When Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa against Salman Rushdie in 1989
calling for his death, the fatwa became synonymous in the West with
extremism and intolerance. And yet for Muslims the fatwa is the bridge
between the principles of their faith and modern life. Thousands of fatwas
are issued every month in Egypt by religious leaders dealing with
everything from divorce to buying a car on an instalment plan to
breast-feeding in public. Presenter Eva Dadrian investigates how fatwas are
helping Muslims negotiate their faith in their daily lives. Produced by Katy Hickman of the BBC. This program airs as part of the international exchange series, Crossing Boundaries.
