Deoband hits back, rejects “baseless” charge of radicalizing Muslim youth




By Md. Ali, TwoCircles.net,

New Delhi: Darul Uloom Deoband, the centuries old Islamic seminary of the Indian subcontinent, has strongly objected to the allegations about the seminary getting funds from the Saudi government and it being a source of radicalization of Muslim youths in India.

Talking to TwoCircles.net from Deoband, Maulana Qasim Nomani, the Rector of Darul Uloom, rejected the charges leveled against the seminary by All Indian Ulema & Mashaikh Board (AIUMB). The AIUMB, which claims to be a Sufi group, had alleged that seminaries like Darul Uloom Deoband get funds from Saudi Arab and radicalize Muslim youths, poisoning their minds by Islamic extremism.



Darul Uloom Deoband

Politics, not Sufism

Hitting out at the AIUMB, Nomani accused the AIUMB of playing politics in the garb of Sufism.

“These people claim to be Sufi but Sufism was the last thing they practiced. You tell me if you find any thing remotely related to Sufism in their speeches. Sufis never call others Kafir but this is the favorite pastime of these groups,” said Nomani.

Darul Uloom reactor also said that the AIUMB needs to come out clean when it comes to its secular credentials as it hasn’t condemned the terrorism propagated by the RSS and Narendra Modi.

“These groups have always sent soft feelers to the Hindutva forces and they did that again when AIUMB talked of being soft on Modi who should be in jail for supervising genocide of Muslims,” said Maulana Nomani.

He said that, “mainstream media in India, is known for ignoring problems of the Muslim community but what you need to question is that why is it, that you find this group being covered on the front page of every news paper?.”

Nomani said that it was Darul Uloom which gave Fatwa against terrorism and it was all because of this fatwa that the media, to a large extent, changed the pattern of covering bomb blasts and Muslim community.

“The charge that Deoband is spreading Islamic extremism, is as ridiculous and baseless as it can be. People shouldn’t forget that Darul Uloom was the first among Islamic seminaries in India to condemn terrorism in all and every forms. Thanks to our Fatwa against terror, that the media changed its attitude towards Muslims vis-à-vis terror attacks and bomb blasts,” said Maulana Nomani.

On Saudi funds

Nomani said that the seminary has never accepted and in future also, will never accept funds from any government sources, be it Saudi Arab or the government of India or any state government in the country. He claimed that accepting no government funds is one of the eight basic rules governing Darul Uloom, and this was actually the last will of its founder, Maulana Qasim Nanutwi.

Regarding the charges of Saudi funds as AIUMB’s desperate attempts for cheap publicity, Nomani said that government aid was one of the reasons why the seminary and the entire Deoband fraternity, didn’t accept the Central government proposal of Central Madarsa Board as government aid was the Board’s prominent feature.

“How can we go against the vision of our elders? From the very first day of its establishment, Darul Uloom has never accepted and will never accept government funds because it’s against the basic rules which govern this Madarsa,” added Maulana Nomani.

On being Anti-Sufi

Maulana Nomani was surprised when this correspondent asked if Deoband was anti-Sufi. Claiming that Darul Uloom Deoband is part and parcel of Sufi tradition in India, he said that Deoband scholars like Ashraf Ali Thanwi, and others were Sufi saints as well and they had their Khanqahs (Sufi hospice).

“Who said we are against Sufism? We very much follow the Sufi traditions and all of our elders were Sufi practitioners of Sufi tradition,” Nomani added.

Maulana Nomani said that there are four schools of thoughts in Sufism in India -- Qadri, Chishti, Naqshbandi and Suharwardy -- and claimed that most of the teachers at Darul Uloom are associated with one of these schools.

Maulana Nomani's criticism of All Indian Ulema & Mashaikh Board may be appropriate, but he must also listen to what the AIUMB charges. If Deoband accepts funds from Saudi billionaires, that is petro-dollars even if it is not Saudi government money, and it may be donated to promote Wahhabism. Let us keep Islam in India moderate, pro-peace, anti-violence and preaching the message of "Live and let live". Let us not call anyone "Kafirs". Let us remove that word from our lexicon.

