Fatwa in Assam against teen Indian Idol star

Forty-six Muslim clerics in Assam have issued a fatwa against Nahid Afrin, first runnerup in the TV reality show “Indian Idol Junior 2015“, asking her to stop performing in public. Police suspect the fatwa was a reaction to Nahid's recent songs against terrorism, and particularly the terrorist organisation Islamic State.
Leaflets bearing the fatwa in Assamese and the names of the clerics were distributed across Hojai and adjoining Nagaon districts in central Assam on Tuesday . The fatwa said Nahid's programme on the Udali Sonai Bibi College grounds at Lanka on March 25 was also against the Sharia.
“If anti-Sharia acts like musical nights are held on grounds surrounded by masjids, idgahs, madrassas and graveyards, our future generations will attract the wrath of Allah,“ it said.
The singer, a resident of Biswanath Chariali who studies in Class X, broke down on hearing the news.“I am speechless. I never thought this could ever happen to me. I think my music is God's gift to me. I will never bow down to it (such warnings) and will never leave singing,“ she said. Her mother ad ded, “The organi sers of the musical night told us the pro gramme on March 25 will not be cancel led. She has another performance lined up in Karimganj on March 28.“
Police said Nahid and her family would be provided security . ADG (special branch) Pallab Bhattacharya said, “The leaflets were distributed by unidentified people and we are trying to verify the contents. Nahid recently sang a few songs against terrorism and the IS and had appealed for peace and harmony .We are looking at this angle as well.“
