Surat: Over 25, 000 Muslim women protested against Uniform Civil Code (UCC) in a rally organized by All-Muslim Samaj on Friday. They came from Limbayat, Udhna, Rander, Adajan and walled city areas to show their solidarity with Muslim Personal Law. Later they submitted a memorandum to district collector saying that Muslim women will not tolerate any interference in their personal laws, reported TOI.
Humeria Shaikh, a housewife from Limbayat, said, “Sharia is oxygen for Muslim men and women and under no circumstances, we will agree to any changes in our personal law.”
A signature campaign has been started in the city to get the support of Muslim women against the UCC. A huge response to the campaign should be a clear message to the central government that there can’t be any compromise on Muslim Personal Law.” All-Muslim Samaj member Maqsood Beg Mirza told the English daily .
‘We want Personal Law’, ‘We Love Shariat’ and ‘We are Satisfied with Our Shariat’ were some of the slogans they were displaying on their banners.
