AIMMM Condemns Political Exploitation of Imrana Case by BJP

Criminal Case Must Take its Course under Law of Land

Personal Law Aspect should be Decided by Consensus among Various Schools of Muslim Law

Media should not Blow up Individual Incidents to Malign Islam

Muftis should not issue Fatwas on Live Questions on Request from Strangers and without Due Investigation

New Delhi, 2 July, 2005: “The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) condemns the political exploitation of the Imrana case by the BJP to promote its long-cherished agenda of religious assimilation of the Muslim Community through imposition of a common civil code in substitution of its Shariat-based Personal Law.

The AIMMM considers this move totally illogical and misconceived because no civil code can eliminate incestuous relationships from the Society and points out the fact that many such cases in the Hindu community are reported off and on, though it violates Hindu Code.

The AIMMM would like to clarify that the Imrana case has two aspectsThe criminal aspect, the alleged rape or molestation, must be dealt with under the law of the land.  Law must take its course and the culprit, if found guilty, should be awarded the maximum sentence.

On the personal law aspect i.e. on the question whether the Nikah between a Muslim woman and her husband stands dissolved after a rape by her father-in-law, different schools of Islamic jurisprudence have different opinions.  In any case, a ‘fatwa’ is an opinion and not a judicial verdict. 

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board is expected to hold a meeting soon to reach a consensus, keeping in view the circumstance of the case and the demand of justice which is one of the basic principles of Islam.

The AIMMM requests the mass media not to blow up individual cases in the interest of inter-faith understanding or read a stray fatwa as a final ruling under the Shariat.

The AIMMM is not aware whether Imrana or her husband has even approached the Dar-ul-Uloom or the local Dar-ul-Qaza. 

It, therefore, appeals to the Muftis to refrain from issuing ‘Fatwas’ on live and sensitive situations unless approached by the parties concerned and without investigating the circumstances.
