Fatwa against singing Vande Mataram

via www.timesofindia.com published on June 8, 2006

HYDERABAD: With the new academic year set to start next week and the admission process at its peak, several city–based muftis issued a fatwa on Tuesday asking Muslims not to admit their children in schools where Vande Mataram is sung every morning. Children who are already studying in such institutions must be immediately shifted to other schools, the fatwa ordered.

Muftis, including All–India Sunni Ulema Board president Moulana Syed Shah Badruddin Qadri Aljeelani, Moulana Mohammed Hasnuddin, Moulana Mohammed Mastan Ali, Nazima Aziz and Rizwana Zarreen of Jamiat–ul–Mominath, jointly issued the fatwa when some parents approached them seeking a shariah ruling on Vande Mataram. Several schools in the city start their day with a recital of the national song. “Vande Mataram was written by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.

It emphasises that Indians treat their land as God. Ours is a secular country. Asking Muslims to do something like this cannot be advocated,” Moulana Badruddin Qadri Aljeelani told TOI after issuing the fatwa.

Even if these institutions offer quality education, they cannot force students to violate the shariah norms. Muslims cannot compromise on Kalma–e–Tayyaba, the basic pillar of Islam which says there is only one God and Mohammed is the Prophet, he added.

Parents sending their children to such schools are committing the ‘Gunaah–e–Kabira’. Hence, stay away from schools which are not secular, advised Mastan Ali. According to Islam, there is only one God.

The moment one starts believing in more than one God, it is treated as Shirk (anti–Islam), said Moulana Mufti Hasnuddin. School authorities should not force Muslim children to either recite Vande Mataram or any other rendition which is prohibited in Islam, Mastan Ali added.

    In the name of ‘secularism’, minorities in India have been given a long rope, and they are using it to ‘hang’ Nationalism.Muslims have got their ‘share’ of Akhand Bharat.It is better they go and live in Pakistan.Hindus who want to live in India should be allowed their choice.But unpatriotism should not be encouraged at any cost. 5

    If they cannot stand Vandemataram, then why do they stay in this land?
    Thay can go to Pakistan or Bangladesh.

    What shame! A R Rehman sang Vandemataram, Many muslim soldiers died chanting Vandemataram, Freedom fighters and martyrs like Ashfaqhullah Khan died shouting Vandemataram…. 5

    muslims do not respect their mother hence they are not in a position to respect their mother. The reason being, mother is women. Women do not have any respect in Islam. By doing namaskars to mother country, they may be tempted to honour ones own mother, which no musalman wants to do so. Moreover giving honour to mother, this may induce to respect other women also, but they prefer to takethe women to the bed and hence they have to look atthe women to adorn only in the bed. Like Jahangir, they prefer to enjoy for sometime and give to other who has to passon to others. They do not want to come out of the stoneage.
