Terming wedding bands ‘un-Islamic’, Darul Uloom Deoband said on Monday that they will not solemnise Muslim marriages where music and dance are part of the wedding as it is against Islam.

Speaking to ANI, ‘City Qazi’ Mufti Azhar Hussain said, “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 happened before the nikah ceremony and the qazi did not know about it, then it is different.”

Earlier as well, Muslim clerics had raised objections on the usage of music in weddings terming it financial burden and wastage. Clerics of Kota in Rajasthan had already imposed a ban on DJs, loud music and wedding bands at Muslim weddings.
