GUWAHATI, March 16: The Hindu Yuba-Chattra Parishad, Asom (HYCPA) has condemned the incident of allegedly issuing a ‘fatwa’ by 46 Muslim clerics against singer hid Afrin, who was the first runner-up in the 2015 season of a musical reality TV show. Leaflets bearing the ‘fatwa’ in Assamese and the mes of the clerics were distributed across Hojai and gaon districts in central Assam on Tuesday. According to the ‘fatwa’, a March 25 programme at Udali Soi Bibi College in Lanka, Assam, where hid, 16, is scheduled to perform is “against the Sharia”.

“If anti-Sharia acts like musical nights are held on grounds surrounded by masjids, idgahs, madrassas and graveyards, our future generations will attract the wrath of Allah,” it said. The HYCPA president Balen Baishya in a statement said that until and unless the uniform civil code is imposed and Sharia law is scrapped, such process of issuing fatwa by Muslim clerics will continue. He termed the prevalence of such laws in India ‘unfortute’.
