Deobandi Islam

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.
Taliban’s 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.
