Hafiz Muhammad Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi is a "Hafiz" of Qur'aan and not a Scholar (as in graduate of Darul-uloom) but in the eyes of certain Deobandees he is probably Shaykhul-Islam, Qubbatul-Waqt, Qautubul-Aqtaab etc etc etc
Many years ago a Brother from Pakistan contacted me and was stressed out an issue. He told me that he had done all his research and he finds Imran Khan “to be a better candidate” compared to Maulana and everyone else so should he vote for him?
I asked him to read Mufti Shafi Usmani (RA)’s book on voting to which (I think) he replied that he has and he knows that voting is a Shahadah (testimony) and it should go to the most deserving person.
But he could not bring himself to not vote for Maulana and was wrestling with his conscience. He had no doubt in his mind that Imran Khan was a better choice and more suited.
After a long time I spoke to him again and he had voted for Maulana (and not Imran Khan).
This sums up the Deobandi mind-set in Pakistan. Yes, I know the Mas’ala and I know the Fatwa and I also know the reality BUT I am a “Deobandi” first so everything else comes second.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
