In its two days conclave in UP’s Deoband, Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind passed a resolution that it won’t accept any interference in Islamic laws and would oppose the proposed Uniform Civil Code.
Jamiat chief Maulana Madani said that Islamic laws are an integral part of Islam, and Muslims all over the world revere it, and the proposed Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is an attempt to interfere in Islamic laws.
He said that the Jamiat would fight the legal and political battle against UCC.
Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind organised a two-day conclave in Deoband on May 28 & 29, where over 5000 delegates participated. One of the resolutions passed in the conclave read that there have been misconceptions and canards spread about Islamic studies, and the Jamiat will work to popularise Islamic studies.
It was for the first time in over 14 years that both the factions of the Jamiat, led by Maulana Arshad Madani and Maulana Mehmood Madani, shared a stage. Maulana Arshad Madani, the principal of Darul Uloom Deoband, reached the conclave venue on Saturday (May 28) uninvited.
Propagating the Muslim victimhood narrative, Maulana Mehmood Madani said that Muslims are facing multiple hardships in the country and the ruling politicians are silent about it.
He said that a deliberate attempt was made to spread canards about Prophet Muhammed. A resolution was passed to press the government to check the spread of such canards against Prophet Muhammed.
The conclave also concluded that court cases about the Gyanvapi disputed structure and Mathura Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Sthal are deliberate attempts to disturb the peace of the country. A resolution passed in this regard read that when the Places of worship Act, 1991 had already settled this dispute, what was the need to bring it up again.
The conclave did not discuss why Islamists have killed so many Hindus in the last few weeks.
In his address on Saturday (May 28), Maulana Madani said that they had the option to go to Pakistan in 1947, but they did not go, and those who have a problem with Islam can go to any country they wish to.
The district court in Varanasi is currently hearing a case about the Gyanvapi disputed structure. A case was filed by Delhi-based Rakhi Singh, Laxmi Devi, Sita Sahu, Manju Vyas and Rekha Pathak on April 18 last year, demanding permission for daily worship of Shringar Gauri, Lord Ganesh, Lord Hanuman and Nandi located on the outer wall of the Gyanvapi mosque. The plea had also requested an order restraining the opponents from causing any damage to the statutes.
On the court’s orders, a videographic survey of the Gyanvapi mosque was conducted by the court commissioner. The Muslim side has petitioned the court to not make the video public. Multiple attempts were made by the Muslim side to stop the survey of the mosque, which was built after demolishing a temple.
