Chennai: Muslim organisation Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath (TNTJ) has issued a 'fatwa' against yoga guru Ramdev's Patanjali products for containing cow urine, an official said.
"Use of cow urine is forbidden ('haram') in Islam. Any product made with cow urine is forbidden. Since Ramdev's Patanjali products have cow urine as an ingredient, we have issued a 'fatwa' (edict) against the products," M. Mohammed Yusuf, TNTJ state general secretary, told IANS on Wednesday.
According to him, the edict is against all products in which cow urine is used as an ingredient.
TNTJ said the ruling was issued to ensure that Muslims do not use the products without being aware of the forbidden ingredient.
