Stop interfering in issues of Muslim community: Saroori

Excelsior Correspondent

KISHTWAR, May 9: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) leader and MLA Inderwal, Ghulam Mohammad Saroori  today asked present Government not to interfere in the matter of  Triple-Talaq, Uniform Civil Code and concentrate on only those issues for which the present Government got mandate from the people.
“Triple Talaq is a matter of Muslim community, leave it to them, they will decide it,” Saroori said while addressing 7th annual day function of Madrasa at Chhatroo.
He said that the BJP and the RSS wanted to create a divide in the society by spreading hatred between Hindus and Muslims on the issue of Uniform Civil Code (UCC).
“They want to make members of Muslim community fight with each other on the issue of  Triple- Talaq. They also want members of Hindu and Muslim communities fight over the matter of UCC,” Saroori added.
The Congress MLA further said that present Government is playing divisive politics in the country for its vested interests to generate vote bank. This party has been creating wedge between the Hindus and Muslims, who are living in communal harmony and brotherhood in the country for the centuries. He said Governments would come and go but such politics or exploiting religious sentiments of  the people of  both the communities for the political gains, will badly damaged the age old traditions of harmony and co-existence of  all the communities in this great secular nation. He warned the BJP leadership to desist from issuing loud slogans which damage the social fabric and cause damage to our unique secular identity.
He maintained that India is a land of different religious and ethnic communities with varied laws for matters like marriage, divorce, inheritance and adoption. A Uniform Civil Code would engulf all these personal laws into one secular law, applicable to each citizen regardless of their community or religious ideology.  With such a code, the Government is going to play with the sentiments of some communities, he added.
On the occasion Mufti Aijaz Ahmed, Shabir Ahmed, Shokat Ahmed and other Ulmaey Karaam also delivered a talk on the importance of the Madaris and Ulamas.
Meanwhile,  Saroori also laid the foundation stone of 100- bedded girls’  hostel at Chhatroo at a cost of Rs 2.50 crores under RAMSA. He stressed upon the executing agency to ensure time bound completion of  the work.
