Don't exaggerate - it's only portrait photography that will get you killed!

Remember that many of these folk believe that girls who want to be educated deserve to be shot. Why the surprise?

Umm... doesn't this report say that Uloom denies ever issuing such a fatwa?

Lets not over react. It just illustrates to me that we need to respect those at which we point the camera at - everyone has the right to not want to be photographed. Why should it matter whether their reason is based on religion?

The article has changed since the original post.

Bit like the BBC - post the rumour first, to get a sensationalist headline, then follow up with the facts.

The only sin in photography should be a wrong exposure! Wink

my apologies if this came over as a serious post, it was intended as tongue in cheek tbh.

I've noticed this happening more and more in the media recently, And find it more concerning than gutter press itself

This story was in the Hindustan Times, it seems. I personally didn't know it existed and wouldn't know where to buy or view it. Any why, as a UK resident non-Indian, non-Hindu would I?

Being upset by this story reminds me of the lady who complained to the police about a young couple making love in public view. The cop who came to investigate said he couldn't see anything. The lady told him that 'if you put this chair on top of the sideboard so that you can get your head through the skylight and then hold this mirror like this, you can see them through the crack in their curtains when they have the lights on'.

"images of human beings, whether in the form of a drawing or photograph, are not encouraged."
no CCTV, passports, politicians photo's in papers, illustrated story books.

Out of context of the original intention of not idolising individuals this would seem daft - I think the guy saying this did not fully understand it himself, whether or not it really has merit to some is another issue.

Luckily we are in a big world with lots of opinions Smile

Tbh, this should be closed down as the article has been rewritten from when I originally linked it.
Not even saying the same thing anymore. Even the title. That I copied and pasted is not the same
