|Fatwah Issued in Indonesia Against Endangered Wildlife Trafficking|
The guidance is for all Muslims in a country with the largest Muslim population in the world. It's considered a supplement to Indonesian law from a sharia law perspective.
Interestingly enough, the fatwah applies not only to people, but the government as well. It specifically calls upon the government to review permits issued to companies that harm the environment and endangered species.
Since, criminal wildlife trafficking syndicates are increasing violent, and it's an unprecedented time of wildlife crime, the fatwah couldn't come at a better time.
