Band, Baaja In Muslim Weddings 'Un-Islamic', Say Clerics in UP's Deoband
Saharanpur (Uttar Pradesh):  Clerics in Uttar Pradesh's Deoband, home to Darul Uloom - the highest seat of Islamic learning in India - have said they will not preside over weddings where there is music. Wedding bands with song and dance, a tradition in Indian weddings, are 'un-Islamic', said a top cleric on Monday.

'City Qazi' Mufti Azhar Hussain told ANI news agency, "We will not conduct 'nikah' in weddings where music and dance is happening and DJ is there. This is against Islam; (we) will boycott such weddings. If the music and dance happens before the nikah ceremony and the qazi does not know then it is different."

Earlier too, Muslim clerics had raised objections to  music in weddings, calling it an unnecessary financial burden.

Clerics from Kota in Rajasthan have already banned DJs, loud music and wedding bands at Muslim weddings.
