BAREILLY: On the occasion of 36th Urs-E-Noori, under the guidance and mentor-ship of AlHaj Subhan Raza Khan, Former Sajjada Nasheen (Head) of Dargah Ala Hazrat and the present Sajjada Nasheen of the Dargah, Hazrat Ahsan Raza Khan, it has been resolved that the Bareilly Ulemas shall united stand against the Uniform Civil Code.
After the heat that the triple talaq issue has caught, Mufti Azam E Hind, Mufti Akhtar Raza Khan, also known as Azhari Miyaan, one of the most revered and reputed Indian Muftis, has also declared the united opposition of the Uniform Civil Code.
On Friday, while delivering the sermon, Azhari Miyaan said the Quran and Hadith prove that the law of the triple talaq is Islamic and it is according to this Islamic Law that cases have been delivered in the past years.
He also added that hindrance in the Islamic law would only amount to unjust being done to Muslims.
Barelvi Ulemas at Urs-E-Noori, have unanimously taken a stand to oppose the Personal Law Bill as a change in the governance of Muslims would mean a change in their basic functioning as Muslims.
When one calls for secularism, one is well aware of the diversity that needs to be addressed. To that thought, Uniform Civil Code is a hampering agent when it restricts the free-will of a particular community to be governed according to their religious laws.
Mufti Saleem Noori, Spokesperson, Dargah Ala Hazrat speaking to TimesHeadline.com said, “The Uniform Civil Code under the Modi government has actually put the Muslim Community into a problem. We, at Dargah Ala Hazrat have resolved to initiate a drive against the code, just like we did during the Emergency period, against forced sterilization.”
Adding to support the stand, Amir Hussain Tehsini, National Treasurer, MSO(Muslim Student Organisation) said to TimesHeadline.com, “The interpretation of the word Talaq is to set free. By the Islamic perspective, Talaq or divorce means the immediate annulment of marriage as a pact between two individuals. The Shariah or the Islamic Law aims to establish a healthy and divine relationship called marriage, but if for certain reasons the relationship fails, there is no need to prolong the relation under stress, anxiety and false hopes.”
Several Muslim organisations have come to this consensus that the Uniform Civil Code is a big NO-NO.
