Youth raise voice, seek say in Muslim law board

The members allegedly also questioned AIMPLB for holding closed-door meetings, passing resolutions and keeping these under wraps.

Nearly four decades after it was founded, resentment is brewing among the young members of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB).

The voices became more vocal during the Board’s working committee meeting held on Sunday, where these members termed AIMPLB as an “dilapidated building whose plaster is peeling off from the walls”.

The newly appointed officiating general secretary of AIMPLB, Maulana Wali Rehmani of Bihar, admitted that voices for including youth in the Board were raised at the meeting.

At present, the tradition is that the main office-bearers of AIMPLB — founded in 1973 in Mumbai — continue in their posts till they die. Its chairman Rabey Hasan Nadvi and general secretary Maulana Nizamuddin both are around 80 years old.
