Gay ruling unites diverse religious leaders

Hyderabad: The All-India Muslim Personal Law Board has taken objection to Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily’s observation that bigamy is against the tenets of Islam and asserted that a Muslim man can marry up to four women.


In a press release issued here today, assistant general secretary of the board Abdul Rahim Quraishi said that it was unfortunate that the Law Commission had come to a conclusion without understanding the Quran and the traditions laid down by the Prophet. ``Sometimes a man needs to take another woman as wife and, in certain conditions, will be forced to do so in the interest of the society.’’ Quraishi said that Indian Muslims did not follow any other country and the Law Commission’s argument that some Islamic countries had banned polygamy did not have a binding on them. He wondered why the commission took up the subject and recalled the commission’s statement in the past that bigamy was not rampant in India.


The Muslim Law Board assistant secretary demanded that the government consult the Muslims before making a law on bigamy.

Muslims have proved infinite number of times that they don't understand their own religion.


Every time a problem comes up the Qur'an is interpreted as per the requirements of the situation and often in accordance with the wishes of the more powerful one among the disputing parties.


Many years back George Bernard Shaw had said that Islam is the best religion, but Muslims are the worst followers. Our religious leaders have proved him right 95 times out of 100.

In the name of following Islam human rights have been washed down the drain many times.


In its present avtar, AIMPLB has no sanction to speak for all the Muslims. It will be in the interest of the community if a more democratic, humane and enlightened forum consisting of representatives from all across the country takes over.
