Mangaluru, Oct 28: Issuing a stern warning to union government against trying to interfere in Islamic Shariah, a veteran Sunni cleric of coastal Karnataka has said that all members of Muslim community are ready to sink their differences to counter the politically motivated conspiracies againstthe religion of peace'.
Speaking at a protest meet organised by the Federation of Sunni Organisations of Dakshina Kannada on Friday in front of the office of deputy commissioner in the city, Ibrahim Musliyar Bekal, the Khazi of Udupi, said that government should not misunderstand that Muslims are divided.
“Yes, there are differences among Muslims. But, we are united and we will not tolerate any kind of external meddling in the affairs of Shariah,” he said in the presence of the leaders of various Sunni organisations such as SJU, SJM, SYS, SSF, SMA, SEDC, KMJC and KCF.
“Islam is the complete and flawless system, wherein one has no opportunity to make any changes. This is a divine system. Even prophet Muhammad (pbuh), who taught us Islam to the mankind, too has no authority to make any changes in the religion against God's will. Then how can we tolerate union government's attempt to outlaw talaq,” he questioned.
Quoting the hadith of Prophet (pbuh) that “among the lawful things, divorce is the most hated by Allah”, the Khazi said that a husband can resort to talaq only in an extreme situation. Similarly, Islam has granted power to woman too to separate from her husband in extreme situations, he added.
Presiding over the protest meet, KNM Shaafi Saadi, accused the media and politicians of spreading wrong information about the provision of talaq in Islam. “Talaq is a long procedure. One will not pounce all three talaqs together. One must study the concept of talaq thoroughly before commenting on it,” he said.
Responding to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent remark that he cannot allow lives of Muslim women to be ruined by talaq, the cleric said that the lives of thousands of Muslim women across the country have been ruined thanks to the atrocities of Sangh Parivar activists who indulge in communal riots and attack innocents.
Good reply to Central Chaddi Government. Modi is Not eligible even make chai also. Unfit fellow grabbed honorable position.
What a shame to India. Need more protest and let them understand what is Islam & Peace. Thanks to association bearers for brief clarification about Talaq system.
