AIMPLB urges govt to safeguard Muslim personal law
Bangalore: The Muslim law board Saturday
appealed to the government to take remedial measures to
protect and safeguard the Muslim Personal Law which it felt
was "under threat now".
In a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh,
President Pratibha Patil and the Chief Justice of India, the
All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) urged them to
prohibit and prevent courts from interpreting Muslim Personal
Law according to their notions and "neglecting the
authoritative sources of the AIMPLB on the subject.
"The need of the hour to restore the original scheme
of the Constitution, which is to leave the personal law
Earlier at a seminar, the AIMPLB lamented that courts
were generally not following the "historic decisions" of the
Indian judiciary and "are interpreting, particularly, the
rules of Muslim Personal Law, without referring to recognised
and authoritative source of it, imparting their own notions
resulting in social imbalances in Muslim society".
