A day after Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat called for madrasas in the state to put up a portrait of PM Modi within their premises, Chairman of Darul Uloom fatwa department, Mufti Arshad Farooqui said the chief minister's statements were against Sharia 

Arshad Farooqi also said that the government should think before issuing orders which influence Sharia, religion, and sentiments. 

He said, "It's against Sharia. There had never been an order to put photos of any PM ever, why now? The government must think before issuing orders which affect Sharia, religion, and sentiments."

Earlier the Uttarakhand chief minister had ordered all the madrasas in the state to put up a portrait of PM Modi within their premises. He also criticised the ones that don't agree to comply with the "established practice", stating that madrasas should give up their conservatism on the issue.

On the other hand, the madrasas in BJP-ruled states had declined to put up PM Modi's portrait in their premises. Madrasa officials noted that Islam does not allow the installation of any living person's portrait within a madrasa. premises.
