Bangalore: “Today co-education, free mingling of men and women and deteriorating family values have ruined our society. Muslim families are not spared either. The noble relation of couples which was intended for mutual contentment and coolness of eyes, now face tensions and discords due to our own misdoings. The menace of dowry, extravaganza in marriage expenses and domestic violence has disturbed our society a lot. It is high time that Muslim community wakeups to reform their relations for a healthy society” said Moulana Muhammad Rafeeq Qasmi, National Secretary of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind here in a special gathering of Ulama at BIFT organized by the Majlisul Ulama, Tehreek-e-Islami Hind, Bangalore Metro on 15 June 2013.
