Fatwa against Priya Prakash Varrier Here is the truth
  • A social media forward stating that a fatwa has been issued against Priya Prakash Varrier is doing rounds
  • The message claims that one Maulana Atif Qadri issued the fatwa against her

After a group of Muslim youth from Hyderabad on Wednesday filed a complaint at Falaknuma Police Station against internet sensation and Malayalam actor Priya Prakash Varrier, news spread that a fatwa has been issued against her.

However, if you receive a Whatsapp message or a social media forward, let us tell you that it is a fake!


"After the viral video of Priya Prakash Varrier, Whenever we or our fellow Muslim Brothers closed our eyes to offer Namaz, instead of Allah, her face would appear, which is hurting our sentiments, hence we issued a fatwa against her," is the message that is doing rounds in social media. This was a parody on Maulana Atif Qadri.

The youths say that the song, when translated to English, talks ill about important figures in Islam.

The police has acknowledged the complaint but is yet to file an FIR.
