#BDS: India: Clerics Issue Fatwa to Boycott Israeli Goods

Muslim clerics here issued a fatwa, asking their community members to boycott goods manufactured by Israel and its friendly companies because of its offensive in Gaza. The legal pronouncement was issued on a question asking in the light of Islamic law, whether it was justified for the Muslims to boycott Israeli goods manufactured by Israeli and friendly companies as the profit earned by them was being used against the Muslims.
"The companies which fund Israel or support it economically, such companies and their products should be boycotted so that Israel can be weakened. So that such attacks do not take place in future against Palestinians or any innocent," said Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali, a Sunni Muslim cleric, Lucknow.
