Malappuram: The one-day seminar organised by the Muslim Educational Society (MES) in Malappuram on Monday demanded that the central government protect the rights of minority communities and the diversity of the country. Speakers at the seminar on triple talaq and uniform civil code (UCC) said that the latest move of the centre to establish the UCC in the country would only help to polarise the country and pose a threat to its diversity.

“The UCC move is a part of the agenda of the Sangh Parivar to polarize people on communal lines and reap political benefits from it. Personal laws of various communities must be revised. But that should happen within the communities.  External interventions in this regard would lead to tensions,” said M.B. Rajesh M.P during his inaugural address.

 

“The talaq (divorce) system in Islamic law is designed in a particular way that denotes the separation of couples. Triple talaq is the last option in the divorce process and cannot simply be instigated,” said Dr. Husain Madavoor, general secretary of the Indian Islahi Movement. UCC is a threat to the cultural diversity of the country and any move to bring to force such a code will be resisted, said Dr. Fasal Gafur, the president of MES who moderated the seminar organised by the MES district committee.
