Jharkhand: Fatwa issued against Muslim woman Rafia Naaz for teaching yoga
A fatwa has been issued against a Muslim woman named Rafia Naaz from Jharkhand for teaching yoga. The woman, Rafia Naaz, told ANI she had received many threats, and expressed gratitude to the state government for providing her with security. "I will not be scared and will continue with what I am doing," she said. Chief Minister Raghubar Das himself asked state police to protect the girl. Rafia Naaz likely came to the attention of the 'fatwa'-issuing clerics when she recently shared a stage with nationally recognised yoga practitioner Ramdev. Speaking to ANI, Ramdev said Muslims of many countries like Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia practice Yoga, adding, ” It is also practised in Pakistan.”
