New Delhi: Leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has directed all Madrasas and Muslim establishments to celebrate Independence Day with spirit of patriotism.
The direction also asked all of them to mark the day with zest and fervour by hoisting the national flag.
Besides, it also asked Muslims to hoist the Tricolour on their houses.
"Why is someone isolating us? This is our country, our land, our place. We want to clear any misconception about our integrity towards the country. Every Muslim should celebrate Independence Day and the flag hoisting is just one part of the celebration," Darul Uloom Deoband Press Secretary Maulana Asharaf Usmani was quoted as saying in a report published in Indian Express.
"All Madrasas across the country hoist the Tricolour. There is a misconception that madrasas don't take part in Independence Day celebrations. We want to show the correct side of the story," he added.
Preparations are in full swing in Delhi to celebrate the 69th Independence Day of India tomorrow.
