The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has attacked Narendra Modi government over its announcement of bringing a Uniform Civil Law to end the triple talaq and polygamy practices. Hazrat maulana Wali Rahmani said, “We will oppose the Uniform Civil Code all over the country.”
This comes in less than a week after the Law Commission had put forward the question of abolishing the practice of triple talaq and making uniform civil code optional the board on Thursday announced its boycott of the Law Commission’s questionnaire.
Addressing the media, AIMPLB announced its boycott of Law Commission’s proposal saying,”Uniform Civil Code is not good for this nation. There are so many cultures in this nation and those have to be respected”
The member also said that Muslims equally participated in India’s freedom struggle, but their participation is always underestimated.
The Law Commission asked questions pertaining to the existing personal laws and if the customary practices needed proper codification and whether it would benefit people. It has also sought to know whether the uniform code should include subjects like divorce, marriage, adoption, child custody, succession and inheritance.