IS IT WRONG TO CALL THE QADIYANIS KAFIRS?

IS IT WRONG TO CALL THE QADIYANIS AND THEIR ILK 'KAFIRS"?

S.M.PASHA

Qadiyanis of india

Mr.SMP!
I am the one who accompany with youon the first anniverrsary of Shahadat e Babri.
To submit the memorandum to the collector. I remember my self and you ( two men army)
Were in that "Historic begin".
Okay. About Qadiyanis they were never be a sect in Muslim Ummah .
They are from the beginning out of the Islamic fold . They are not and never accept the finality f the prophethood which is fundamental faith of Islamic doctrine. So no question arise Here.
AIUMB better to go set in Theire "khanqahs" do the meditation,tahleel,Tasbeeh,Tahmeed.

QADIYANIS ARE UNDILUTED NON-MUSLIMS

ASSK. JAZAK ALLAH KHAIR FID DUNYA WAL AAQIRAH
HOW ON EARTH CAN THOSE WHO DECLARE THAT THERE CAME A PROPHET AFTER THE 'THE QATHAM-E-NABOOWATH" BE CONSIDERED AS MUSLIMS, MAY I KNOW? THE QADIYANIS ARE THEREFORE 'NON-MUSLIMS'
AS REGARDS OUR TW0-MEN ARMY, SUFFICE IT IS TO POINT OUT THAT THEY ARE COWARDS WHO DARE NOT BE ON THE RIGHT WITH ONE OR TWO ( QUOTE: KHALIL GIBRAN)
S.M.PASHA

IS IT WRONG TO CALL THE QADIYANIS KAFIRS?

Yes, it is wrong. They believe in one God, they believe in our Prophet, and they believe 99.9%of the Quran. We believe that "the Seal of the Prophets" is fundamental to Islam, but we cannot force our belief on everybody.

EVEN THOSE WHO DISBELIEVE POINTONE PER CENT OF QURAN ARE KAFIRS

Mr. GHULAM MOHIYUDDIN - FOR YOUR INFORMATION, THOSE WHO DISBELIEVE EVEN POINT ONE PER CENT OF THE QURAN ARE KAFIRS
S.M.PASHA

No, Mr. Pasha

Mr. Pasha says, "THOSE WHO DISBELIEVE EVEN POINT ONE PER CENT OF THE QURAN ARE KAFIRS." That is arbitrary and wrong. They can be called erroneous, but not Kafirs.

it is 100% correct to call

it is 100% correct to call them Kafir, In his own biography as recorded by his wife, Dajjal Qadyani suffered a disease and used to pass urine and Shit everywhere, and he died with his head in the toilet.( this is according to their own books as recorded by his wife)

ARE YOU QADIANIS?

These Ghulam and Pasha the 'THE IGNORANT TWO' the sympathiser of 'Bud-Aqida'(misleading & spoiled) Qadianis, who Allah forbid believes that prophet Mohammed SAW is not the last prophet, Nauzubillah an another prophet will arrive on an appropriate time!
PASHA AND GHULAM ARE YOU QADIANIS?

A WRONG CONCLUSION

CAN ONE WHO OPENLY DECLARES THAT QADIYANIS ARE KAFIRS BE SUSPECTED TO BE A SYMPATHISER OF THE QADIYANIS"?
S.M.PASHA

Religion of Peace..

Indeed Mohiyuddin sb but your call for let us 'keep'...is strange and shows the strain/refrain of the Barailvi burden..reform via blame.God listens to those on the right path the muttaqeen. If you and those leading this unneccessray tirade are on the right path please raise your hands and pray for the misguided among your brethren , the Wahabis et al..and for those who are becoming crusaders of sufism without undergoing the hardship sufis faced and without love in their hearts..What is redicalising the educated Muslim youth is the anti-Islam, anti-Muslim movement all around , which is no doubt no solution but dividing our house for cheap approval and may be desire for worldly success is neither.
I entirely agree with Nomani sb and pray to God to keep FITNA away from our humble abodes.May God guide our guides..Aameen

@Ghulam Mohyuddin:

What exactly do u mean by 'Moderate Islam'? When someone speaks the Truth, it is bound to offend the follower of Falsehood. That does not mean we have to compromise with Truth and support Falsehood! Similarly Islam stands for Truth and Justice, we cannot compromise it to please anyone. AIUMB charges and baseless against prominant Islamic semenaries and organizations. It is afraid of growing influence of Tablig and whahabi ideologies that are against un-Islamic practices that were created in the name of sufism. Those who speak against any pirticular ideology, should first study it and understand it before leaveling allegations against it. Peace.

