BAREILLY: The Ulama of Bareilly Markaz Dargarh Ala Hazrat has said that marriages will not be solemnised at places where either dowry is demanded or food is served through buffet system.

"Demanding dowry is against Shariyat-e-Islamia," national president and Shahr Qazi Raza Khan Qadri of "Jamat" affiliated to Markazi, Dar-ul-Ifta said. He said that a campaign has been launched from Thiria town in Bareilly district.

Qadri said the "tanzeem" has decided to make people aware in parts where these social evils prevail. "Even after this, people who do not understand this, the alims will not solemnise their marriages at their places," he said.

He said that due to increasing demand of dowry, girls of a large section of the community could not get married. "This has been termed as illegal by Shariyat-e Islamia," he said.

Similarly, serving food in buffet system or eating while walking was also considered against Islami Shariyat, Qadri said. He said that the intention was to make people follow Shariyat and check exorbitant expenditure and non-Sharai methods.

National general secretary Maulana Shahabuddin Razvi said that Prophet Mohammad had expressed deep dissatisfaction over demanding dowry and buffet system. He said that Jamat would raise a major campaign across the country on these issues.
