Mumbai: Salim Khan, Veteran Scriptwriter while criticizing the practice of Triple Talaq said that it is against of Quranic principle. He said that those who are protesting against the Uniform Civil Code are only a few clerics. He firmly stated that it did not interfere with Islam at all.
“Triple Taalaaq arbitrarily in one sitting is against the Quranic principle. UCC is facing resistance from some clerics and might have been misunderstood by some Muslims but, it does not interfere with Islam at all. 33 % Muslims live as minorities in countries where there is no personal or Islamic law. Yet they live in peace.The larger Q is Are muslims following islam at all? If you can’t lead them dont mislead them (sic)”, Khan tweeted.
A passionate debate has emerged over the government’s stand to oppose the practice of “triple talaq” with some leading women politicians seeking its abolition, even as Muslim bodies accused the ruling dispensation of waging a “war” on their personal law.
Hazrat Maulana Wali Rehman of the Muslim Personal Law Board (MPLB) said, “The Uniform Civil Code is not good for this nation. There are so many cultures in this nation which have to be respected.”
He alleged that the commission is not independent but working as a government body. “We will boycott the law commission, the law commission is biased,” Rehman said.
