Hakim al-Ummah Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (ra) said:

In some places, a person who prohibits customs and acts which are in conflict with the Shari’ah, is branded a Wahhabi. One pious Alim [scholar] saw an[other] Alim wearing a ring of gold. When his attention was drawn to this violation of the Shari’ah, he responded, ”You are a Wahhabi.”
