Radicals issue fatwa, death threats against Muslim woman to stop her from teaching yoga

A Muslim woman from Jharkhand who is famous for teaching Yoga has now attracted the ire of few radicals who have issued a fatwa against her for this act. As per reports, the woman has also been at the receiving end of death threats, after which the administration has decided to tighten her security.

The woman named Rafia Naz, came into public focus after her photos of her doing yoga with Baba Ramdev went viral.

This seems to have angered a few members of her community who, as per reports, threatened her on Tuesday, not to teach yoga to anyone. Soon, this matter came to the attention of Jharkhand Chief Minister’s Principal Secretary Sanjay Kumar.

He as a result, directed the police to increase Rafia’s security. Ranchi’s senior superintendent of police, Kuldeep Diwedi subsequently dispatched a police force to meet Rafia. Later as per a report issued by Jharkhand police, she has been given two bodyguards.

Rafia is the eldest among her siblings and teaches yoga for a living. She is also pursuing her M. Com at a nearby college. As a result of her threats, her family members are now concerned for her well-being.

As per a statement given to the media she has expressed dissatisfaction with both Hindus and Muslims. As per her, on one hand she is being threatened not to teach yoga and on the other hand she is being asked to change her name so that people don’t hesitate before learning yoga from her.

She has put up a brave face during this whole episode and has asserted that she will continue teaching yoga for life.

Recent days have seen a sudden spurt in fatwas issued against various individuals and acts.

In October the Darul Uloom Deoband in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh, issued a fatwa banning Muslims from posting their pictures on social media. Darul Iftaa decreed that men and women should refrain from posting their or their family’s picture on social media as such an act is considered un-Islamic.

A few days later we had reported how the Deoband Ulema proclaimed that Muslim women who had famously performed Aartis in Uttar Pradesh, were no longer Muslims as if any Muslim prays to anyone except Allah, they have forsaken Islam.
