New Delhi/Mumbai, Mar 17 (ANI): Muslim clerics were divided over a fatwa issued to a Muslim doctor against organs donation. Muslim cleric Mufti Mukarram said, “It is un-Islamic to donate one’s body organs after death, as we need to respect the body even after our death.” On the other hand another Muslim cleric Zeenat Shaukat Ali supported the doctor’s initiative. She said, “Fatwa is an opinion and this kind of opinion is wrong. It is good if our body parts are useful for others.” Earlier, a fatwa was issued against Dr. Arshad Mansuri to stop his organ donation campaign.
