Mufti Abul Qasim Nomani, the ‘mohtamim’ (head) of the world famous Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband, has warned students against using smartphones in the class and said that those found violating the order would be rusticated.
Usmani said that using smartphone will also be restricted even in the hostels and it’s a well-known fact that smartphones distract everyone and it was a reminder to the new students since they already had issued a warning ahead of Eid ul Zuha.
He further added that “such restrictions are followed in several other educational institutes in our country and we are not the first to introduce that. These instructions are issued to maintain discipline in the institution, It is a well-established fact that using smartphones distracts students.”
But you can use the basic phone inside Darul Uloom premises, the old students know very well what gadgets they can use inside Darul Uloom premises.
