I already wrote in one of my earlier posts dated 14th December’2012 in regard to relevance of Fatwa in the context of the present day culture as it obtains not in India alone but through out the world as a whole. The post so written is given below as a link for the ready reference of the valued readers:
Now that there is yet again a Fatwa issued against matrimonials with photographs, it looks like fatwas are emerging out of mere chitchats. The Muslim authorities issuing fatwa have, however, given exemption to those affixing their photographs for the VISA purposes. The photos given for the purpose of matrimonial requirements are not for any publicity, nor they are given by the person concerned for glamourising herself. Parents do it exclusively for their daughters finding a match through media. The boys too do the same thing for the purpose of their marriage. What’s wrong in it. If they do it in a traditional order with mouth to mouth publicity, the scope is too limited and not capable of eliciting necessary results, where after the only alternative left to them is the media. What is actually in the interest of the people in general is to lift such type of arbitrary bans allowing them to resort to whatever tangible means that can bring them the necessary results.
