Muslim crazies want to take over the world and make us all hostages to their sick cult. But they also want to destroy the lives of everyone who does not want to become one of their mindless stooges.
Now we have another Islamic nutter who says that television - television! - should be banned as unIslamic.
Fuck you, goatfucker.
Fatwa against television trashed
Television is “haram (sinful)” and even watching religious programmes is not acceptable, an Islamic seminary said in a fatwa that has been trashed by scholars and community leaders.
The fatwa was issued by the Dar-ul Uloom in Deoband, near Muzaffarnagar, in response to a madarsa teacher’s plea to clarify whether watching Islamic channels and televised debates on religious issues was right.
The edict is being seen as regressive. “If watching TV is anti-Islamic, why do we watch Haj on TV?” asked Khalid Rashid Firangi Mahali of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board.
Khalid questioned how the clerics at Deoband, who are no strangers to television and often come on camera during debates, could take such a stand.
“These matters (watching Islamic channels) are related to religion, so you should see from whom you are taking your religion. You should learn from authentic and pious people,” the fatwa, issued on December 8, said.
The Deoband clerics argued that while television “is a tool of entertainment and enjoyment”, it was mostly used for “unlawful and prohibited things”.
Yeah - like videos from bin Laden and al-Zawahiri and other associated goatfuckers.
