July 10th, 2019: A private bank in Pakistan has declared a popular movie and series streaming platform ‘Netflix’ as un-Islamic.

The news picked up after Netflix user Mohammed Ahmed Tariq reached out to the Shariah-compliant bank when his payments were rejected for the renewal for his subscription.

When he got in touch with the bank, he was informed that the issue was taking place because it falls against the bank’s Shariah policy.

While talking to BBC Urdu, Tariq shared that he had not even come close to think that this would be the reason for the rejection of his payment.

First of all, I hadn’t asked them for all the information that the bank had given me over the phone. And it wasn’t even in my mind that the Netflix payment would be rejected because the bank deems it ‘non-Islamic.

The news has been confirmed from the private bank.

Netflix has become a popular content streaming platform in Pakistan. There are 148million Netflix users around the world.
