New Delhi: Exasperated over Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor’s marriage with Saif Ali Khan without her conversion to Islam, renowned Islamic institution Darul Uloom has declared the wedding as anti-Islam. The Islamic institution located at Deoband, a town in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, has said that the Kareena married to Saif due to her vested interest which is against Islamic norms.

Declaring a Fatwa (religious ruling as per Islamic law issued by an Islamic scholar) against the October 16 marriage of the two Bollywoood stars, Habib ur Rahman, the senior cleric of Darul Uloom, categorically said Kareena’s decision not to convert to Islam before her marriage with a Muslim male, Saif Ali Khan, shows that she was motivated by some vested interest. Islam never approves such acts. Had both of them been Muslims, the marriage would definitely have been religious.

Another cleric Mohammad Arif has also made scathing remarks against the marriage saying the norms practiced under Islam have been violated. Mufti Umar Ilahi expressed that Kareena remaining Hindu even after her marriage to Saif is totally against the canons of Islamic rules.

Bollywood star couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor on October 16 tied the knot in a quiet affair after a five-year courtship.

Saif, 42, son of late Nawab of Pataudi and former Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and actress Sharmila Tagore, sealed his relationship with Kareena, 32, at his residence in suburban Bandra through a registered marriage.
