Calling the Grand Mufti a self-appointed, Pervez Imroz, human rights lawyer and a civil rights activist in Srinagar, said that he had an intention of filing a case against the former for issuing the fatwa against the three-member all-girl band.
Imroz is the founder and President of the Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society (JKCCS) that works to build local alliances between Kashmiri civil society groups. He is also a convener of International People's Tribunal on Human Rights and Justice in ‘Indian-administered Kashmir’.
Reportedly, Imroz has filed umpteen habeas corpus actions on behalf of families who claimed their relatives had vanished while in the custody of the security forces. One may recall that in the past the Grand Mufti had issued a fatwa against the Christians also.
