Fatwa Against Body Scans

February 20, 2010 - capitalism / islam / militarism / spiritual rights

Fiqh Council of North America issues fatwa against airport body scans:

“It is a violation of clear Islamic teachings that men or women be seen naked by other men and women. Islam highly emphasizes haya (modesty) and considers it part of faith. The Quran has commanded the believers, both men and women, to cover their private parts.”
