After her recent performance, a fatwa has been issued on her. Fatwa is a verdict on a position in Islamic law specified by a accepted authority. Nahid Afrin has been asked to stop all her performances in public. Leaflets were distributed across two districts in Central Assam on Tuesday with the fatwa on it, claiming that her performance is against Sharia and that it will attract the wrath of God.
Police is investigating whether this fatwa was issued directly because she was advocating against terror and ISIS.
