Mustafa Raza Khan Qadri (1892–1981) was an Indian Muslim scholar and author, and leader of the Barelvi movement following the death of its founder, his father Ahmed Raza Khan.[2] He wrote several books on Islam in Arabic, Urdu, Persian, and announced judgments on several thousand Islamic problems in his compilation of fatawa Fatawa-e-Mustafwia. Thousands of Islamic scholars were counted as his spiritual successors.[3] He was the main leader of the All India Jamaat Raza-e-Mustafa in Bareilly, which opposed the Shuddhi movement to convert Muslims to Hinduism in pre-Partition India.[3][4] During the time of emergency[clarification needed] in India, he issued a fatwa against vasectomy and argued[why?] against then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.[5][6]
