Religious laws

The case of imrana (which by now has been forgetten by many ) had let the apex court to issue a notice last year, to the centre and to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board to restrain the board from establishing a parallel muslim judicial system. The fatwa issued by Darul-Uloom last year to Imrana was really disgusting. she was ordered to leave her husband and live with her father in law who has allegedly raped her. Many social activists and even many muslims opposed this and the controversy led to the issual of the above said notice by the apex court. The center has informed the supreme court on monday,that they are still looking into the matter and has sought some time from the court. A uniform civil law is what we require now, which will abolish all the existing religious laws in our country, whatever the religion may be. Even as the center is still looking into the matter! a person from west bengal has been ordered by a village moulvi to seperate from his wife jus bcos he uttered the word 'talaq' thrice in his sleep. but the person is wise enough to register his marriage in a sub divisional court after the moulvi's verdict.

Uniform Civil Code is not possible coz our major parties like Congress,Communist,SP,etc consider Muslims as minority vote banks.They won't do anything against them or their belief.In DMK's election manifesto they promised reservation for Muslims.i guess it'll divide people of this country.

The mamanaar should be given some torturous punishment for doing such a thing but instead these crazy lunatics are asking the poor woman to live with him, how is this possible? Ivanungala maadhiri aalunga irukkavarakkum namma naadu thirundhave mudiyaadhu, !@#$%^&*< pasanga :-(
