At least, this is being reasonable; "Muslims can practice yoga for health & physical benefit," said MUIS.

In the previous post, Muslims in M'sia are not allowed to practice yoga.
Now, finally a reasonable news from MUIS (Islamic Religious Council of Singapore ) said that it's ok for Muslims to practise Yoga for health and physical benefits.
In the news, it says: In 1984, Fatwa Committee had issued a religious ruling that Muslims are not allowed to practise Yoga if it contains rituals and beliefs of other faiths.
But hey, can't we see that nowadays Yoga being taught in studios, is there any involvement in recitations or chanting? It's just a physical fitness purpose. Not unless they practise yoga in the temple or with religious guru.
