Abstract

Polio vaccination campaign by World Health Organization (WHO) to eradicate the polio from the kyte of world ambitiously has been successful; however, there seems some opposition and controversies by some Muslim communities especially in four countries, Pakistan, Nigeria, Afghanistan and India. This opposition has several factors involved but the osculating one is the orthodox aptitude towards the polio vaccination campaigns. In this booklet, the controversy surrounding the vaccination program against polio by some Muslim communities has been discussed exploiting the views of religious opponents and finally the views of well known religious scholars supporting vaccination as a” lawful act” in Islam. In a peer look to reach final; it was concluded that Islam never favors such acts having crucial concerns about humanity and children health. Further, recommendations and suggestions have also been discussed in this article to stop these further mundane boycotts by such communities to save children lives
