SRINAGAR : Terming the proposed bill banning Triple Talaq as interference in religious affairs, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has appealed religious organizations to resist the move.
In a statement issued today Er. Rasheed said that no parliament, assembly or organization has a right to amend or ban anything as prescribed by the holy Quran and Sunnah, Er. Rasheed said “Islam is a perfect religion for all times. It is unfortunate that Triple Talaq is being interpreted in a wrong way.
Women rights are most secure and most protected in Islam and it would be in India’s own interest not to interfere in religious affairs of any religion. Those who created issue out of nothing only for their vote bank politics and to defame the Muslim Community should restrain from playing with the fire and emotions of the Muslims”. Er. Rasheed appealed Parliamentarians to understand the sensitivity and seriousness of the issue.
He said “Few so called liberal state sponsored intellectuals especially from women folk can by no means claim to be representing the majority of Muslim women, nor can they disgrace Islam and the religious scholars just for their own convenience and interests. The Islamic scholars and religious preachers deserve due respect and matters like Triple Talaq should be left to their interpretation in light of Quran and Sunnah”. Er. Rasheed added that those who have always been keen bent to destroy Muslims are trying to become warriors of Muslim women only to create a division between various sects of Muslim community.
Er Rasheed appealed all Muslim Parliament members to oppose the bill tooth and nail and ensure that no interference takes place in religious affairs.
Er. Rasheed asked BJP Govt. to stop crying being sympathizer of Mualim Umah and said that If India truly owns Muslims then it should have accepted Jerusalem as capital of Palestine rather trying to prove Muslims radical and anti-women.
