Majlis-e-Shura, 70-member supreme body of the All India Muslim Tyohar Committee (Bhopal) explained the media for issuing a fatwa against Veena. “We were getting complaints from concerned community members who said that the activities of this Pakistani female actor was sending a wrong message to our teenagers, especially girls."
“The complaints said that there were offensive photographs of this woman all over the internet and that she was going to have a Swayamvar on television. Islam has a certain procedure for a 'Nikaah'. We do not have Swayamvar," he added.
In fact the actress have been ex-communicated. "She has been ex-communicated and no member of the community will entertain her from now onwards,'' chairman of the Majlis-e-Shura said.
