Deoband: After passing the bill in Lok Sabha the Central government is gearing up to pass the bill in Rajya Sabha. However restiveness prevailed among Muslim organizations and scholars because of the bill. Religious and social organizations of women are marking their protests against the bill. All India Majlis Tahaffuz Khawateen organized a press conference in the premises of Public Girls Inter College.
Addressing the press conference, President All India Majlis Tahaffuz Khawateen, Saba Haseeb Siddiqui said Muslim women never accepted a law against Islamic Shariah nor will accept it. She said Muslim Personal Law Board, scholars and other Muslim religious organizations have always been demanding that the bill should not be finalized without showing it to scholars and intellectuals but the central government passed the bill with all its flaws showing that it wants to force its decision upon Muslim women, while the shariah laws are complete and logical. Saba Haseeb said all Muslim women are with Muslim Personal Law Board because laws of Muslim Personal Law Board are in the light of Quran and Hadeeth. She termed the decision of central government as open interference in religion and shariah.
Saba Haseeb appealed the members of the Rajya Sabha not to pass the bill without proper amendments.
