Summary "In "Of fatwas and beauty queens" we see how a young Nigerian journalist, Isioma Daniel, inadvertently provoked a holy riot after her article on the Miss World competition in which she said that the Prophet Mohammed may have approved of the Miss World contest and may have even wished to marry one of the beauty queens. She was exiled from her country after provinical authorities placed a fatwa on her head - a controversial act in itself." -- four corners website
