Jihad Against British Government is Haram (Ahl-i-Hadith Fatwa)

Hadrat Maulana Muhammad Hussain sahib Batalawi (Rahmatullah Alayh) condemned severely the 1857 mutineers who rebelled against the British. He writes: “To fight against this government [i.e. British rule of India] or to aid those who fight against it, even though they be one's Muslim brothers, is clear treachery and Haram...The Muslims who took part in the 1857 rebellion were seditious sinners, and according to the Qur'an and Hadith they were rebels, mischief makers and wicked. Most of the ordinary people among them were like beasts.”
