Tamil Nadu #Muslim group issues fatwa against #Ramdev’s Patanjali products for using #cow urine

Tamil Nadu-based Muslim organisation has issued a ‘fatwa’ against yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali products containing cow urine, saying their use was considered ‘haram’ (forbidden) in Islam.

Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamat (TNTJ) said cow’s urine was being used as a ‘key ingredient’ in cosmetics, medicines and food products of Patanjali that are available in open markets as well as online.

“According to the beliefs of Muslims, cow’s urine is haram which should not be used. Therefore, TNTJ issues a fatwa that products of Patanjali are haram,” TNTJ said in a release.
