Today, a Deoband cleric has issued a fatwa against newly elected TMC MP Nusrat Jahan for marrying outside her religion and wearing the Hindu adornments of a married woman like Sindoor and Mangalsutra.

Cleric Mufti Asad Wasmi said, “After investigation, we got to know that she married into the Jain religion, Islam says that a Muslim can only marry a Muslim. Second, I want to say that Nusrat Jahan is an actor and these actors do not care about religion. They do what they feel like doing. This is what she showcased in Parliament”.

Wasmi also added that he doesn’t want to interfere in her life but he just informed her what Shariat says with the help of media.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Sadhvi Prachi came out in support of Nusrat Jahan. She said, “If a Muslim woman marries a Hindu and wears a Bindi, Bichhwe (toe rings), Mangalsutra, the Muslim clerics call it haraam. I feel sorry for their intellect but many Muslim men trap our Hindu daughters in the name of love jihad and ask them to wear the burqa, then that is not haram. That is justified for them.”

Deoband clerics have retorted to Sadhvi Prachi’s claims calling her a ‘Belagaam’ woman who does not know anything about Islam. They have also added that Islam is the religion of love and peace.

After the elections, Nusrat Jahan had a Jain wedding. While taking oath at the Parliament, she was seen wearing all the traditional adornments of a Hindu married woman, like the Sindoor, Mangalsutra and Bindi. She had already been facing Islamist trolls, who were angered by the fact that she married outside her community. While taking her oath, she took the name of ‘Ishwar’ and ended with phrases such as Vande Mataram, Jai Hind and Joi Bangla.

It is notable here that the Darul Uloom Deoband is known for its outlandish Fatwas. It has earlier banned music and DJs during weddings. It had also issued dictats declaring that Muslim parents should not let their children marry people working in the banking and insurance sector because such businesses are ‘haram’. Last year, they had declared the nail polish as ‘Un Islamic’.
