TV Programme Defending Deobandee’s

Question ID: 19778

You may have heard of brother Mu’adh Khan from UK (aka Colonel). He has connection with Deobandee Ulama and is mostly well regarded.

His latest idea or fad (call it what you will) is to do a TV Documentary on Deobandees in light of the media attack on Deobandees in the UK.

He says he needs to do something for the Ummah right now and has requested sisters to come forward who wish to speak on camera.

On his Twitter account he is moaning to Muftis that he can’t get hold of any women for the documentary.

Surely a TV programme involving at least the voice and possibly the face of a ghayr mahram is impermissible or am I missing some Fiqh that the self-styled scholar has tapped in to?

What about the use of batil medium to promote Haq?

Anyway he has requested Du’as.

We have forthwith provided the necessary evidential links of Mu’adh Khan’s postings.

What is the Shar’i ruling regarding such a documentary?

Who does he want to convince.
Assure him that the enemies of Islaam know full well who or what the Deobandis stand for.
Especially the British – for they know what role the Ulema-e-Deoband played in removing then from India.
This media form should not be used.
Why does he want women? This will create more confusion.
He should avoid.
