AIMPLB to oppose Wakf Amendment Bill, Right to Education Act

Andhra Pradesh
Hyderabad, April 25: Muslims all over the country would launch agitation against any attempt to interfere in the Muslim Sharia, warned Moulana Syed Mohammad Hasan Rabe Nadvi, President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), here.

Nadvi exhorted the Muslims to join AIMPLB in its efforts to prevent changes in the Muslim personal laws, and also to oppose Wakf Amendment Bill - 2010 and Right to Education Act 2009 which he said were defective and went "against the interests" of the community.

AIMPLB is opposed to some provisions in Right to Education Act which have a bearing on education in Madarassas.

Addressing a public meeting here last night, he urged the Muslim community to resist any move in the form of bills and amendments which amounted to changing shariat law.

The meeting was organised by the All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) on the sidelines of the two-day executive committee meeting of the AIMPLB.

The executive committee discussed the Babri-Masjid demolition case and other issues including maintenance for divorced Muslim women.

The committee has appealed to the Chief Justice of India to form a larger bench to reconsider the Shah Bano case, and also review the Delhi High Court judgement legalising homosexuality.
