Bad Fatwa by Muslim-American body against airport body scanners

The word “Fatwa” is wrongfully associated with “death threats”, it may be wise for us, until we educate the public that it is merely an opinion, and instead use the word “Opinion”. The word Fatwa carries a negative perception and until it is removed, it is not wise to use the word in this context.
