          Darul Uloom of Deoband, has issued a fatwa for working Muslim women, that working with men is not Islamic and they should not talk to their male counterparts in work place.Darul Uloom of Deoband is the largest Muslim seminary in India .

       The fatwa says it is unlawful for Muslim women to do any job in government or private institutions that entails men and women working together and women having to talk to men without the veil.The Deoband clerics say that it is mentioned in the Shariat that women should wear the veil in office and should not mix with male colleagues.

           The fatwa has been welcomed by Muslim clerics of other schools of thought and Islam.Yet most Muslim women didn't accept it saying Fatwa must not harm their living and earning.
     I feel the Fatwa issued should be looking on the days women are gearing to find job themselves and find some living ,religions should encourage good things in society rather than causing trouble and confusion to common people.
