Accusing the Centre of attempting to “impose” the contentious Uniform Civil Code, the Indian Union Muslim League announced the party would spearhead a campaign against it.
Speaking at a meeting of the joint council of different Muslim organisations convened in Kozhikode by the IUML, party National Secretary E.T Mohammed Basheer said the IUML would take the lead in mobilising public opinion against the Centre over its attempts to “impose” the UCC.
He also said that his party would work for bringing all secular groups under one platform.
“IUML will take the lead in mobilising public opinion against the Centre in its attempts to impose the UCC and also work for bringing all secular groups under one platform,” Basheer said.
The IUML leaders who spoke at the meeting alleged that the Centre was trying to divert the attention from various issues affecting the people by highlighting “less important matters such as triple talaq”.
The joint council suggested that there was no need for any amendment in the Shariat Law and opined that the Centre’s move to implement the UCC was a trap and all the Muslim organisations were similar in their views against its implementation.
