking, dancing and watching foreign television. Those who breach the rules put in place by Isis can be flogged, shot, beheaded or burned alive.

In recent months, US-led forces have pushed Isis back across Syria and Iraq. This week, the terror groups head of propaganda, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, was killed.

Thinking about it, Sharia is probably less corrupt than FIFA. :)

They can ban anything, it won't matter.
