AIMPLB Terms Uniform Civil Code ‘Unjustified’, Says Will Work Towards Building Public Opinion Against It

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) will work towards building public opinion against the Uniform Civil Code, stating that in a country like India with different cultures and civilisations such a move “will not be justified”.

The decision was taken in the executive meeting of the board, held virtually a few days ago.

AIMPLB member Zafaryab Jilani told PTI on Saturday that “important decisions pertaining to common civil code and the Babri mosque demolition case” were taken in the meeting on 11 and 13 October.

“The board members are of the view that in the agenda of the ruling BJP, now only common civil code is left, and they will proceed in this direction,” he said.

Jilani said that the board will establish contact with different sections of the society, which could be affected in case the common civil code is implemented, and try to build a consensus and public opinion against it.

“India is a country of different cultures and civilisations, hence implementing this code will not be justified,” he said.

The AIMPLB member also said the board will challenge the special CBI court judgement in the Babri mosque demolition. “Representatives of the board will appeal against the judgment in the high court,” he said.

A special court acquitted all 32 accused including BJP veterans LK Advani, MM Joshi and Uma Bharti of involvement in the destruction of Babri Masjid. In a 2,300-page judgment, the CBI court said there was no conclusive evidence against the accused of being part of any conspiracy to bring down the disputed structure in Ayodhya.

The 16th-century mosque was demolished on 6 December 1992 by marauding Hindu mobs, the destruction triggered riots that left thousands dead in the country and widening rifts between the communities.
