This is becoming a global problem. There is a polio outbreak in Syria because Pakistani jihadis are bringing the virus from home. A Pakistani Muslim cleric has said that polio vaccinations are un-Islamic. And the Taliban have for some time been murdering people who were administering the polio vaccine in Pakistan. And it isn’t just Pakistan: last February in Nigeria, a Muslim cleric was arrested for playing a role in sparking the murders of polio workers.

“Muslim Cleric’s shocking fatwa: Boycott polio campaign, schools,” from OneIndiaNews, December 3 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Issuing a shocking fatwa, a Muslim cleric asked villagers in Uttar Pradesh to boycott polio campaigns and schools in the locality.

In the fatwa, the cleric claimed that polio campaigns put new-born babies in danger. The fatwa has been issued in at least 30 Muslim dominated villages in Sambhal district.

According to media reports, the cleric, by issuing the fatwa, has been trying to pressurise the state government to make their villages part of the adjoining Moradabad district.

A fine of Rs 500 will be slapped against those who will disobey the fatwa, threatened the cleric.

Nearly 10 villages saw a total boycott while others witnessed a partial boycott of polio campaign on Nov 24, said a report. A fine of Rs 500 will be slapped against those who will disobey the fatwa….

    For the last many years i have been studying risks and danger arising through the expansions of certain religions. I am preparing a report on a conspiracy to reduce population of particular community in my country, India. I need details on fatwa issued in India against polio vaccination. I would be very much obliged if you could send me the detailed information relating the same. Thanks.

    I forgot “vaccinations are unIslamic” because they save live and prevent suffering. Islamists prefer death, dying, and a whole lot of suffering, -esp if forced on unbelievers!

    I say good. Muslims should create fatwas against all modern health services. Everyone else on earth is vaccinated already or can easily be, let the Muslims do themselves in.

    Actually, as Jeff S notes, there is nothing “shocking” about this Fatwa at all’similar pious Imams have issued Fatwas in Pakistan, Nigeria, Somalia, and many other places”and further, pious Muslims have threatened, kidnapped, and murdered polio workers.

    If there is anything at all “shockiong” about this Fatwa, it is that it was issued in an Infidel nation”but then, this makes little difference to Mohammedans.
