Fatwa against Nahid!

Dozens of Islamic outfits served a diktat against stage performance by Muslim girls and women triggering huge statewide protest a couple of days ahead of a function in Hojai where Nahid Afrin is invited.

In its fatwa, these organization without naming Nahid, said that stage performance by girls and women is contrary to Islamic tradition which should remain in force.

Many singers, parties, organizations and individuals have openly come out opposing the diktat saying that these outfits should be rein in to avoid the impending backlash.

The budding talent fell disappointed as soon as she came to know the diktat as she was busy for her performance at Udali in Hojai.
