Saudi-chaired GCC panel asks Netflix to remove content that violates Islamic values

Saudi-chaired GCC panel asks Netflix to remove content that violates Islamic values

The Committee of the Electronic Media Officials in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states, chaired by Saudi Arabia, voiced serious concern over the content broadcasted by Netflix, saying that they flagrantly contravene Islamic and societal values and principles.
In a joint statement issued on Tuesday, the committee and Saudi Arabia’s General Commission For Audiovisual Media (GCAM) demanded Netflix to remove the infringing contents and warned that they would take all legal measures against Netflix if it failed to adhere to the regulations.

The committee reaffirmed that the materials broadcasted by Netflix contradict Islamic and societal values and principles. The statement noted that Netflix is broadcasting infringing content and visual materials that violate the media content regulations that are in force in the GCC countries.

The committee and GCAM have confirmed that they have contacted the streaming platform to remove infringing content. In addition, they have also demanded to remove contents that are directed to children as these contain infringing materials.

While noting that they are following up on the platform’s adherence to the directives, the committee and GCAM renewed their demand to Netflix to strictly comply with the regulations.
