Muzaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh), April 4, 2021-
A prominent publisher of school textbooks and examination guides in Uttar Pradesh has tendered an unconditional apology and has agreed to recall all the copies carrying imaginary photographs of Prophet Muhammad after objection from Islamic seminary Darul Uloom in Deoband.

According to most Islamic scholars, pictorial depiction of the Prophet is prohibited in the religion.

The managing director of the publishing house has written a letter to Saharanpur MP Fazlur Rehman telling him that it was an ‘inadvertent error and the books have been recalled from the market.

This came a day after the Islamic seminary raised objection to the imaginary photograph and demanded action against the publisher.

Earlier, the Saharanpur MP and scores of Deoband clerics had approached administration seeking action against the company for hurting the religious sentiments.

They had also submitted a memorandum addressed to the President.

Vice-chancellor of the seminary, Maulana Abul Qasim Nomani, said, “There is no picture of Prophet Muhammad, and publishing an imaginary image is condemnable. We strongly condemn it. Administration and government should take strong action against the publishing house.”

When contacted, MP Fazlur Rehman said, “We have received an apology letter from the publishing house. They have assured us that all books have been removed from the market and destroyed. I think the controversy ends now”. (Agency)

Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
