Deobandi Fatwa: To Abstain from Paan and Red Clothes in Muharram is a Type of Shirk!

The Deobandi mullah Ashraf Ali Thanwi has written that among the actions which constitute Ashraak Fil Aadah (Shirk in Habits) are to abstain from eating Paan and wearing red clothes during the sacred month of Muharram.

This in spite of the fact that wearing red clothes is forbidden in Islam:

From Ibn ‘Abbaas, who said: “I was forbidden (to wear) red garments and gold rings, and to recite Qur’aan in rukoo’.” (Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, no. 5171. Imaam al-Albaani said: its isnaad is saheeh. Saheeh Sunan al-Nasaa’i, 1068).

However, below you can see that Ashraf Thanwi has issued a fatwa that to abstain from eating Paan (which is something bad and should be avoided Muharram or not) and to abstain from wearing red clothes in Muharram is a kind of Shirk!