What is Moderate Islam?

Moderate Muslims oppose extremist and absolutist beliefs. They oppose those Wahhabis who try to force their beliefs on others and use violence to "bring others into line". Those who hold Wahhabi beliefs but do not try to coerce others are not a problem. Nobody has the monopoly on Truth.

Correct yourself Mr.Imran!

Mr. Imran,
According to you Wahabism is spreading,
yes it is true, but on what cost? ISLAM IS DECLINING.
Muslims are been treated worst than worms and killed mercilessly willfully by non believers worldwide.
I remembered a Hadeed, Prophet SAW said once to Sahabees, 'you will be in large number, like bubbles in the stormy sea, but the tyrant will attack you like hungry wolfs'.
Sahabees ask, how it is possible?
Prophet SAW said, during that time 'Muslims will fear with death and love worldly life'!
How Ghulam Mohammed Dastanvi, Mehmood Madni and their Wahabbi followers are behaving?
same as Prophet Saheb stated.
The true spirit of Islam and teaching of holy Koran is declining!
Are you satisfied this skull cap, half mast Paijama holders having guts,
spreading true Islam?
answer is NO and NO!

Reform vis blame?

You may call it reform via blame, but no reform is possible without pointing out what you think is wrong. If there is nothing wrong, what is there to reform?

We are all Idiots!

Yes, Mr.Ghulam, we are misguided bunch of idiots, including you and me!
following idiots Ulemas like Dastanvi and Madnis.
Where from reforms come?

May Allah Protect all of us.

The clarification from Mr. Nomani in his last para is a welcome gesture towards Sufism, rightly he declared that 'all our elders were 'Sufi practitioners of Sufi tradition', actually it is eye washing by Mr. Nomani, he is lying and making us fool. These Wahabis/Deobandis/Ahle-Hadeed, always disrespect Sufi tradition and labelled them as grave worshiper!
Regarding funding of petrodollars to these Wahbis seminaries is hundred percent right, but this fund is not deposited in the account of seminaries but it goes to the personal accounts of the concerned bosses for their personal worldly pleasures!
Yes, there is no iota of doubt that no way these Wahabi/Deobandi elements are involved any way in terrorist activities, they only come forward to rescue the victims for legal help, falsely implicated in terrorist acts by police.
These Deobandi Ulemas are become infamous by issuing Fatwas on each and every issue publicly by accepting hefty fees/Nazrana as bribes, the Stein operation by a local TV is witnessed by the world in recent past.
They are the first to praise and condemn each and every incidents related to Indian Muslim, particularly declaring themselves secular, patriot and pro government and sole custodians of total 25 cores of Muslims of this country! Some times it looks 'Choor Ki Dadhi Me Tinka' like.
They are thinking the person belong to their faction with skull cap and half mast Paijama, holding a shabby bag, accepted the invitation of 'Chilla' by abandoning his family is true Muslim and other who don't follow their ideology/doctrine are non believers!
My Braelvi/ Sufi brothers are also to be restrained, yes they are performing many un Islamic traditions, which are not permitted in Islam.
What Barelvis are doing? attending Dargahs, they just perform 'Fatiha Khawani' like idol worshipers. They offers 'Niyaz-Nazrana' like 'Parsad' offered by really non believers, dancing shabbily on the road pretending they are serving Islam, the way!
I have concluded this is all happening because we have forgotten the teaching of Prophet SAW and Sahabas and of course abandoned Koranic teaching. In sub continent, particularly in India the UP-WALA Ulemas have done a Himalayan damage to the common people by dividing the Muslims in certain sects for their own worldly gains.
May Allah protect all of us.

