In Saudi Arabia, Mawlid is Bid'ah, the King's Birthday is Fine
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The Wahhabis sect in Saudi Arabia are quick to forbid the celebration of the Milad, the celebration of any birthday, and even forbids non-Muslims in the Kingdom from doing so. But celebrating the birth of their nation is fine, and the King's birthday is celebrated to an ostentatious degree. This is an example of the hypocrisy of the Wahhabi sect.
