Barelvi sect opposes govt's stand on triple talaq, UCC

Press Trust of India  |  Bareilly 

The Barelvi sect of Muslims has opposed the Centre's stand on 'triple talaq' and the questionnaire by panel on Uniform Civil Code (UCC), terming it is an infringement of personal laws and rights of minorities under the Constitution.

Barelvi is a major sect of Muslims India.



After a meeting of clerics held at Dargah Ala Hazrat here last night, its former 'sajjada nasheen' (hereditary administrator) and patron Mufti Akhtar Raza Khan in a statement issued today criticised the central government's affidavit submitted in the apex and said the UCC questionnaire will be boycotted.

"As per the Quran and Hadis, triple talaq is right in principle but according to Islam, pronouncing talaq thrice in one breath is not considered as good and Shariat courts give verdict on these issues in this light," he said.

Filing an affidavit in the Supreme in this regard is an infringement of the personal laws and also the rights of the minorities given under the Constitution, he alleged.

Khan said if the central government "does not retract" from giving unnecessary stress on the issue, the Shariat Council of will be forced to launch an agitation against it.

The spokesman of the Ala Hazrat Dargah, Mufti Mohammad Salim Noori, alleged that the central government was trying to revive its old issue of Uniform Civil Code in the garb of triple talaq, which is not good for the country.

The ulemas who took part in yesterday's meeting alleged that Muslim women were being "instigated against Islam" and the real aim of such people was to create internal differences on sensitive issues so as to end the Muslim personal .

Muslim women should have faith in Islamic shariat and take their divorce related issues in Shariat courts, they stressed.