Deoband

It is a tragic situation for the Muslims of India. Despite being the largest minority comprising some 150 million yet they always have to be apologetic,explain,pretend etc to prove that they are true Indians all the time. Why are they being constantly being provoked is the question. If the Indian government considers India to be a democracy it should give all the freedom and rights to a minority no matter what religion or what culture they follow. Muslims had ruled the sub-continent for a thousand years in the form of conquerors,reformers,preachers,administrators and soldiers identifying themselves as an Indian community. India had the proud traditions of both Hindu and Muslim cultures which sometimes even intermingled.
But Hindus do not seem to forgive Muslims based on their misunderstandings and wrong teachings of Indian history by Hindu historians who have distorted facts and doctored information for the sake of politicians.
Deoband institution goes down in the rank of Oxford and Cambridge in creating an intellectual class of students. It is not just Islam that is taught but science,technology,English literature,and so on.
The ancient Arabic sources regarding Islam are simply fascinating and much admired throughout the world.
Deoband is a decent high class institution endowed with richness of religion,philosophy,literature. To search for some excuse to criticise it is being cheap and narrow minded which is being the attitude of many Hindus of today.
If Saudi Arabia helps let it be. Saudi helps Hindus too. Why not Muslims. Islam is a universal religion and all Muslims generally look upon each other as brothers with exceptions of course. Why do Hindus of India work in these Islamic countries if they hate Muslims so much.
Hindus of India must learn to respect and understand the Muslims of India if they want a peaceful India. They cannot go on playing this hypocritical role for too long. Modi must be executed for his crimes if religious harmony is to prevail and Indian justice is to be proved. Hindus must stop being jealous of Saudi help to Muslims. of India. In fact Saudi is not doing enough to uplift the miserable condition of their co-religionists.
Islam is a great and powerful religion with a very powerful universal history. Hindus must understand this and learn about it instead of worshipping stones and idols.

Why not otherway too

Why not MUSLIMS learn to respect HINDUISM too. Why shout FIVE TIMES A DAY FROM ROOF TOP that "there is no other GOD" in a multireligious country USING LOUDSPEAKERS. Loudspeakers did not exist at the time of MUHAMMAD and so it could not have been mentioned in QUR'AN. So why use LOUDSPEAKERS??
The tragic situation of MUSLIMS in India is brought about by themselves. MUSLIMS dress differently and do everything differently to HIGHLIGHT their separate identity and when they are "treated separately" MUSLIMS take offence. MUSLIMS must integrate with the society rather than insisting on HIGHLIGHTING their separate identity. MUSLIMS in KERALA- educated MUSLIMS vote on communal lines voting for a communal party- the only political party in India with a communal name- MUSLIM LEAGUE and then want everyone else to be secular!!!!!Muslims all over India behave communaly- just wait for UP ELECTIONS to see what UNEDUCATED MUSLIMS of UP do. So educated or uneducated, MUSLIMS remain communal unlike HINDUS who are substantially secular. If MAJORITY of HINDUS were not secular- the 80% HINDUS would have had a RSS/VHP/ SHIV SENA Govt in India like what has happened to the country created for Indian Muslims in 1947- PAKISTAN.

IT is all neem-hakeem khatrey

IT is all neem-hakeem khatrey jaan. I doubt there are more than 100 Scholars who can understand, qualify and guide the public on these subjects. So have a balance attitude, as been said that 72 sections will be there, then what is the problem. So better avoid making fun and insult of oneself and religion in front of the world. Pity
faruqi - an observer - noida

Politics is behind the quarrels.so let us unite under Welfr Prty

I think, politics is behind the indecent quarrels between Deobandis and so called Sufis.Actually, if there was no political aims, and only ideological aims, their language should have been more polite.

