All India Muslim Personal Law Board members

at Bhatkal

“Tired of presenting memorandums”, many “wanted results”. The “non implementation” of recommendations of several earlier Commissions and Committees has made the Muslim community wary of any new initiative. While not everybody has lost hope, many feel that any change in the attitude of the State requires “commitment and a change in the mindset” observed some. Another common refrain was that the Muslim situation should be looked upon not as a problem of a minority, but as a national concern."

-Excerpts from Sacchar Committee Report

Bhatkal: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) alleged that the CBI is unreasonably delaying the proceedings of the Babri Masjid demolition since December 1992. Advocate Abdur Rahim Qureshi, Assistant General Secretary, AIMPLB stated that the board believes that the CBI is deliberately holding back the witnesses of the case from being presented before the court.

Mr Qureshi asserted that the Board has decided to demand an explanation from the Liberhan Commission for not heeding to the time limit of Six months, which was granted to them by the court, to submit reports regarding the Babri Masjid case. It's been fifteen years now and the commission has not yet submitted any reports with this regard.

The AIMPLB meet was held here on Saturday, the 7th of February 2009. It began at 10.30 am and continued till 2.30 pm. Along with this case various other imperative issues were discussed during the convention.


The AIMPLB has contested against the formation of the Central Madrasa Board as proposed by the Union Government. Mr. Qureshi affirmed this as interference into our religious matters which also account as a threat to the religious freedom and our constitutional right to freely follow our faith. He quoted that a delegation of the board will hold a meeting with the prime minister and the other ministers to put forward their opposition towards the establishment of the Madrasa board.

The AIMPLB has affirmed to strongly counter an amendment to the 'UP Zamindari Abolition and Land Reform Act, 1950' which was made during the September 2008 monsoon session of the U.P. Assembly. According to which only unmarried daughters of the property owners are liable to inherit property. This implies that the married women and widows will be deprived of their right of inheritance.

Mr. Qureshi mentioned that according to the Islamic Shariat, women have the right to inherit their father's and husband's property. Therefore, the board will demand the UP government to provide the right to inheritance to all women.

The board also resisted the Supreme Court order which was passed in October 2007, with regard to the compulsory registration of marriages. This order was passed with the intention of curbing child marriage. Mr. Qureshi opined that this order will cause inconvenience to the village residents as they will have to run errands from pillar to post to get their marriage registered.

He further claimed “We oppose this order not in the name of Muslims alone but on behalf of the entire country.” He added that the Muslims have a well organized system of recording their marriages with the Qazi in the form of Nikah-Nama. Therefore, the board appealed that this Nikah Nama be deemed as a legitimate certificate at a par with the government marriage registration certificate.

The board expressed their grief over the incorrect interpretations of the Islamic shariah. Mr. Qureshi averred that a case was registered in the Supreme Court regarding the Darul Quaza and the petitioner had termed it as the parallel system of justice. The board denied it being the parallel system of justice and has submitted its detailed account asserting it as a system of resolving the problems faced by the Muslims.
