    Mumbai (Zee News) — Pakistani starlet Veena Malik, who has stirred a storm in Pakistan by posing nude for a magazine cover, is now facing the whip of Indian Muslim bodies as well.

    The All India Muslim Tyohar (Festivals) Committee in Bhopal issued a fatwa on Wednesday against the actress for showing disrepcet towards the sacred institution of “Nikaah” (marriage) by singing a contract with a channel for a wedding on National TV. Her nude photographs too have outraged the community that forced her father back home to disown her for shaming him.

    Majlis-e-Shura , 70-member supreme body of the All India Muslim Tyohar Committee, in Bhopal was receiving complaints from all corners and was urged to take stringent action against her.

    “The complaints said that there were offensive photographs of this woman all over the internet and that she was going to have a Swayamvar on television. Islam has a certain procedure for a Nikaah. We do not have Swayamvar,” he added.

    The members of the body sat for over two days to take a call on Veena Malik. At the end, a unanimous call was taken and a “fatwa” was issued on her, which means that she will be socially boycotted.

    Calling her a disgrace to Islam, Khurram said, “The extreme step has been taken because the woman has openly revolted against the tenets of Islam and Prophet Mohammad. You are a Muslim only if you follow the rules of the religion. She has made a laughing stock of the community. The social boycott became necessary to stop our community girls from following her example.”

    Malek’s apparently nude appearance on the cover of the December issue of FHM magazine’s India edition brought her global attention, but also invited condemnation. The outrage was compounded by the initials ‘ISI’, a reference to Pakistan’s security agency, often blamed by India for terrorist attacks, stencilled on her arm.

    As the frenzy over the shoot escalated, Malek denied posing naked for the shoot and claimed the images had been doctored to make her look nude.

    She maintains that stance. “Yes, of course, both the images were morphed. My upper portion was covered with tattoos. I think if I could rewind this time, I would like to delete. I feel cheated. But we all make mistakes, I have made a mistake, learned from it and want to move on.”

    The backlash against the actress has been “traumatic,” she said, adding that she is looking forward to moving on in 2012. “It has been tragic and traumatic, really sad. It has been very difficult.

    “I hope and pray that next year brings something nice, brighter and better.”

      I’ve heard it was a really bad airbrush job and that her critics should be able to see that since “half blind goats” probably could.

        I read the same thing a few weeks ago – for what ever reason – the fatwa maybe – it is back in the news. I hope she stands strong and doesn’t end up retreating back into a burka

    More devout Muslims doing what the quran and Muhammad command them to do. Obama say, “Respect it!”

    Last night I watched an interview with Condoleeza Rice. She said that America has done alot to help Muslims around the world and she said that we fought against the Christians in Bosnia who were attacking Muslims! 😯

    I surely hope not…

    And this isn’t some fringe Salafi group, it’s Sunni Islam’s highest body, Al-Azhar University.
