Law Commission's questionnaires on Uniform Civil Code arbitrary, illegal: Chairman of Minority Commission

ANI  |  Hyderabad (Telangana) [India] 

Asserting that is a multi-cultural and a multi-religious society which gives constitutional rights to different communities, Chairman of the state's Minority Commission, Abaid Rasool, on Thursday said the questionnaire prepared by the Commission seeking public opinion over the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code would create mistrust among communities.

Extending support to the Muslim Personal Board (MPLB) over the boycott of Uniform Civil Code, Rasool said, "Union Commission has given out a circular with a questionnaire asking for people to file their objections for points, I have read the circular and I find it to be very sparse without much information being sought off and basically it is targeting the Muslim and Christian minorities in pointing out the religious beliefs and I appeal to the Commission of to withdraw from the circular immediately," Rasool told ANI.

He further said that drafting questions and pointing it to one community and asking for their response is arbitrary, illegal and has to be withdrawn immediately.

"The government is trying to poke a pin into the community to see their reaction," Rasool said

The MPLB, today, said that they will boycott the Uniform Civil as they feel it is not good for the nation.

"We will boycott the questionnaire sent by the Commission and we have decided that Muslims of the country will not answer this question as it is not acceptable and not good for the nation," Hazrat Maulana Mohammad Wali Rahmani of the Muslim Personal Board (MPLB) said at a press conference here.

Rahmani pointed out that there are number of people living in this country belonging from different cultures and said that to bind the culture under one unique code is not acceptable.

The Commission, last week, sought public opinion on the exercise of reforming family laws of all religions. The commission has reportedly appealed to members of religious, minority and social groups, non-government organisations, to present their views through a questionnaire on a range of issues, including the practice of triple talaq, the right to property for a woman citizen and polygamy.
