| Friday | 16th March, 2018
New Delhi: A fatwa was recently issued against a Mulim man in Kanpur after he pledged to donate his organs to people in dire need.
According to the fatwa, organ donation is not allowed in Islam and called for a boycott.
"I pledged my organs for the welfare of the society and also because I want the people from Muslim community to do the same.
(The) Fatwa says that donating organs is not allowed in Islam," he told news agency ANI.
Nonetheless, only a few thousand transplants from dead patients are carried out in the country - pointing to a much larger need for organ donation here.
