Lucknow: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is set to launch a 'law journal' to dispel misinformation about Sharia laws and create awareness about legal rights and court judgments on minority issues.

In its working committee meeting held online recently, the board has decided to launch the journal in both English and Urdu language.

"There is a need for educating people about the aspects of Sharia related to Personal Law. The law journal to be published in English and Urdu will have information on the legal rights of minorities and the various court judgments on minority issues in a simplified manner," the board said.

It was also decided to launch a campaign for the protection of Waqf properties in the country, under the leadership of Maulana Raabey Hasani Nadwi.

"Some groups are asking for the present Waqf Act to be scrapped and political moves are also being made around this. We condemn this. A peaceful movement, Tafaffuz-e-Auqaf, will be run in the country by the board to safeguard our waqf properties," the board said.

"Majority of these properties have been encroached upon by Muslims themselves. The campaign will apprise Muslims and waqf mutawwalis against such encroachments and ask them to secure the lands," it added.

Further, the board condemned the demolition of Masjid Ghareeb Nawaz in Barabanki by the district administration earlier in May. However, it also expressed satisfaction over the board's legal progress on the case so far.
