Deoband mulls fatwa against French goods
25 Jun 2009, Manjari Mishra, TNN
LUCKNOW: The Islamic seminary of Dar-ul-Uloom Deoband is contemplating a fatwa against buying goods made in France to protest the anti-burqa  comments of French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

Mufti Maulana Arshad Faruqui of Dar-ul-Ufba, the fatwa department of the seminary, said it would also call for a boycott of Sarkozy. “If necessary, an edict may be issued to all followers ordering them to shun French merchandise,” Maulana Faruqui said.

He said the comment was “one of the most shameful chapters of the mankind”. By labelling burqa, ‘naqab’ or ‘purdah’ as a symbol of female subjugation, the French president has “violated” the law of his own country, which guarantees its citizens the right to practice their religion unhindered, he added.

“The utterances are an evil ploy aimed at bringing disrepute to France.” Faruqui said the statement delivered in the French parliament reeks of a “conspiracy against Christianity too” as even Virgin Mary has always been painted or sculpted with her head covered.
