Former MP Mahmood Madani Asks Darul Uloom To Issue Fatwa On ‘Defending Islam’

Updated on 10 September, 2019 at 6:05 pm By

Well-known cleric and former MP Mahmood Madani has sought a ‘fatwa’ for defending Islam in the face of right-wing Hindu campaigning under Prime Minister Narendra Modi regime, reports Hindustan Times.

 

Madani who heads a faction of Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind, a popular Muslim Organization, has sought the religious ruling from Darul Uloom Deoband that holds an influential seat of Sunni Islam in Uttar Pradesh.

Madani plans to declare the ruling publicly before a large gathering of clerics at a rally in New Delhi on May 16, the first-year anniversary of the Modi government. He said:

“After one year, the country will obviously demand answers. Religious freedom is linked to the honour of this country. If you can’t secure places of worship of whichever community, you can’t secure the country.”

Madani mentioned that he will also launch a yearlong campaign to implement the fatwa on May 16:



The  movement would focus on religious freedom, growing attacks on minorities, re-conversion programmes such as “ghar wapsi” and a generally tougher cultural climate under the Modi government

Though the fatwa is unlikely to be a radical one and in any case not binding, Madni’s move is surprising as much as intriguing for its confusing political signals. Modi had, in the past, appointed Madani to a national panel headed by himself to commemorate the 125th birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru.
