President of Jamiatul Ulema of India’s Mahashtra state, Maulana Hafeez Nadeem Siddiqui, said on Tuesday that the marriage between Bollywood actors Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor cannot be termed as “nikkah”, reported India TV News.

Siddqui said that the religions of both the actors are different, and if Khan calls himself a Muslim, then he should marry according to Islamic law.

The cleric further said that if Kapoor wants to marry Khan, then she should first embrace Islam. He said as for now, the wedding taking place tomorrow is nothing “but a joke”.

our ulema must move on and outgrow urge to poke their nose into the private life

of people . There are humendous problems facing muslims of the sub-continent : grinding

poverty hunger disease lack of education moral degeneration ,and so on. They should focus their attention and energies on a crusade against such problems and tell people what guidance Islam offers in this respect . Stop acting as moral police and manufacturers of fatwas.
