Mufti A3zdham Hind went for Hajj without a photo on his passport after having been granted a special permission for a special passport by indira gandhi herself (afaik). he (rahimahullah), afaik, stated that he wouldn't go for Hajj if it was based on a haram act of having his picture taken. Shaykh Ataullah Bandalwi was equally strict that he did not go for Hajj because the photo is must for passports, visas etc. (and he probably got no access to such a special passport as Mufti A3zdham had gotten) So now why don't so many desi Ridawi scholars follow these two role models of Ridawiyyat? They go for 1) first Hajj (ok, this is fard for those who can afford it) 2) second and subsequent Hajj's (not fard) 3) so many multiple 3umrah's (not fard), AND 4) also travel all over the world to deliver lectures and speeches and etc. (not fard at all. they can deliver their message through books, literature, conference calls, phone links etc.) so now what is the status of all these so many desi Ridawi scholars other than Huzur Mufti A3zdham Hind and Shaykh Ataullah?
