Deoband Community Wikimedia (abbreviated as DCW) is a recognized user-group affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. It takes its name from the Deoband Islamic seminary, and aims at improving Wikipedia and its sister projects with knowledge and information related to but not limited to global Muslim academia, scholarship, history and culture, at a global level, in any language.

Established on 31 July 2021, DCW was recognised by the Affiliation Committee on 16 January 2022. Its initiatives include DCW Conversation Hour, Heritage Lens, and collaborative projects such as Deoband Yoruba Collaborative Project and DCW-K Editathon. In January 2024, DCW introduced the first edition of Wiki Loves Muslim Academia.

News and announcements

Deoband Community Wikimedia was established on 31 July 2021, and recognised by the Affiliations Committee on 16 January 2022. It focusses on everything related to Muslim academia, history, culture, heritage and scholarship.

DCW does not limit itself to any specific language. It focuses on its theme that transcends all the languages and as such it tries to form collaborations with the language affiliates of Wikimedia Foundation and external organisations in order to disseminate knowledge related to its theme at a global level. The Deoband Yoruba Collaborative Project was formed on 25 June 2022 to promote the theme on Yoruba language Wikipedia.

DCW actively participates in movement governance and transformational leadership in global education. In September 2022, the DCW Conversation Hour was initiated as an open conversation hour. It was subsequently standardised in March 2023 and since then happens once in a month discussing issues that affect the global free knowledge movement.
