Men and women should be forbidden from interacting with one another on social networks since these conversations could lead to sin, a leading Saudi cleric ruled on Saturday.According to the Saudi daily al-Eqtisadiya, Sheikh Abdullah al-Mutlaq, who holds a seat on the Saudi Committee of Senior Scholars, said that cross-gender communication online falls under the category of khulwa, which is an Islamic term that denotes a situation where a man and a woman are alone in a room.
