Ulemas Are Not Authorised to Issue Fatwa, Says Nazneen Ansari”

Issuing a fatwa against Muslim women who performed "Aarti" (prayers) on Diwali in Varanasi, renowned Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband on Saturday said they can not call themselves "Muslim-Ulema" if they have worshipped other Gods. "If they continue to issue fatwas on such matters we will be bound to lodge FIR against them, as they are violating the directive of the Supreme Court given in 2014", said Nazneen, the founder president of Muslim Mahila Foundation and devout Muslim who has been publicly singing in praise of Lord Rama and other Hindu deities for last 11 years. The fatwa has prohibited muslim men and women from worshipping any other god than Allah.

The edict comes days after a group of Muslim women performed aarti and dedicated prayers to Lord Rama on the eve of Diwali in Varanasi. Ansari emphasised Ulemas can not oust them from Islam for organising an event meant to enhance communal harmony.

The fatwa had said that posting photos of self or family on social media sites such as Facebook, WhatsApp is not allowed in Islam.

Issued a Fatwa after the treatment of men who asked how Islamic laws relate to the publication of photos in social networks.

Darul Iftaa had then clarified that there are ten acts, including eyebrow plucking and hair-cutting which are banned for Muslim women under Islam.

Justifying the move, Shahnawaz Qadri, Darul Uloom Deoband, said, "Unnecessary uploading of pictures on social media is wrong".

Earlier on Wednesday, the Darul Uloom Deoband had issued a fatwa prohibiting Muslim men and women from posting their or their families photographs on social media sites. She said that it is misrepresentation of Islam and shows it of carrying anti-women values.
