Uttar Pradesh-based Darul Uloom seminary, Darul Ifta, in Deoband on Thursday issued a fatwa against the chanting of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, saying ‘there is only one God in Islam’.
According to the reports, the fatwa asked muslims to refrain from raising such slogan saying ‘it is against the faith of Islam’.
“We love our country, but it is not our god. In Islam, we believe in only one God and hence it is against the faith of a Muslim to chant the slogan,” the fatwa issued by the Deoband seminary said.
The reports added that the fatwa was passed following a two-day long hectic deliberation by eight-member panel of Islamic scholars from all over the country in Deoband.
