Deobandi Islam originated in India in 1867 a decade after a major Indian national apprising against the British East India Company. It was founded by Muslim clerics Maulana Qasim Nanautawi and Maulana Rashid Muhammad Gangohi to indoctrinate Muslim youth with a rigid Islamic ideology that is governed by Sharia. It is an anti-colonial movement aimed at revitalizing Islam.
Talibans Islamist ideology can be traced back to Deobandi Islam. It advocates for the notion that global jihad is a sacred duty to protect Muslims across the world and oppose any non-Islamic ideas.