So, my suggestion to avoid political pressure and influence on the community leaders is a political party .Welfare Party is a party in which all sects of Muslims are there.Representatives of Dalit, upper caste Hindus and Christians are also there in this Muslim majority political party.So, if all sects come under a single political umbrella, many of our problems will be solved.Then , it will not be able to exploit us politically.Moderate Barelvis, moderate Deobandis, moderate Ahle Hadees followers, moderate Islamists ...all may come under one political umbrella.Then, extreme degree of hatred between different sects will be solved.

My idea is from Shaheen's

My idea is from Shaheen's comment in TCN on another occasion.

dont give a lolipop to media

dont give a lolipop to media every body know that u deobandi/wahabi/Ahlay Hadees are liars, this is ur age old practice as been done by your ancisters whose names you have quoted in your interview.
come out of ur so-called tradition and do not shout just humbly accept your lies after being exposed by the AIUMB.
this is just the begning you all will be exposed on every platform serving the way of TRUTH.

baraily to deoband

our prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam has asked us to love himself more than our family, wealth etc..these wahabi , deobandi , ahl e hadith , qadyani disrespect our prophet and his teaching ..they forgot how sahaba loved our beloved prophet sallallaho alaihi wa sallam..and today these misled sects printing many books which is full of disrespect of our prophet sallallaho alaihi wasallam..qasim nanotvi, asharfali thanvi, ismail dehlvi are kafir and their kufr is printed by deoband publications themselves..and still today deoband is publishing same kufr eventhough imam ahmad raza khan fazil e baraily rahmatullah alaihi and his son mustafa raza khan rahmatullah alaihi warned them, explained them..bt ashrafali thanvi never accept his mistake and he carried the indian version of wahabism thats deobani...and the person who is saying fatiha is nt permissible?? Visiting mazar of auliyaAllah nt permissible in islam...i ask him to go to past n check is it permissible or nt..qadyani ofcorse they are qafir.as they dnt accept the our prophet sallallaho alaihi wa sallam as the final prophet..and many more gushtakhi also

Generous Saudi Donation to Wahabis

Thanks to the Aiumb for standing up againts the wahabis

Have a look at what the Wahabi Organisation In India are upto

Extensive propagation of wahabism is carried out by IRF by their Satellite Peace TV Channels; Cable TV networks and public lectures. In addition, they have trained thousands of Preachers to spread Wahabism in the name of Islam in different parts of the world.

Their official Websites claim that Peace TV programs are available free-to-air in over 150 countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia and North America and over 50 million people watch these programs.

A minimum, half a billion dollars. Aside from the start up cost of equipment, the cost of shows, and the cost of people, you have to convince cable and satellite providers to carry your channel.

Major TV Channels like CNN, BBC and others whose programs are available in many parts of the world are reported to be spending over US $ 1 billion as annual recurring expenses. This information is available on their Websites and on Internet.

Peace TV's establishment costs and annual budgets are not available on their official websites. However, looking at the standard state-of-the-art broadcasts and their lavish spending in stage programs, like their annual Peace Conferences and others, it can easily be presumed that Peace TV may be spending more than US $ 1 billion annually as recurring expenses because they are running two Channels; Peace TV English and Peace TV Urdu and using many Cable TV networks.

In addition, they are spending huge undisclosed sums on their WAHABI Da'wa activities which involves running of schools, hundreds of WAHABI Da'wa Centers in India and other countries, publications of books, CDs, WAHABI Da'wa Training Programs, maintenance of large work force and acquiring and maintaining prestigious real estate in India and other parts of the world.

THE QUESTON IS WHERE IS THIS MONEY COMMING FROM

Dr. Naik claims that all his expenses are met by individual Zakat charity. But the question is who could be giving billions of Dollars to of Zakat to Dr. Naik for his huge day to day spending.

The individual contribution of people who pay him Zakat amount, plus his lectures fee, etc., may not go beyond 2 to 5 million US Dollars annually. Then how is he managing this massive network without any known income sources?

On 31st October, 2010, in the concluding night of the Conference, Dr. Naik announced in front of hundreds of thousands of people that he is in close contact with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Naik also disclosed to the public that the King gave his Personal Royal Airplane for Saudi dignitaries to attend this conference.

