We Will Never Recognize Uniform Civil Code,Will Start Civil Disobedience Movement against it

Several notable figures within the Muslim community convened in Dehradun on Thursday, adamantly expressing their refusal to accept the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) Bill recently passed by the Uttarakhand Assembly. Characterizing the Bill as an infringement upon religious pluralism, they pledged to stage civil disobedience protests against its implementation. Chaired by Dehradun’s Shahar Qazi Maulana Mohammad Ahmad Qasami, the gathering resolved to contest the Bill’s validity in the Supreme Court.

Naeem Qureshi, president of Muslim Seva Sangathan, announced plans for a forthcoming meeting on Sunday to strategize further actions. “We intend to convene a gathering of prominent members from the Muslim community to deliberate on our next steps,” stated Qureshi. “Additionally, we will dispatch a memorandum to key authorities, including the Law Commission, the Chief Justice of India, the Speaker of Lok Sabha, and the Prime Minister, urging them to intervene and prompt the Uttarakhand government to revoke this controversial legislation.”

He added, “In the interim, our recourse is to challenge the UCC Bill in the Supreme Court, as it seeks to impose the doctrines and regulations of a singular faith onto all citizens, undermining our religious autonomy.”
