Leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband, in a fatwa, has asked Muslims to hoist national flag on their houses and establishments on Independence Day and also appealed to them to celebrate the occasion with great spirit of patriotism.

Ashraf Usmani, spokesperson of the seminary said that "in the struggle for India's freedom, the Ulemas (Islamic religious leaders) of Darul Uloom have played prominent roles".

The call for 'Complete Independence' was "given by Darul Uloom", which later turned into the 'Purna Swaraj' movement, he said.
