This one was perhaps inevitable, given Islamic laws regarding the covering of women. Sharia Alert from India: “Fatwa against modelling by Muslim women,” from the Press Trust Of India, April 6 (thanks to Twostellas):
A fatwa has been issued by a leading Islamic seminary against modelling by Muslim women.
Darul-uloom Deoband has said that exhibiting bodies by Muslim women while modelling is against the Shariat law.
The fatwa, which describes modelling as un-Islamic, was issued by Mufti Habibur Rehman, Mufti Mehmood Hasan, Mufti Fakhrul Islam, Mufti Zanul Islam and Mufti Waqar Ali of the seminary on Monday.
