Putting water in the nose during ghusal while fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If one is making a fardh ghusl whilst in the state of fasting, does one have to wash the nose upto the soft bone?


A: One will have to put water into the nostrils, however one should not exert while washing the nose so that water does not go down the nostrils.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
