    Shahrukh Khan gets a 'fatwa'


    The controversy surrounding Shahrukh Khan's controversial comments on Prophet Mohammad refuses to die down. Now an Islamic seminary has issued a fatwa (legal ruling) against Bollywood star. The fatwa issued by Mufti Mohammed Shoeb Raza Qadri and Mufti Muti-ur-Rehman of the Darul-uloom-Mazhar-e- Islam who stated that the entire Muslim community was hurt by Shahrukh's comments.

    Mufti Mohammed called Shahrukh a Kafir (non-believer) and said such person should be thrown out of Islam. He also said that in an Islamic state such remarks would have called for a death penalty against the accused. He also added that Shahrukh's marriage with Gauri was nullified and Shahrukh must not be allowed to be buried in any Muslim graveyard.

    Bareilly-based Markazi Darul Ifta which is a authority for issuing fatwas however dismissed the fatwas issued by clerics. They stated that since Shahrukh has issued clarification that he was misrepresented in his alleged statements he should not be held guilty. Shahrukh has made the alleged comments in an interview given to the Time n Style Magazine.

    Last week an NGO by the name of Mumbai Aman Committee had filed complain against Shahrukh for his comments. They had asked the police file a case under section 504 of the IPC (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace). Shahrukh Khan is currently in US shooting for Karan Johar's My Name Is Khan.
