In a shocking development, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) resolved on Friday evening to oppose any court verdict that goes against the tenets of the Islamic Shariat Law.
The brief just basically says that if the Indian laws don’t agree with Islamic laws, the Muslim board along with all its followers (which are a lot) will oppose them.
Untill and unless the laws are in sync with Shariat, they will not follow them. To this I say, What Arrogance! This nation is not Islamic and this is not the Arab world! India did a favor to all its Muslims at the time of partition by not forcing them to flee to Pakistan leaving their home, which would have made logical sense considering that the partition was based on religion.
But we chose to take the secular route, giving each one EQUAL opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the India. And this is how you pay back? We should always remember that this freedom is not a right but a privilege. It is time we start respecting it. And Isn’t expecting the whole nation, of which Muslims form just a fraction, to be run according to you anything less than sheer arrogance?
Although, the reaction of the Muslim populace is yet to be seen. But a major Muslim body declaring such an anti-national thing is not something India can afford to ignore.
Why the hell should Indian laws be according to Islam? Secularism is not following every religion but rather not following any. The constitution defines the Republic of India to be ‘Dharm Nishpeksh’ and that is what secularism is. It is not about pleasing every section of the society, most certainly not.
Now, what all will the Muslim board do after this? Ban the Banking sector coz loans are ‘haram’ in Islam? or remove democracy coz its unislamic? or remove our criminal laws and get Taliban styled ‘eye for an eye’ rule?
It is time Muslim leaders stop expecting that India will run according to any particular religion. coz It will not. We shall not let it. India doesn’t need any religion to tell it what is right and what is not.
It is time all our religious leaders and most especially Muslim leaders stop bossing India around.
It is time everyone understands that this is not the Arab World, this is India. And if anyone cant keep India before their religious interest, they don’t deserve to be here. Every whose not an Indian first is free to leave.
Lets all put India first, and be Indians united.
And today, I would like to reach out to our Muslim brethren and urge them to denounce such anti-India moves. Why should there be different laws for me and you? Just coz you are Muslim and I am a Hindu? But aren’t we Indians first? Zara Sooch ke Dekhiyen.
It is time Indian Muslims speak out against such moves and declare that they are Indians first, coz we they don’t do it now it might be too late. Let this not shake India’s Trust on the Muslim community
It is time to make a choice. It is time.