He talked at length about his special relationship and closeness with the Royal family of Saudi Arabia. He elaborated how Saudi Embassy in India and Government officials in Saudi Arabia worked closely in making sure that the Saudi dignitaries attend the Conference.
When we look at Dr. Naik's closeness with Royal family, as announced by him in the Conference, and his unlimited spending prowess, it is easier to figure out the primary source of Dr. Naik's money laundering.

But, the billion dollar question is why Saudis are paying such huge unaccounted and undisclosed sums to Dr. Naik every year?

No body will pay billions of Dollars unless they have a major objective behind it.

Saudi Royal family's support to Dr Naik cannot be for Islamic propagation because the whole world knows about their questionable life style and open disregard to Islamic Sharia. As per critics, the Royal family is not only involved in financial corruption, but they are also involved, up to their feet, in worst type of moral corruption anyone can imagine.

The New York Times in its May 11, 2011 edition reported: "During the 1980s, Saudi Arabia spent some $75 billion for the propagation of Wahhabism; funding schools, mosques, and charities throughout the Islamic world, from Pakistan to Afghanistan, Yemen, Algeria and beyond. Not surprisingly, the creation of a transnational political movement (Salafism), boosted by thousands of underground Jihadist Web sites, has blown back into the kingdom. Thus the Wahhabi factory of fanatical ideas remains intact."

The New York Times further reported in the same May 11, 2011 edition: " The Saudi ruling bargain is an old partnership between the al-Saud tribe and the Wahhabi religious sect. The al-Saud clan get to stay in power and, in return, the Wahhabis get to control the country’s religious mores, mosques and education system. The Wahhabis bless the Saudi regime with legitimacy and the regime blesses them with money and a free hand on religion (Salafism). We (the US) provide the al-Sauds security, and they provide us oil. The Wahhabis provide al-Sauds with legitimacy ( to rule) and the al-Sauds provide them with money. It works really well for the al-Sauds."

Saudi Royal family is working on a long term plan to promote Wahabism, in the name of Islam. Their efforts for the past 100 years have yielded tangible results for them. Hundreds of new groups among Muslims have emerged; who have been brainwashed into following wahabi cult

Since when wahabis have attached them selves to sufism look into the website of Darul uloom deoband and see they clearly issue fatwas against going to sufi shrine, Asking for help from sufi saint

The Bigger picture

As-salam alaikum,

Firstly, I am completely against intra-Muslim sectarianism, and do not consider Qadianis as Muslims by consensus of the main representatives of the Ummah. I consider myself to be of Sufi heritage & inclination, though remember it was once a practice without a name, so it would be quite unseemly to claim to be such a high rank as a "Sufi".

With regard to this POLITICAL CONTROVERSY, this fits perfectly into the USAF Thinktank agenda. See RAND & "Moderate Muslims" plot. "DIVIDE & RULE", Sunnis vs Shias & Wahhabis vs Sufis etc. Reform (or is it DEFORM) of the Madrassa curriculum & Islam generally.

The self-appointed "Sufi" leadership has been prominent by its absence in standing up & defending the community from the decades long quite hostile ideological infiltration by our Najdi-inclined brothers e.g. Darul Ulooms,community upliftment & preservation of Dargahs & cultural heritage.

The need of the hour is to defend the WHOLE Muslim community from violent physical & ideological attacks, while unifying the brotherhood of Muslims & Mankind generally. That is not served at this critically vulnerable time in indulging in naive civil war or as USEFUL IDIOTS or UNCLE TOMS.

In the Huntingdonian dominated world of Jahil TRIBALISM, Islam is of no service to humanity when it allies itself to worshipping the idol of the nation state. The Soviet Communists had an inward-looking pliant & discredited National Islam in contrast to the wider Ummah. The proliferation of National Islams echoes Turkish Kemalist methods to divide the unity of the Ummah, how ironic in the season of Hajj?

The Military-Industrial Complex Neo-Colonialists & the Hindutvadis are the main external dangers that our "leaders" should be speaking about, but hey why not jump on the power-seeking bandwagon & kick the relatively powerless fellow Muslim rivals?
