Fatwa against Theresa May: Scotland Yard investigates Islamic poster campaign targeting Home Secretary
by Gavin Allen
Posters issuing a fatwa against Theresa May have appeared in South London, prompting an investigation by Scotland Yard.
The Metropolitan Police are seeking the source of the Wild West-style posters, which claim the fatwa has been issued 'for the abduction, kidnapping and false imprisonment' of various radical clerics.
A fatwa can - but not always - be interpreted as an incitement to kill, and is an order issued by scholars in the Islamic faith.
