For suggestions of places to go out

A number of doctors specializing in psychoanalysis confirmed that the case of the attack on the dumps program “Ramez Majnoon Rasmi” is due to the success achieved by the program over 10 years, despite the warnings of the Mental Health Hospital about the danger of watching the program on the behavior of young adults because of the scenes of violence and the distress links it contains The program, as well as asking the media union to stop the program broadcast on MBC Egypt.

Dr. Ibrahim Magdi Hussein, a consultant psychiatrist, assured «Al-Masry Al-Youm» that the Ministry of Health should use the success of the Ramiz program in campaigns to educate citizens about the dangers of the Corona virus, and said: “Each year, Ramiz is attacked by some but we find a high turnout rate Watching the program is great, and it achieves the highest viewing rates, thus achieving the highest rates of advertisements. Hence, the idea of ​​relying on it comes in campaigns that can be utilized like Corona and other things that society needs.

Hussein pointed out that the Ramez program falls under the quality of entertainment and variety programs, and is widespread in the largest countries in the world, criticizing and mocking big symbols in countries, and sometimes reaching the President of the United States of America, but we in Egypt do not have a culture of accepting criticism based on a person’s position or appearance or A modern method, and we consider it bully and sadistic, and in fact, it does not deviate from the framework of an entertainment art and an entertaining program for everyone.

He explained that the artists who appeared with Ramez over 10 years in 300 episodes, we did not find that any of them was harmed or complained of any psychological harm, but on the contrary, you find them laughing and accept the matter for the sake of humor and entertainment, and the public is enjoying the matter, asking why this use is not used In campaigns such as support for cancer patients, and to be awareness-raising and serious campaigns, not Shehata as some do.

He said: “People are trapped by corona and all that is happening in the world, and they do not live in Ramez, they will not talk show programs, and applications on the Internet broadcast films and downside series and establish principles and ideas that are not compatible with our customs and traditions, absent awareness, and do not coincide with religion, and its danger to society is very large And for the people who say that the program establishes the idea of ​​torture and sadism among children, I tell them if you are afraid for your child, he will not be watching, on the program, and I will also block the action movies, and he will not sit on the net because the action program is 100 times more dangerous than the Ramez program, which does not come out of being a wasteland A little bit tough. ”

For her part, Dr. Rasha Al-Jundi, a consultant psychiatrist, said that the continuous criticism of the artist Ramiz Jalal for his presentation of the program “Ramiz Majnoun Official” broadcast on the channel “mbc” in the month of Ramadan was aimed at entertainment and laughter, and that most of the critics and opinions based on the point of fear on the guest of the episode and fear Children and youth should be affected by this type of program and try to imitate it in reality with those around it as a matter of humor.

The “soldier” added to “Al-Masry Al-Youm” that the “declared reasons for criticism regarding the mental health of children, adolescents or young people are illogical, so you must present to them the reality of reality and how to deal with it, and it is not correct to tell your child that no one is playing with fire as you see in The program, or prevent them from watching it, because in your life your child may later meet someone playing with fire on the street. ”

As for Dr. Mohab Mujahid, a psychiatrist, he confirmed that the Ramiz Jalal program is one of the entertainment and entertainment programs like all international programs, and he does not believe that he has a goal other than entertainment and achieving the highest views and revenues, excitement and suspense, and that the reactions of the guests and the comments of Ramiz and his challenge to the guests aim to attract viewers to follow it To achieve success and profit.

Mujahid described what some people repeat, the goal of the program is to change society’s ethics, the negative impact on children and support for violence. It is unjustified because the program’s message is profit and attract ads like the whole program, noting that children are not all “one template” and cannot be influenced consistently, stressing that the drama Television and cinema have much greater violence than the Ramez program and there are many of them that are not suitable for children. In spite of that, only those responsible for it wrote “+18” and left the choice to the viewer, and I believe that the program succeeded in reaching people and achieving the highest views, so some criticize it unjustifiably and exaggeratedly. Regarding the impact on children, some children will watch for fun and laughter as they go to amusement parks and play games similar to the program and horror games, and there are some children who are negatively affected by these programs and their number is small, and parents should educate them and choose the content that suits them.

Mujahid concluded his remarks by saying that I am against imposing any wills on the content presented in the program “Ramez Majnun Official” because the father and mother are the true wills of their children and not TV.

The Abbasiya Mental Health and Addiction Hospital, affiliated with the General Secretariat of Mental Health at the Ministry of Health and Population, issued a statement attacking the “Ramiz Majnoon Official” program presented by the artist Ramiz Jalal on MBC Egypt, linking what Ramiz does and leads to psychological tension among many viewers Corona virus infection.

He added: «And we found that the program carries a lot of violence, torture, mockery, and disdain for the guests, and delights in the pain it causes for others, and the practice of bullying them, amid the laughs of the presenter, and in contradiction with the human and human humanity, which people must deal with each other, which is considered Underestimating human values, and deliberately spreading satisfactory behaviors, and the implication of enjoying the torture of others and degrading their human dignity, and this is what we see as a threat and a threat to the mental health of the Egyptian citizen, and the viewers of the program, old and young.

The program had been subjected to a flood of attacks by many groups, individuals and the public since the first episode that was presented, which was hosted by the artist Ghada Adel, where many journalists and members of the Egyptian parliament demanded to stop broadcasting the program.

The lawsuit also said that the contentious program practiced media work outside the Arab Republic of Egypt, meaning that it was photographed and produced within the United Arab Emirates in accordance with the procedures followed, which means that it is not addressed by the Media Syndicate Law.

The text of the first article of the Media Syndicate Law states that: “Media activity is every activity that broadcasts news, information, ideas, opinions or facts from their source through audio and visual means with the intention of informing and informing public opinion about them.
