My Fatwa Trumps Your Fatwa

jesus-last-supper-trick.gifIN the Daily Times – “Your right to know – a new voice for Pakistan” – eveyone is talking at once and knowing increasingly little.

A Pakistani cleric has prlciamed a fatwa on an Indian fatwa:

An Islamic scholar in Pakistan has warned that a fatwa on slaughtering cows issued by an Indian Muslim cleric will “encourage Hindu beliefs” in Indian Muslims.

A few days ago, the mufti or head cleric of one of India’s biggest madrassas, the Darul Uloom Deoband (DUD), Mufti Habibur Rehman, said that Indian Muslims should take care when slaughtering the cow that is considered sacred by Hindus. He pointed out that the slaughter of the cow is prohibited under Indian law and thus it was not right to use its meat secretly.

In response, the head of Darul Ifta wa Al-Qazzath of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JD) Pakistan, Mufti Abdul Rehman Al Rehmani, said that the “fatwa” should be withdrawn immediately and justified. “The fatwa encourages Hindu beliefs,” Al Rehmani said while talking to Daily Times on Tuesday. His official stance was published on the JD website the same day.

Does by head look fatwa in this?
