Hyderabad: Supporting Muslim Personal Law Board on Uniform Civil Code issue, former MP and senior communist leader Mr. Syed Aziz Pasha said that protest meetings, rallies and sit-ins will help communal forces succeed in their nefarious plans hence we should work according to the strategy announced by Muslim Personal Law Board to protest against Uniform Civil Code and run large scale signature campaign against it.
Addressing a round table conference organised by All India Muslim Minority Organisation, at BC Bhawan Himayatnagar on the topic of welfare and prosperity of Muslims and 12 percent reservations, Mr. Syed Aziz Pasha said Uniform Civil Code and triple Talaq are two different issues. Central government is trying to link them so that it can easily exploit minority votes during proposed Uttar Pradesh elections.
Mr. Aziz Pasha advised to finalise protest programmes to oppose Uniform Civil Code by adopting democratic means. As far a Talaq issue is concerned the rate of divorce among Muslims is 23 pc while in Hindus it is 65 pc and it is the highest in Gujarat state. He said linking Talaq issue with Uniform Civil Code is violation of Indian Constitution.
