The International Ulema Conference held at Islamabad, supported polio vaccination and issued a ‘Fatwa’ which emphasized that vaccination is made of entirely halal contents. The ulemas unanimously declared that polio vaccination is mandatory for all Muslim countries so that this disease is eliminated in the coming generations. The ulemas further reiterated that attacks on polio workers are un-Islamic and they should be stopped immediately. Ulemas from International Islamic Organizations participated in this conference. This support for polio teams, and allowing them to do their jobs in all affected areas of the country is imperative.
