HYDERABAD: Muslim leaders, representing various political, religious and social organisations, joined hands in Hyderabad to oppose the proposed Uniform Civil Code in the country.

The leaders, who met here on Saturday decided to express their dissent through the “All India Tahafuz-e-Shariyat Conference” to be held on Nov 13 at Exhibition Grounds.
The meeting was presided by Zahed Ali Khan, editor-in-chief of Siasat Daily and was attended by opposition leaders from across Telangana.

“The threat of Uniform Civil Code is real,” said Mohammed Mushtaq Mallik, president of Tahreek Muslim Shabban. Except Muslims and Christians, constitutionally, all other communities including Sikhs and Jains, are treated on a par with Hindu communities.”
“Therefore, the proposed UCC is primarily aimed at interfering with Muslim Personal Law, he added.
Members who met appealed to all Muslims to support the decision of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) in boycotting the questionnaire of Law Commission on UCC.
