    Default Malaysia Islamic body bans yoga for Muslims

    Malaysia Islamic body bans yoga for Muslims

    (11-21) 19:35 PST KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) --
    Malaysia's top Islamic body has ruled against Muslims practicing yoga.

    In its non-binding edict, Malaysia's National Fatwa Council says yoga has elements of Hindu religion that could corrupt Muslims.
    Council chairman Abdul Shukor Husin says yoga involves not just physical exercise but also includes spiritual elements.
    Though the council's decisions are not legally binding on Malaysia's Muslim population, many nevertheless abide by the rulings.
