Dueling Fatwas

Reader comment on item: Dueling Fatwas

Submitted by Fazal Habib Curmally (Pakistan), Oct 5, 2010 at 10:02

All this fatwa issuing business is crazy. A fatwa is no more than a legal opinion. It is normally issued by the top members of the collage of top scholars or a State. In Pakistan, no Aalim or Mullah can issue a fatwa. If he does so, he does it and has to face the consequences. Once again it is a legal opinion of a learned person no more and no less..Any amount of scholars express opinions. It is their point of view.

I am sad that South Park had to bring religion in its program. Perhaps we are not as tolerant as we used to be at a point in time. Besides there are a lot of subjects other than religion that you can exploit or make fun of.
