Boycott questionnaire on Uniform Civil Code: TMS

Tehreek Muslim Shabban has announced its full support to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s call for boycott of Law Commission’s questionnaire on Uniform Civil Code.


In a media statement, TMS president Mohammed Mushtaq Mallik said that the AIMPLB had taken a correct and timely decision on boycotting the questionnaire. He said that the BJP-led led NDA Government has been trying to introduce Uniform Civil Code for political gains. He said that the Muslims would never tolerate any interference in the Shariyat or Personal Law and the same would be conveyed to the Central Government through Tahafuz-e-Shariyat Conference being held in Hyderabad on November 13.


Mushtaq Mallik informed that several national leaders, belonging to different religious, social and political organisations, will participate in the Tahafuz-e-Shariyat Conference at Exhibition Grounds on November 13. As a prelude, a consultative session of Muslims MPs, MLAs and intellectuals, is being held in Hyderabad on October 22. The session would be presided by Siasat Urdu Daily Editor-in-Chief Zahed Ali Khan. “We are expecting huge participation in the conference from neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra. Nearly one lakh people from all districts of Telangana and other neighbouring States will also attend the conference,” he informed.

            The TMS president said public meetings were being held across the four States on Tahafuz-e-Shariyat. The first meeting will be held in Bidar district of Karnataka on October 16. He said representatives of TMS, Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiatul Ulema, Jamiatul Mashaiqeen and other religious and political leaders would address the meeting in Bidar. Similarly, many events have been lined up as a run-up to the main conference on Tahafuz-e-Shariyat.

            Mushtaq Mallik said that the TMS would carry forward the All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s message on boycotting Law Commission’s questionnaire. (NSS)
