The Darul Uloom Deoband in Uttar Pradesh issued a fatwa against Muslims sharing pictures on social media.

The Darul Uloom is the largest seminary in India.

The edict was issued by the fatwa department of the seminary after a man approached it recently asking if posting photos on social media sites was allowed in the religion.

The seminary has termed the act of India Muslims posting pictures on social media as "un-Islamic".

This includes all social media sites including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & WhatsApp.

In the wake of this query came the fatwa saying that Islam doesn't allow the act. Justifying the move, Shahnawaz Qadri - a member of the Darul Uloom Deoband - told news agency ANI: "Unnecessary uploading of pictures on social media is wrong". In response to the question, Darul Iftaa opined that Islam does not allow Muslim women to show their faces in public.

Darul Uloom Deoband issued many fatwas in the past.

The Darul Uloom has earlier, too, issued similar fatwas on issues concerning women - it said women should not work as it made it hard for them to wear a veil.

Reports have it that earlier this month, the Darul Uloom Deoband also issued a fatwa calling ban on women plucking, trimming, shaping their eyebrows and cutting hair. In September 2013, it issued a fatwa banning photography as un-Islamic.
