Hundreds of Muslims who gathered for Friday prayers in mosques across the state signed a declaration circulated on behalf of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board opposing the common civil code.

“The Constitution of India has provided complete freedom for followers of all faiths to practise their religion. We therefore do not accept common civil code in any form. We are with All India Muslim Personal Law Board to save and protect Shariat laws,’’ states the declaration .

“We are fully satisfied with the commands of Islamic laws, especially on Islamic orders related to nikah, talaq (divorce) khula, fusqh and virasat (heritage). We are fully satisfied with and strongly deny the possibility of any type of change in them (sic),’’ it said.

Maulana Muhammad Maqsood Imran Rashadi, Khateeb and Imam of the Jama Masjid in Bengaluru, said the signatures of hundreds of individuals, including women, would be collected and sent to the AIMPLB for presentation in the Supreme Court.
“In the light of a campaign by 5,000 women seeking deletion of triple talaq, we are going to produce signatures of all the Ummah supporting triple talaq. The triple talaq is a statement of the Holy Quran. They are part of the rules from Allah,’’ Maulana Maqsood Imran said.

The imam said a questionnaire circulated by the law commission had 16 questions that seemed to indicate acceptance of a uniform civil code.
