No prawns for Muslims

Hyderabad based Islamic seminary Jamia Nizamia has issued a Fatwa that Muslims should avoid eating prawns.

Prawns do not fall in the category of fish, and their consumption should be avoided, it said.

Some foods fall in the `prohibited’ category for Muslims, while prawns fall in `avoidable’ category, it said.

Jamia Nizamia, a century-old seminary, is a highly- respected Islamic institution in the city.

Fatwa is a legal pronouncement based on the Islamic law, issued usually when someone seeks to know the legal position on a particular issue.
