Sharia Panchayats rendering important social service

New Delhi, 11 July 2014: Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Omari, Amir (National President) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind applauded the Supreme Court observation whereby it accepted rationality of some Fatwas and did not impose any ban on Muslims resolving their issues through arbitration. However, he said one can talk in detail over the issue only after studying the full verdict of the Supreme Court. He further said that when lakhs of cases are pending in courts and people do not get justice even for several generations, it would be unjust if services of Sharia courts and Panchayats are not acknowledged.

Amir-e Jamaat expressed concern that even though the Constitution of India has granted freedom to every citizen to follow religion of their choice, decisions of courts often curtail that freedom of the 20-crore Muslim community causing anxiety and dissatisfaction in them.

Maulana Omari expressed surprise that only experts have rights to comment on established sciences and other academic issues but when it comes to Islamic Shariat which is a great collection of the orders of Allah and His Prophet and a great guidance, it seems everyone even without Iman and full knowledge has got right to comment on it. He said elimination of this trend would be true service of democracy.

Amir-e Jamaat advised the Muslim community in India to follow Islamic Shariat honestly to let the country understand its usefulness and keep from doing such acts which make Islam a topic of unnecessary debate and criticism.

    We must see Supreme Court verdict what it has accepted and how far it is relevant to the muslim community. At present Muslim community in India are badly effected in matrimonial matters. Muslim associations has to take responsibility to make them understand the orders of Allah subhanautala at gross root level. I feel it is only possible for Jamat -e-Islami.

    Since Muslims in India are sharing the customs and rituals of non-Muslims as they live together and following Shariat is very remote level. At the primary level they were not taught proper teachings of orders of Allah. This is only the draw back of the Muslim community in India.
