Upendra Bharti | HENB | New Delhi | Oct 13, 2016:: While Govt of India is advancing to implement a Uniform Civil Code in the country through an opinion drive initiated by Law Commission of India, the Sharia propagator Muslim Personal Law Board goes against the Govt by raising the ‘triple talaq’ issue.
The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said on Thursday that a Law Commission questionnaire, to gauge public opinion on triple talaq and other anti-women practices across religions, is a “fraud”, that it will boycott it and that a uniform civil code is not good for India.
The Muslim Law Board also said that the law commission isn’t acting independently and is instead acting at the behest of the Centre, which last week opposed the practice of triple talaq in the Supreme Court and said it can’t be regarded as an essential part of religion.
“A uniform civil code is not good for this nation. There’re so many cultures in this nation, (they) have to be respected. India can’t impose a single ideology,” said the Board’s Hazrat Maulana Wali Rahmani at a press briefing today.
The Commission in its questionnaire asks whether triple talaq – which according to Islamic law based on the Koran permits a husband to pronounce talaq three times to instantly divorce his wife – should be abolished altogether, retained only in customs without legal sanctity, or retained with suitable amendments.
The Muslim Law Board has consistently said that triple talaq is a ‘personal law’ and hence cannot be modified by the Centre.
“We are living in this country with an agreement held by the constitution. The constitution has made us live and practice our religion. In America everyone follows their personal laws and identity, how come our nation doesn’t want to follow their steps in this matter?” Rahmani said.
The Centre has countered the claim of the Muslim Law Board and said, “practices of triple talaq, polygamy and nikah halala cannot be regarded as essential part of religion and hence get no protection under fundamental right to religion.”
Rahmani and other Board officials today also indicated that they feel Muslims are discriminated against.
“Muslims equally participated in India’s freedom struggle, but their participation is always underestimated,” a Board official said.
The Commission, though, said its questionnaire asks for opinion on practices across religions – not just Islam – that many call anti-women, Justice BS Chauhan, chairman of the Law Commission, told in a press brief earlier.
For example, while one question on the list of 16 is about triple talaq, another is asking the public what steps are needed to “ensure that Hindu women are better able to exercise their right to property, which is often bequeathed to sons under customary practices”.
Justice B S Chauhan, chairman of the Law Commission, told media that formulating the questions was an elaborate affair involving several meetings of the Commission, in addition to consultations with numerous experts in the field.
“It took us two months to frame the questions keeping in mind prevailing customs and practices in different religions to elicit meaningful responses from the public,” he said.
In its appeal The Law Commission of India (See here http://lawcommissionofindia.nic.in/questionnaire.pdf and send your suggestion to curb Islamic move against it) welcomes, “all concerned to engage with us on the comprehensive exercise of revision and reforms of family laws. as the article 44 of the Indian constitution provides that, ‘the state shall endeavour as to provide for its citizens a uniform civil code throughout the territory of India’.”
A communal section of Muslim people of India wants to propagate Sharia Law above the constitution and hence, always wants to contradict with the uniform civil code arbitrarily.
While, Muslims of India do prefer Indian Penal code instead of Sharia punishment for criminal activities, (i.e. amputation of hands and legs, stoning to kill, public whipping and execution). Muslims of India prefer interest from Banks through banking laws, but they want Sharia for polygamy, triple talaq etc. to encroach and trash the women rights and liberties in a very Islamic way. The double faced Ulemas and Imams in AIMPLB uphold the Sharia in India above the Constitution in force, whimsically.
As, Govt of India wants to assure a Uniform Civil Code in India apropos of Article 44 of Indian Constitution, all the law abiding citizens and Sharia-aware people must send their suggestions to Law Commission’s opinion seeking drive to curb the Sharia move to establish a uniform civil code in India.
Introducing Uniform Civil Code is a most important legal move in this country to prevent further Islamisation of India, while a major part of the world is also denouncing the Sharia laws in various countries in Europe, America and Australia. China has also banned the Sharia provisions in their land and India must introduce a Uniform Civil Code while Sharia and Halal are two most dangerous components for the spread of Islamic State every where in this globe.
India should join a strong movement for the initiative of Law Commission for introducing a Uniform Civil Code in India.
In a conversation to HENB Legal desk, Upananda Brahmachari, the Hindutva exponent and Editor, Hindu Existence told, “Sharia is a hell for the modern and liberal civilization. Through Sharia, Halal and Jihad, the Radical Islam is trying to destroy non-Muslims in India and in the rest of the world. India is most concerned to Jihadi Terrorism and Islamic State. India must fight against Radical Islam and worst Sharia propagation. Uniform Civil code is a need of the hour in India. We must support this good cause initiated by the Govt of India.”
