The fatwa asked every Muslim no to follow him.  Manzar-e-Islam Saudagaran issued the ‘fatwa’ on behalf of Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat. The fatwa came after the 26/11 attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed asked Pakistan army to send its troops to Kashmir in order to teach India a lesson. Saeed’s statement was in wake of killing of Kashmir-based Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani following which the valley has been witnessing protests and frequent clashes between the protesters and security forces. Hafiz Saeed has been vocal against India and has recently led anti-India rally in support of ongoing Kashmir agitation. “This time the people in Kashmir are on streets. This protest has become a mass movement,” said Saeed addressing a meet.
