Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

Fatwa against BSP’s ‘Jai Bhim’ slogan

Really no comments from me on this one, just laughs.

JAI HIND!! (oops was that blasphemous?)

A leading Islamic seminary has issued a decree declaring the BSP slogan of ‘Jai Bhim’ as un-Islamic and violative of Shariat.

In the fatwa, the Dar-ul Uloom said that the slogan, invoking Dalit leader Bhimrao Ambedkar, was “against the Islamic law as the religion does not permit such a prayer for anyone except Allah”.

The fatwa was issued by chief Mufti Habibur Rehman, Mufti Mehmood and Mufti Zeulislam on Saturday on a query raised by a medico M Mehraj Khan, seminary sources said.

While the decree has sparked concern in the BSP, especially among its Muslim leaders, a cleric from the seminary Asad Madani who recently joined the party said that the slogan was not a “compulsion” for the party workers. Backing the fatwa, Madani said it was based on Shariat law.
