Failed Conspiracy: Uniform Civil Code and Muslim Personal Law

“All Wahabis are not terrorists but all terrorists are Wahabis” This was the slogan imported in India during the time of Makkah Masjid Blast, Ajmer Shrine Blast and Malegaon blast.
Any sane Muslim having common sense knew very well that this slogan was imported to India just to ignite sectarian violence among the Muslims, and somehow anti-Islamic forces were successful in doing so. So much so that “scholars” of a particular sect started declaring the other Muslims as terrorist or sympathizer of terrorists who does not belong to their sect.
This process of exploiting sectarian differences among the Muslims is continuing even today in India. Praising one sect of people while condemning others, alleging one for “being involved” in terror activities and supporting the other – is a part of this process. And this is not something which is hidden. It was openly declared by one of the leader of ruling party that who said: we are going to take advantage out of sectarian differences among the Muslims.
I congratulate to the people of those sects who consider triple talaaq as wrong practice and still supported the Muslim Personal Law as they understood the larger conspiracy against Muslims of India behind this issue. Hope in future days scholars of different sects of Muslims will show such maturity In’sha’Allah (God Willing).
Role of Media in Igniting Issues:
The issues are being ignited for the time being. The way Indian media is behaving; It is clear that somehow somebody is controlling all the media houses. Somebody is behind the curtain, with the remote control, deciding which issue to be raised, discussed and debated. Even the time duration of such issues is also being decided. The other issues which has severe effect on common masses is being ignored deliberately and lay down the curtain on the failures. Be it Rafale Jets deal, administration failure in Kashmir, B K Bansal Suicide note, increasing rate of unemployment and the list goes on. We can understand very well who is behind the curtain holding the remote control.
Everyone knows, including the ruling party, that uniform civil code (UCC) is not possible in India. This UCC is not going to affect only Muslims but every citizen of India. Still you find the mediTa houses attack the Muslims and the teachings of Islam. (Remember: Action speaks louder than words). Islam is being targeted by those who have never studied the Quran and media is portraying them as Islamic Scholars and Professors in Islamic Studies.
Why don’t these media houses invite the Sikh brothers to their studios and ask them to stop carrying Kirpan while entering in the banks or other government premises where carrying weapons for common masses is prohibited?
Anyone can question now, if the government knows that UCC is not possible in India then why there is a hue-and-cry in the media? People are made to think that this issue is brought in lime light for the ‘safety’ and ‘raising awareness’ among the Muslim women. This is the blatant lie and I am reminded, on this occasion, of the 1st Ayah of Surah Munafiqoon, Chapter No. 63 of the Glorious Quran: “When the hypocrites come to you, [O Muhammad], they say, “We testify that you are the Messenger of Allah.” And Allah knows that you are His Messenger, and Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars.
Here if you see whatever was said by the hypocrites to the prophet, was 100% truth. Still Allah called them as liars because they were just showing off that they believe in messenger of Allah, but in the heart there was no faith. Thus, Allah called them liars.
The same story is here with the Muslims of India. Some people have claimed themselves as the protectors of Muslim women – in the garb of Mahila Andolan – but in reality, it is the enmity against Islam and its laws which is making them to do so; so that they can malign Islamic laws. It is the fake sympathy they show towards the Muslim women and directly attack the Muslim Personal Law. If they really care for the Muslim Women and their rights, I would like to know:
What have they done to give justice to Zakia Jafri & Bilkis Banu who have suffered in the Gujarat communal riots in 2002?
What have they don’t to give justice to those 30 plus women who were raped in Muzaffarnagar riots?
What have they done to give justice to the sisters who were raped in Mewat by Gau-Rakshaks?
What these feminist did to get bail rejected of Babu Bajrangi who is convicted for a heinous crime in Naroda Patia. (He killed a pregnant Muslim woman and taken out baby from womb and put it on sword. He accepted this in the sting operation video done by Tahelka)
What have they done for the Muslim women getting raped in the Kashmir valley?
Their silence over such issues is enough for us to understand the agenda they are fulfilling by showing fake sympathy towards Muslim women.
Triple Talaq and Halala:
We know few Muslims have misused the triple talaaq & halala. It must be condemned and it must be corrected by the scholars.
Islam strictly condemns three simultaneous talaaq. There was an incident at the time of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and “The Messenger of Allah was told about a man who had divorced his wife with three simultaneous divorces. He stood up angrily and said: Is the Book of Allah being toyed with while I am still among you? Then a man stood up and said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, shall I kill him?'” (Sunan Nasai 3401)
The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ cursed the persons involved in the process of halala by saying “Curse be upon the one who marries a divorced woman with the intention of making her lawful for her former husband and upon the one for whom she is made lawful.” (Sunan Abi Dawud 2076)
A Message to the Muslims:
It is Allah’s promise to give honor to the Muslims when they follow the law of Allah. If they will try to play with the laws of Allah, then they will be humiliated. It is high time for the Muslim scholars to take up this matter seriously before the government try to exploit this issue and do something which can be harmful for the whole community.
