Hyderabad: ‘We will carry out a campaign to educate Muslims about Islam and the Sharia (Muslim personal law) in the coming days and those opposing the Sharia within the community will be considered non-Muslims,’ said the Sharia Faisla Board (SFB), body of prominent religious and social Muslim organizations in Telangana on Thursday.
“We will start this programme in Hyderabad and conduct it across south India. The Supreme Court’s ruling has opened the door for interference in our religion,” said Mushtaq Mallik, president, Muslim Shabban Tahreek, while addressing a press conference.
Mallik said that the SFB will carry out a door-to-door programme starting with Hyderabad to explain Muslims about Islamic jurisprudence. “Those who oppose, question or do not accept the Sharia or Islam, we will explain these things to them also. If they still are not convinced, then they will be ex-communicated from the religion and not be considered as Muslims,” he added.
Both Mallik and Moulana Yousuf Zayed, chairman, Telangana Ulema Council (TUC), said that the RSS and the Bhartiya Janata party (BJP) are trying to interfere in the Muslim personal laws (Sharia).
“This is one of the ways they want to push the demand for the Uniform Civil Code,” alleged Mallik.
