The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), in its meeting at Jaipur from March 20 to 22, will take up issues like beef ban and scrapping of the Ordinance providing quota to Muslims in educational institutions in Maharashtra.

AIMPLB executive committee member Zafaryab Jilani said though these issues were not in the agenda, it is affecting the people in Maharashtra and thus, will be discussed. The AIMPLB will hold its executive panel meet on March 20, followed by the general body meeting in Jaipur.

“It is a wrong decision to ban beef. Even a large number of Hindus, Christians and the poor have been affected. We will also take up the issue of scrapping of quota for Muslims. This has been done despite the court’s sanction,” said Abdussattar Yusuf Sheikh, AIMPLB founder senior secretary.

The AIMPLB will also decide its future course of action over meeting PM Narendra Modi. On June 1, AIMPLB had decided to have no contact with Modi for six months.
