The Shahi Imam of the Jama Masjid here has issued a fatwa against Pakistani journalist Aroosa Alam for violating Islamic laws after she endorsed her “friendship” with former CM Amarinder Singh.

Addressing a press meet on Wednesday, the clerics at the Jama Masjid, the regional headquarters of the Muslim Personal Law Board (Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh), said by staying at Singh’s residence in Patiala, Aroosa defied Islamic laws that proscribe married Muslim women from staying with any man except her husband. “Also there are no provisions for friendship between a married woman and a man. She is just trying to cover-up her unlawful relationship with Capt.

Singh in guise of friendship which carries no meanings and significance in Islam as well as Sikh religion,” said Habibur Rahman Sahni, the Shahi Imam.

He also demanded that Aroosa be deported immediately.
