Video recording no evidence of nikah: Deoband

Islamic seminary Darul-Uloom Deoband on Saturday said videography of `nikah` cannot be produced as an evidence of the marriage and would be considered illegal under the Sharia law.

Muzaffarnagar: Two days after ruling
that divorce given in an inebriated condition is valid,
Islamic seminary Darul-Uloom Deoband on Saturday said videography of
`nikah` cannot be produced as an evidence of the marriage and
would be considered illegal under the Sharia law.

In a fatwa (edict) issued in reply to a query from a
Pakistani national whether video-recording of a `nikah` can be
used as a legal evidence to prove the marriage, the Islamic
seminary ruled against it, saying minimum two witnesses are
mandatory during the ceremony.

Darul-Uloom Deoband had earlier issued fatwa against
video-recording and photography during `nikah` and declared
them against the Sharia law.
