Kanthapuram faction skips IUML meet on Uniform Civil Codetext_fields
Kozhikode: The Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) convened a meeting of different Muslim organisations in Kozhikode on Saturday to discuss the issues related to the Central government’s move to implement the Uniform Civil Code.
Interestingly, Sunni faction led by Kanthapuram AP Aboobacker Musliar stayed away from the meeting. Representatives of E.K Sunni fraction, Jama’ate Islami, Mujahid Madavoor fraction, KNM and MES attended the meeting.
The meeting was convened to take a decision on how to respond to the questionnaire issued by the Law Commission of India.
The Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) had earlier announced its decision to spearhead a campaign against the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) and the Centre’s attempts to impose it on Muslims.
IUML national secretary E.T. Mohammed Basheer had said that the IUML would take lead in not only mobilising public opinion against the Centre, but also in bringing all secular groups under one platform.
The IUML leaders had alleged that the Centre was trying to divert the attention from a serious issue such as curtailing the people’s Constitutional rights by highlighting less important matters such as triple talaq.
