Fatwa du jour
via The Times of India:
Other terrorist groups which operate in India, such as Jaish-e-Mohammed (Army of Mohammed), Lashkar-e-Taiba (Army of the Righteous) are named after the Prophet and seek to draw their legitimacy from the divine connect.
Names like Qahar and Rashid are among the 99 different ways of addressing the Prophet.
Maulana Mastan Ali, director of Jamiat-ul Mominath – one of the largest seminaries in south India – who issued a fatwa on Sunday on using the Prophet's name, said: "If they (jehadis) can't shun the path of violence, they must at least drop the names so that the entire Muslim community is not blamed."
Whoa. So is it alright if some outfit named say Lashkar-e-Kufr (Army of the Infidels) to continue to cause terrorist attacks without using his prophet's name??
