The first preparatory meeting will be held in Shimla Garden, Nalgonda crossroads in the city at 10.30 AM on August 6. Besides Hyderabad, religious leaders from Karimnagar, Medak, Warangal, Mahabubnagar, Adilabad of Telangana, Kurnool, Kadapa and Anantapur of Andhra Pradesh and Bidar, Humnabad, Basvakalyan, Chutguppa, Gulbarga and Raichur of Karnataka have confirmed their participation in the preparatory meeting.
The Tahafuz-e-Shariyat conference is likely to be held in the month of October. Representatives of all Khankhas, Dargahs, Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiyat-ul-Ulema, ulemas of Devband, Bareili, Ahle Sunnat-ul-Jamaat and other schools of thought will attend the conference. Office bearers of All India Muslim Personal Law Board too will participate in the proposed conference.
Mushtaq Mallik informed that the Tahafuz-e-Shariyat Conference would hold detailed discussions on the proposed Uniform Civil Code and its implications on Indian Muslims. He alleged that the BJP-led NDA Government was conspiring to impose Hindu Civil Code across the country in the guise of Uniform Civil Code. He said Muslims would never allow any changes in their Personal Law which is based on Shariah. He said a nationwide campaign would be launched against the proposed Uniform Civil Code which is being used as a tool by some communal forces to disturb peace in the country. (INN)
