AIMPLB to meet UP CM for notification in Ayodhya case
Lucknow: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s (AIMPLB) executive committee meeting on December 25 past year authorised its general secretary, and Imart-e-Shariah chief Maulana Nizamuddin to meet the UP chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav to convince him for issuing a fresh notification to shift the Ayodhya demolition case from Rae Bareli court to
Lucknow. The board’s member and convenor of Babri Masjid Action Committee (BMAC) Zafaryab Jilani said that a letter would be sent soon to the CM secretariat for an appointment with the CM.
The board has taken strong exception over the delay on the part of the state government in issuing the notification. The board’s assistant general secretary Maulana Abdur Raheem Qureshi sad that Mr Singh himself had demanded a fresh notification during the rule of previous BJP and BSP government in the state and that it was unfortunate that now with his own party in power, he is sitting silent on the issue.
The AIMPLB has also decided to ask the UP government to amend the law for providing property rights to married Muslim women according to Shariat. The board will write a letter to the state government and refer to the West Bengal model where the left parties government had amended the law to extend the right to the married Muslim women.
The board also decided in the meeting to expand Darul Qazas (Shariat
Courts) in the districts and panchayats all over the country.
