New Delhi: In the wake of the government’s attempt to target Muslim Personal Law under the guise of a uniform civil code, prominent Muslim religious leaders issued a joint statement. They demanded that the Government of India completely abandon its plans to introduce the Uniform Civil Code. This code, if implemented, would undeniably impact Muslim Personal Law, jeopardizing the fundamental right of our country’s citizens to freely practice their religionsa right safeguarded by the Constitution.

They said the religious identity of Indian Muslims is deeply linked with Muslim Personal Law, which is founded upon the Shariat Application Act of 1937. Numerous laws based on Sharia principles are directly derived from clear verses of the Holy Quran and reliable hadiths, and as a result, there exists a consensus among the Ummah regarding their authority.

Hence, we firmly demand that the Government of India completely abandon its plans to introduce the Uniform Civil Code. We earnestly request Muslim citizens to actively respond to the 22nd Law Commission of India, which has sought public opinion on the matter of the Uniform Civil Code.

We urge every organization and individual, in their respective capacities, to submit their responses to the Law Commission via email or any other suitable means of communication.
