According to Odisha Now sources “Har Har Shambhu” singer Farmani Zaaz has come under the target of Muslim fundamentalists. Ulema Mufti Asad Qasmi has expressed objection. He has said that he does not consider dancing and singing in Islam at all permissible. Sharia doesn’t even allow it. It is a crime to sing such songs despite being a Muslim. A woman should abstain from it, she should repent.
