Muzaffarnagar: Leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a fatwa against manufacturing and selling of firecrackers, saying it was against Sharia law.

Manufacturing and selling of firecrackers is against Sharia law, and bursting of crackers is misuse of money, the fatwa said, adding that men who misuse money are the "brothers of devil."

The fatwa was issued on a query from a man involved in the business of manufacturing firecrackers.

A large number of Muslims are involved in manufacturing firecrackers in the country.
