[Quote]

Sharjah: Sharjah municipality has launched a crackdown against the distribution of a controversial video game which has been banned.

Several residents complained about the game as it contains material offensive to religion, values and social norms.

The 18-rated video game God of War is based on Greek mythology that encourages players to kill different "gods" to reach the next level of the game. It contained sexual scenes.

A UAE national said he was one of the people who was shocked to discover that the game was distributed in commercial areas, including the Central Souq, Al Rolla and sports shops in Nuammiya.

"I knew that it was banned, but many of my friends were able to buy pirated copies from Dh5 to Dh10. I was shocked to see how much it contradicted Islamic values," said Khalid Bin Deemas, adding that it was dangerous as the video game was popular among children.

The permanent fatwa committee has instructed all concerned government departments to forbid the sale of such games and to confiscate them.

In layman's terms:

Oppressing women's rights in real life, and treating them like livestock = good
Having consensual, fun-filled sex with women in a video game = bad

Suicide bombing runs on innocent civilians = good
Decapitating demons and Persian soldiers = bad
