Srinagar Muslims during display of a relic
from Abdul Qadir Jeelani
Bhopal: Secretary of Muslim Personal Law Board (Jadeed) Maulana Mohammad Hashmi, while strongly opposing the Model nikahnama prepared by AIMPLB described it against Shari’at. He said that AIMPLB has no authority to change the traditions of the Holy Qur’an and Hadiths which are prevalent for 1400 years, adding that the Board instead of using the word ‘Qur’an’, has used words like ‘nikahnama’ which can never be tolerated. He blamed the Board of being a puppet of Christians and Jews and said that Shari’at laws are being tampered under a conspiracy. He also criticised AIMPLB for its instruction that girls should be married off at the age of fifteen and for unnecessarily raising the problem of talaq which, on an average, is virtually nil and which will give a wrong message to Muslims as well as to non-Muslims. He clarified that MPLB (Jadeed) was formed because AIMPLB was going against Shari’at and that the decisions taken by this Board at Bhopal are not at all acceptable to them.
