A Bangladeshi Muslim cleric has issued a fatwa against people using Facebook's "haha" emoji to mock people. Identified as Ahmadullah, the cleric has more than three million followers on Facebook and YouTube. He also makes regular appearances on TV to speak on religious issues. "If your reaction was intended to mock or ridicule people who posted or made comments on social media, it's totally forbidden in Islam," Ahmadullah said.
