MUMBAI: The Maharashtra Chief of the Jamiat Ulama Maulana Hafiz Nadeem Siddiqui has announced that if Kareena Kapoor weds Saif Ali Khan prior to accepting Islam, the wedding would be considered nothing but a farce, DawnNews reported on Tuesday.

A statement issued by Malulana Siddiqui said that Saif and Kareena belong to separate religions and that if Saif considered himself as a Muslim, he would marry in accordance with the Shariah laws, adding that if Saif chose not to do so then his marriage could be anything but an Islamic nikkah.

The Jamiat Ulama cleric further said that if Kareena wished to marry Saif then she would have to accept Islam first.
