ABSTRACT:
Polio vaccination crusade by World Health Organization (WHO) to annihilate the polio from the kyte of world aspiringly has been fruitful; however, there seems some disagreement and hullabaloos by some Muslim communities especially in four countries viz., Pakistan, Nigeria, Afghanistan and India. This hostility has numerous factors involved but the snogging one is the orthodox aptitude towards the polio vaccination drives. In this article, the dispute adjoining the vaccination program against polio by some Muslim groups has been discussed manipulating the views of religious opponents and finally the views of well known religious intellectuals supporting vaccination as a” legalized act” in Islam. In a peer look to reach final; it was concluded that Islam never favors such acts having vital trepidations about humanity and children health. Further, recommendations and suggestions have also been discussed in this article to sojourn these further humdrum embargoes by such groups to save children lives.
