Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a fatwa denouncing an order by a local community panchayat to socially boycott a man and his family for giving divorce to his wife.

Terming the move as “illegal” and “un-Islamic”,the dictate claimed the panchayat had no authority to issue such orders which are not only against the Shariat,but are also the violation of law of the land.

The fatwa was issued on a query by a local resident asking the seminary whether the Panchayat’s order was valid or not.

In January this year,a panchayat in Nangla village here had asked people to socially boycott the Muslim man and his family for divorcing his wife Bulkishan in December last year.
