Fatwa issued against Azad


Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir’s official Grand Mufti Saturday issued a fatwa against the Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad asking him to seek penance and clarify his reported statement about Mahatma Gandhi.

Azad, at function here on Gandhi Jayanti, had said the Gandhian way of life was the best path and everybody should follow it.

In his decree, Mufti Azam Moulana Bashir-ud-Din said the best way of life for every Muslim was the one shown by the Prophet of Islam and through his reported statement Azad had committed an act for which he must seek immediate penance.

“Anybody asking Muslims to follow a path other than the one shown by the Holy Prophet is violating the basic tenets of Islam,” the Mufti said in a statement.
