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)

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
