Mumbai: Soon after the Centre took its stand on triple talaq in the Supreme Court, the Muslim Personal Law Board decided to boycott the questionnaire on Uniform Civil Code, saying that India's diversity of cultures needs to be respected. Veteran writer Salim Khan took to Twitter on Monday to express his views on the UCC and triple talaq.
Here’s what Khan tweeted: “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 cant lead them dont mislead them (sic).”
Father of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, Salim, has been extremely vocal on Twitter. Without mincing his words, he expresses his views on various concerning issues on the micro-blogging site.
The NDA government-led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked the Law Commission to examine the implications of implementing the Uniform Civil Code across the country, a few days back and since then there has been a huge debate on the issue.
“The Uniform Civil Code is not good for this nation. There are so many cultures in this nation which have to be respected,” Hazrat Maulana Wali Rehman of the Muslim Personal Law Board (MPLB) said.
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.
