In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
This program is meant to be aired in the first week of April, as it has now become common knowledge that BBC has contacted many Deobandi Ulama, Institutions and given them the chance to appear on the program. It is unfortunate that the contents of some of these letters have been leaked to the wider Muslim community and speculation is rife amongst British Muslims.
The first part of response from Deobandi Ulama is addressing our fellow Muslims and this should be made public tonight, Insha'Allah.
The later parts of the response is being consulted and formulated behind the scenes and we will make it public as directed by the respected Ulama and legal experts.
