Islamic scholars and clergymen of all Muslim sects including Sunnis, Barelvis, Deobandis, Ahlehadis, Shias came under the banner of All India Muslim Majlise -e-Muushawarat (AIMIMM) on Monday to register strong protest against the Centre's views on 'triple talaq'.The move comes close on the heels of the stand of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which has strongly decided to protest tooth and nail the move of the Narendra Modi government and also asked the government to go in for a referendum on this issue. The meeting in Mumbai was chaired by Maulana Sayed Mohamed Khalid Ashraf, the President of Daruloom Mohamdiya. Prominent among them who attended the meeting include Maulana Zaherudin Khan, President, All India Ulema Council, Naveed Hamid President, Mushwarat, Mujtaba Farooq, General Secretary, Mushawarat, Maulana Sayed Athar Ali, Executive Committee member, All India Muslim Personal Law Board, Maulana Nusrat, Vice President, All India Jamiat Islami, Maulana Mohd Islam, Imam of internationally-famous Haji Ali Dargah, Maulana Asgar Imam Salfi (Ahlehadis) Maulana Asgar Haideri, noted Shia scholar and others."Any interference in Muslim Personal Law will not be tolerated. Any efforts to impose a Common Civil Code in the name of social reform and gender justice will prove counterproductive," they said in a joint statement. "The government should respect this position of Muslims instead of conspiring to put an end to it. The government cannot force Muslims to follow other communities in issues related to personal laws as it would amount to an infringement on their fundamental rights. Those clamoring against triple talaq and demanding a ban on polygamy are a miniscule minority and are not representative of the Indian Muslim community," said Maulana Sayed Mohamed Khalid Ashraf.MORE UNI AAA SHK 1640
