A fatwa against A.R Insaan by a certain fickle group which takes their superstition very seriously, has forced the Oscar award winning composer to clarify that his music was in good faith of the superstition he dabbles in.
The fatwa pronounced the people associated with the film on Prophet as infidels.
“Well that just not nice, ” said Mr. Insaan. “Their interpretation of our superstition is wrong.”
“Everyone has their own sets of wrong beliefs about what God wanted us to do. That’s okay. Personally I think that any superstition that believes in exclusivity rather than pluralism is wrong and should be questioned,” said the celebrated Insaan.
Though, Mr. Insaan has clarified that he is no scholar of Islam.
“Look I am not a scholar, I read some things which made me feel good and that’s it. I have not looked at the whole history objectively, perhaps I am a kaafir if they say so, I don’t know. But the thing is I am only going to take the good part and turn a blind eye to the rest.”
The fatwa was issued by the notorious Raza Gaja Baja academy who take their books and other scriptures very seriously.
“Technically, a fatwa is an opinion issued by an Islamic scholar and is not binding,” said Saeed Noori, the chief of Mumbai-based Raza Gaja Baja Academy.
When NTMN presented Mr. Noori’s view to Salman Rushdie, he immediately called up Taslima Nasrin and they both shared an hour-long laughter.
