Muzaffarnagar: Days after a leading Islamic seminary held as un-Islamic women working in offices in proximity with men, another seminary has issued a fatwa that Muslim women can work in offices but with a veil.
Mufti of Darul Iftah of Bareilvi Sharif Mohd Ayyub Alem Rizvi has issued the fatwa that Muslim women can work in institutions after wearing the veil but with some conditions.
However, the conditions were not known.
He also said in the fatwa that Muslims can work in banks under the Islamic law because the interest earned by banks is profit.
The fatwa was issued at Bareily in Uttar Pradesh to a query posed before the Iftah by the activist of Raza Muslim Mission Syed Safe Ali.
Earlier, Darul Uloom Deoband has held as un-Islamic women working in offices in proximity with men and decreed that acceptance of her earnings by a family was against the Sharia.
