New Delhi: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind’s Muslim Personal Law campaign came to an end with a concluding program at Aiwan-e-Galib, New Delhi. The jam-packed auditorium was addressed by several Muslim clerics including Jamaat’s All India President Maulana Jalaluddin Umari.
For the last two weeks, Jamaat has been trying to create awareness about different aspects of Muslim Personal Law, through different sorts of campaign across the country. From door to door campaigning in different Muslim localities to seminars and symposiums, the leading Muslim religious organization reached out to a large number of Muslims, particularly to its sympathiser base.
The important aspects of the Muslim personal law that have been highlighted by the JIH includes the right way of divorce, how to make the marriage easy, how to end ostentations and spending in marriages, how to give inheritance to women according to Qur’anic directives, polygamy and its needs in special cases.
A large number of women were also in attendance. The only disappointing aspect of the otherwise very interesting program was the fact that there was not a single Muslim woman on the dais in a program that was meant to address issues that confront them the most.
