A short video meant to promote ‘Combat Field’ zone of Riyadh Season 2021 features former Imam of Kaaba Sheikh Adil bin Salem bin Saeed Al-Kalbani & football stars.
In the 2 minutes & 41 seconds promotional video clip, the former Imam of Kaaba gives a concise introduction to his position. The clip shows soldiers engaging in a battle & using weapons of war.
Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Entertainment shared the video on Twitter via Turki al-Sheikh & the former Imam of Kaaba joked below the tweet, “Do you think I can go to Hollywood?”
As the move created an uproar on social media, the former Imam of Kaaba came under severe criticism.
When a social media user said your presence in the video is strange, a person responded in a critical tone, “May God guide you & open your heart.”
The same Imam of Kaaba was spotted playing cards a few years ago.
