Pakistani President, Asif Ali Zardari, is the most recent public figure to have a fatwa issued against him. The fatwa, an Islamic legal pronouncement issued by a religious law expert, often calls for the murder of said person.
In this case, Zardari is accused of making “indecent gestures, filthy remarks, and repeated praise of a non-Muslim lady wearing a short skirt.” His death has been called for by a radical Islamic prayer leader out of Lahore, Pakistan.
However, he managed to gain the ire of others outside the religious community. Members of feminist groups in Pakistan, such as the Women’s Action Forum, were outraged, saying he was disrespectful and treated Palin as an attractive woman rather than as a politician in her own right.
