Hyderabad, October 20, 2016: All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) Secretary Moulana Khalid Saifullah Rehmani has said that Muslim Personal Law is a matter of life and death for Muslims.

He said Muslims will shed their last drop of blood, offer their heads and make any sacrifice but will never bow to any law which stops them from obeying the orders of ‘Allah’ and the Prophet Mohammed.


The eminent Islamic scholar was addressing a public meeting organised by AIMPLB here on Wednesday night to oppose the attempts to impose Uniform Civil Code (UCC).

The public meeting held at Darussalam, the headquarters of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and was addressed by leaders from all Islamic sects and schools of thought.

A large number of women also attended the meeting, which was also addressed by five women members of the board.

Moulana Rehmani made it clear that the board will neither get provoked nor be coward in dealing with the issue.

He clarified that the board boycotted the questionnaire of the Law Commission as it was framed in a manner to give an impression that UCC is a constitutional process. He, however, said they were not boycotting Law Commission and that is why the board has taken up a signature campaign.

AIMPLB Secretary advised Muslims to be cautious about a misleading pro forma being circulated on the social media. He said this mischievous pro forma had an additional fourth point that there is need for reforms in Muslim Personal Law.

On the permissions being sought by certain Muslim organisations for taking out rallies on the issue, he advised them to follow directions of the board.

Stating that UCC is an attempt to snatch the identity of Muslims, he urged the community to rise above sects and organisations for a united struggle to protect Sharia.

Moulana Rehmani said Muslim Personal Law was protected by Article 25 of the Constitution, which has given citizens the right to believe, practice and preach their religion.

Condemning attempts to defame Muslims, he said all surveys show that Muslims have least rate of divorce and polygamy compared to other communities in the country.

Hamid Mohammed Khan, chief of Jamat-e-Islami’s Telangana and Odisha unit said the National Democratic Alliance government was trying to impose UCC to cover its failures on all fronts. He said the BJP-led government was working for communal polarisation with an eye on ensuing elections in Uttar Pradesh.

Condemning the attempt to bring changes to Muslim Personal Law, he pointed out that the country already has a uniform criminal law and 99 per cent of even civil laws are uniform.(IANS)

away but the universe that surrounds them.

By Sukant Deepak

He describes himself as a 'Shiv bhakt' and a 'Muslim Jogi'. In his world, stories are not mere tales that entertain, but a tool to reinforce contemporary realities among listeners. Rich in metaphors, vivid with minute details, Jumme Khan likes to transport his audiences not to a world far away but the universe that surrounds them.

Part of a Jogi family from Pinan village in Alwar, Rajasthan and accompanied by his band of musicians, he uses a combination of harmonium, chimta, dholak, and the single-stringed bhapang - his instrument of choice - to retell stories that resound across generations. "The key here is connection. Unless people can relate, they will not enjoy it. To touch them, we have to decipher the common truth, find that elusive thread that binds us all. That is when the audience becomes one with the storyteller," he tells IANS.

Khan, who enthralled the audience with the oral tradition of the improvisatory, communicative story-telling style of the Jogis at the recently concluded 'Mahindra Kabira Festival' in Varanasi, started singing when he was 13-years-old, and there has been no looking back ever since. "But it never gets repetitive. Every day on the stage is a new one. One is forever in search of something new that will resound with the audience," says Khan, who has also penned a song on the ongoing Corona pandemic.

For him, the magic of folk is unparalleled. He insists that nothing can replace the enigma of folk music in any culture. "Of course, this does not mean that steps are not taken to preserve it. We have seen a decline in the number of folk artists in the past few decades. But the immense power of folk seldom fails to move the audiences, including those who have always had access to modern entertainment," says Khan.

But he does feel that culture has taken a back seat in modern education. Remembering the time when schools would regularly organise cultural activities for students, he says, "It seems nowadays everything is about academics. How can we forget the fact that music and the arts play an indispensable role in all-around development? Culture opens an altogether new horizon, imparts a vision and understanding about the self. At least, give the children access and introduce them to different art forms including music. Let them decide if they want to pursue or not."

The cosmetic industry is ever-changing and always gives us something new to wish for.

By IANSlife

Today, we are exposed to a gazillion beauty product launches every now and then. The cosmetic industry is ever-changing and always gives us something new to wish for. But how much thought do we actually put in before buying the skincare product for ourselves? You should always pay attention to the products and their ingredients. Choosing products from a company with a reputable line of products can be helpful, since each component may be designed to work in conjunction with the others. You can also be assured of the products' quality and may better be able to predict how your skin will react to trying a different product in the same line.

Skin is one of the largest organs of the body. Because of this, caring for your skin can directly affect your overall health. Your skin acts as a protective shield and is most vulnerable to outside elements. It's affected by more factors than you may think. In addition to this, your health also affects your choice of skincare products and vice-versa.

Nandeeta Manchandaa, Founder of ENN shares the whys and hows:

Let's talk Vitamins: Your body needs all essential vitamins for proper functioning and if any vitamin is a miss, then effects show on your skin too. Like- dark spots, pigmentation are often seen on people with melanin issues, or even in pregnant ladies. So Vitamin-C rich products are the go-to to combat this issue.
