AIMPLB calls Uniform Civil Code ‘unconstitutional’


The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) General Secretary, Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani has reiterated its stand that the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is “unconstitutional and anti-minority move”.

In a statement released by Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, AIMPLB General Secretary, said the Constitution has allowed every citizen of India to live according to his religion.

The AIMPLB said the matter has been brought up in order to divert attention from real issues and added that the decision is not acceptable to Muslims.

“The talk of adoption of Uniform Civil Code by the Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh governments or the BJPs government is just rhetoric and everyone knows that their purpose is to divert attention from issues such as rising inflation, falling economy, and growing unemployment,” Rahmani added.
