The tale of incredible fatwas continues. Days after the Darul Uloom Deoband prohibited women from plucking their eyebrows, a religious body in Jammu has now banned music at Muslim weddings.
The Islami Markazi Majlis-e-Shoura in Kishtwar district has also urged separation of boys and girls in school classrooms, advised not using phones and internet, and asked women to not go to markets alone.
Strict action against those flouting guidelines’
“Organizing musical events during marriage is unislamic. Those who do it are liable for social boycott,” said the document of dos and don’ts issued by Islami Markazi Majlis-e-Shoura.
Moreover, “teachers in coaching centres are urged to organize separate classes for boys and girls.”
The Islami Markazi Majlis-e-Shoura has warned of action “against those flouting the directives”.
