The Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a fatwa imposing a ban on plucking, trimming and shaping eyebrows terming the act as ‘un-Islamic’.

The 'fatwa' issued by Darul Ifta (department of fatwa) has also said that women should not get their hair cut as it too was against the laws of Islam.

The fatwa was issued in response to a query by a Muslim man from Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur district that stated, "Do Islamic laws allow my wife to go for eyebrow plucking and hair-cutting".
