Press Note
 
Shaikhul Hadith Maulana Mufti Abul Qasim Nomani, the Vice Chancellor (Mohtamim) of Darul Uloom Deoband, while expressing his concern over the campaign against the Tablighi Jamaat by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), said that Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Ilyas (ra) was one of the disciples of Shaikhul Hind Hazrat Maulana Mahmood Hassan (ra). He founded the Tablighi Jamaat under which the sincere efforts of the Akabir (elders) have been successful on religious practices and social well being of people. Despite small differences, the Jamaat is working on its mission and is spread across the globe. Allegations of polytheism, heresy and terrorism against the Tablighi Jamaat in general and groups or individuals associated with it are absolutely meaningless and baseless. Darul Uloom Deoband condemns such allegations and appeals to Saudi Arabia to reconsider its stand and refrain from such campaign against Tablighi Jamaat.
