Indore (MP) – The Places of Worship Act is being constantly violated. There will be anarchy amongst people following different religions in this country, therefore, the Government should strictly implement this law, demanded the All India Muslim Personal Law Board in a meeting held here. Discussions were held by Muslims on different subjects during the two-day meeting in a madarasa at Mhow. It was claimed that the Common Civil Code was harmful to people of all religions and an atmosphere of hatred was being created in the country, destroying fraternity and harmony. Eleven resolutions were passed in the meeting. Discussions were held on the Places of Worship Act, Common Civil Code, marriage between homosexuals, bulldozer culture, mob violence, etc.
Dr Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas, the Spokesperson of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, said that a mosque cannot be built by illegally taking possession of another person’s land. (Making such a statement on one hand and supporting the construction of mosques built by demolishing Hindu temples is a double standard. Why don’t the Muslims hand over Hindu temples forcefully grabbed from Hindus if building a mosque by illegal acquisition of land is wrong under Islam ? – Editor)
Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, the President of the meeting said that the Constitution has conferred the fundamental right of following any religion as per his wish, to every citizen of this country; along with which, freedom of propagating religion has also been conferred. Even then, a few States have passed laws, depriving citizens of this freedom. (The Places of Worship Act 1991 was made by the Congress Party in 1991. There was no such law earlier and no anarchic situation was created in the country, then, why would it be created now ? It needs to be noted that by making such kind of statements, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board is trying to threaten the Hindus. – Editor)
