this is not true vol 6, question 420, ala hazrat says at the end that apparently it looks as if he is doing takfir of every deobandi and wahabi. in reply to question 592 (vol 6) he says in even more clear words that the date of istaftaa is not mentioned but istiaftaa before it (that is 491) was asked in 1294 H two things are very clear from this fatwa 1) some bid'aties are not kafir and salah behind them is makruh tahrimi 2) those who have reached the level of kufr salah behind them is batil (and kufr itself) but it looks as if ala hazrat radiAllahu anh' has made takfir or every individual deobandi and wahabi, but this will be actually attesting to deobandi objection, and rejecting ala hazrat's own statement that he didn't do takifr or everybody. he replies to another istaftaa sent on 19 shabaan 1319H, question 625/626 vol 6. [QUOTE](۱) بہت لوگ ہیں ازانجملہ غیرمقلدین اور رافضی اور وُہ وہابی جن کی بدعت حدِکفر تک پہنچی ہے،سیدنا امام اعظم رضی اﷲ تعالٰی عنہ فرماتے ہیں:الصلٰوۃ خلف اھل الھواء لاتجوز (اہل ہواء کے پیچھے نماز جائز نہیں۔ت)[/QUOTE] also see reply to istaftaa 628 sent on 3 shabaan 1318 H ala hazrat raDiAllahu anh replies from this fatwa it is very clear that there are ahl al-bid'ah who are kafir/murtad and salah behind them is batil (and kufr), and ala hazrat clearly uses the phrase 'khuch ghayr kafir rafzi, wahabi, tafzili' and then says that either prayer behind them is na-jaaiz (he didn't say batil) or sin and prohibitively disliked. these are few references from those that i collected for the jumu'ah prayer issue behind ahl al-bid'ah which i shall provide to brother chisti-raza, but they are also useful to prove that when ala hazrat says that all wahabi, deobandi, rafzi are kafir/murtad then he means those whose bid'ah is kufr.
