The Fatwa was later withdrawn; but the Mullah is still adamant in shouting at his full pitch even when he uses a microphone. In India the late Mufti who had no knowledge of the basics of science, sought help from a Hindu scientist before enforcing his illogical edict. Now his son the ex-judge of the Shariat bench and a prominent Mullah of Darul Uloom Korangi Karachi is carrying on the tradition. For many years he refused to be photographed and never appeared before TV cameras. Like his father, he too has changed his mind and has been seen on the TV during the Lal Masjid operation in Islamabad.
