DARUL ULOOM DEOBAND
  • Named after the city of its origin, the north Indian town of Deoband, the madrasa was founded in 1867 by Moulana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi and Moulana Qasim Nanautvi. 

  • The objective of its establishment was to preserve Muslim identity and heritage in the face of British imperialism, which had replaced the rule of the Mughals.
