first of all, im not fancy about yoga. neither learning it, nor have any interest to it. flipping over the recent newspapers, i got a shock to knowing that this yoga is 'haram' in the Islamic fatwa. yoga is linked to the Hinduism, about chanting or praying which is prohibited in the Islamic study.
ehh... what about other exercises?
Taekwondo is linking to Korean's religion?
Taichi is sort of praying to the Chinese's religion?
Kungfu is about Buddhism?
then, aerobics is linked to the Western religion?
so, all these exercises are 'haram'? and later on all other actions will be linking to the religion, and so be it.
what is the moral of the story?
religion is an independent issue, and should not mix with all sort of other factors. why not just stay in a perfect harmony state, instead to stir some turbulence in the calm situation.
