Islamic seminaries divided over fatwa against full body scan : Leading Islamic seminaries in the country today responded differently to the Fatwa issued by a North America-based Muslim body against full-body scanning for security checks with some endorsing the ruling and others opposing it. While the prominent Islamic seminaries Darul Uloom Deoband and the Ulema Council supported the Fatwa saying such security checks were against the Islamic law and human dignity, the Islamic Centre of India saw nothing wrong in full-body scanning if it was necessary for security reasons.
However, Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahli, the general secratery of Islamic Centre of India and member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board took a different view of the issue. “If the full body scanning is necessary for security of any place or person, then it is OK, there is nothing wrong in full body scanning,” Maulana Khalid Rasheed said.

Trials of full-body scanners at Delhi airport from May : NEW DELHI: India will start using full-body scanners to screen passengers at the international airport here on a trial basis from May and decide by the end of the Commonwealth Games in October who will get the multi-million dollar contract to supply such equipment. “We need around 125-200 full-body scanners for Delhi and Mumbai. These are our busiest. The trials will run through the end of the Commonwealth Games. These scanners cost between Rs.8 million and Rs.10 million apiece ($160,000-$200,000),” the official said.
“Only a handful of countries like the US, Britain, France and Israel manufacture these scanners. Most of the scanners on trial here will be from US companies. The trials will also help us assess performance during power fluctuations or outages.”
