Saudi Hai’a Join Second-Life


Al Watan newspaper reported yesterday that the Saudi Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (CPVPV or Hai’a) now has a presence on Second Life on the Middle East island. It is an unexpected development for sure, but certainly wonderful to see their initiative.

If you teleport to the Middle East island, one of the first things you see is this invitation for all to attend a lecture on Ramadan.


There is no avatar yet playing the role of CPVPV agents (muttawwa)- perhaps it is a matter of time!

    Hmm, I don’t know if you’ve heard of the Tableeghi Jamaat, but they would do well to set up avatars in Second life as well 😛
