Kashmir's Mufti Caught Enjoying "un-Islamic" Music

Kashmir's Grand Mufti Miyan Bashirudin Ahmed (aka Muulana) demonstrating just how hypocritical some Muslims can be. In a video that has gone viral, the good 'ol Mufti is shown on a houseboat on Dal Lake enjoying music and poetry in mixed company AFTER he issued a fatwa claiming music was "un-Islamic."  The same man who forced the all-girl band Pragaash to disband.

"The doublespeak of the Mufti of Jammu and Kashmir is exposed, on the issue of music being un-Islamic," said Digvijaya Singh, general secretary of India's ruling Congress Party, was reported as saying in The Telegraph on Sunday.

"Singing is not in accordance with Islamic teachings. Society cannot be built or developed by doing un-Islamic acts like singing.” he said.

The fatwa was supported by Darul Uloom Deobandi seminary, one of the world's most influential centers of Islamic jurisprudence.
