Darul Uloom Deoband stated that those martyred in Ghazwa-e-Hind will be great supreme martyrs. National Commission for Child Protection has asked Saharanpur DM and SSP to lodge an FIR.

Darul Uloom Deoband, one of the largest Islamic seminaries in the country, has reportedly issued a fatwa giving validity to the idea of Ghazwa-e-Hind. The seminary has written on its website that Ghazwa-e-Hind (invasion of India) is “valid from the Islamic point of view”. It further stated that those martyred in Ghazwa-e-Hind will be great supreme martyrs.

Terming the fatwa ‘anti-national’, the National Commission for Child Protection (NCPCR) has asked Saharanpur DM and SSP to lodge an FIR.

According to News18 Hindi, a netizen had sought information from Darul Uloom online regarding Ghazwa-e-Hind. This person had asked the seminary whether there is any mention of it in the Hadith.

In response, Darul Uloom Deoband cited ‘Sunan an-Nasai’‎, one of the ‘Kutub al-Sittah’ (six major hadith collections). It said that there is an entire chapter in it regarding Ghazwa-e-Hind.

Its mentioned in the fatwa that a hadith has been narrated quoting Hazrat Abu Huraira, who was close to Prophet Mohammad. In this he spoke of Ghazwa-e-Hind and said, “I will fight for it and will sacrifice all my wealth for it. If I die, I will be a great sacrifice. If I remain alive, I will be called ‘Ghazi’ (a Muslim warrior).”

Taking cognizance of the complaint by NCPCR chairman Priyank Kanungo, Saharanpur district officer Dinesh Chandra directed SDM and CO Deoband to take action after investigation.

Darul Uloom Deoband is the largest Islamic institution running several madrassas in the country. Madrasas linked to this seminary are running in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, where lakhs of students are enrolled.
