Assam: ‘BJP wants to polarize votes’ Muslim leaders get angry over abolition of Muslim Marriage Act in Assam – BollywoodWallah

Assam: To end child marriage, the Assam government has approved the repeal of the Assam Muslim Marriages and Divorces Registration Act 1935. State CM Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted on social media and said that our cabinet has taken a decisive decision to protect the daughters of the Muslim community of Assam. He wrote that the 89 year old Muslim Marriage and Divorce Registration Act will be repealed. This Act included provisions such as allowing child marriage registration.

Accused of polarizing votes

The opposition attacked the government’s decision and said that it is a discriminatory policy against Muslims. The opposition alleged that this was an attempt to polarize voters in the election year. In this context, Congress MLA Abdul Rashid Mandal said that during the election time, the government is trying to polarize the voters. This is a discriminatory decision against Muslims. At the same time, All India United Democratic Front MLA Rafiqul Islam alleged that the cabinet decision has been taken with the intention of targeting Muslims in the election year.

Attempt to provoke Muslims

All India United Democratic Front President Badruddin Ajmal today i.e. on Saturday claimed that the repeal of the Assam Muslim Marriage and Divorce Registration Act, 1935 is the first step towards bringing Uniform Civil Code (UCC) in Assam, but it is not an attempt by the BJP in the state. This will prove to be the last nail in the coffin of the government. The Assam Cabinet approved the repeal of this law on Friday night. Speaking to the media, Ajmal said that they are trying to instigate Muslims and polarize voters in their favor.

Will protest after the elections

Ajmal said that repealing the Act is the first step of the BJP government towards introducing UCC in the state, but it will lead to the downfall of the BJP government in Assam. He said that we will definitely oppose the repeal of the Act, but after the elections. We will remain silent for now. Referring to the one-time compensation of Rs 2 lakh given to Qazis who conduct Muslim marriages for their rehabilitation after the repeal of the law, Ajmal said that Qazis are not beggars.
