Islamic religious leaders in Pakistan have issued a fatwa against President Asif Ali Zardari for allegedly flirting with Sarah Palin when the two met at the United Nations last week during her meet-and-greet with foreign leaders, India's Daily News reported. Radical Muslim prayer leader Lal Masjid condemned Zardari's "indecent gestures" toward Palin as a disgrace to all of Pakistan. Zardari's "filthy remarks and repeated praise of a non-Muslim lady wearing a short skirt" was unbecoming of a head of state of a Muslim country, Masjid said during a sermon, according to the Daily News. Zardari has also drawn criticism from the Pakistani press and the nation's feminists, who blasted the president for calling Palin "gorgeous." He went on to tell Palin, "Now I know why the whole of America is crazy about you," and said he might hug her if his handler insisted. Masjid's fatwa, or religious edict, against Zardari does not call for any action or violence. Masjid said the Pakistani president's actions were particularly shameful in a time when "we are fighting the American war in our country and thousands of our people have been killed just to please Uncle Sam," the Daily News reported.
