IN ORDER to boost social reforms and control evils fast creeping into Muslim community the All-India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has convened a conference here on January 31 to thoroughly discuss the issues haunting the community.
Under Islahe Mashra (reform in society) programme the board has long been carrying on all India campaign but there had not been considerable improvement.
While laying stress on simple living the board has been making desperate efforts for convincing people about drastically controlling expenditure during marriages.
The board wants that wedding should be solemnised in accordance with the Islamic laws.
The day-long conference, apart from reviewing the progress on this front, will also chalk out further action plan. Members of the committee from various states will present their reports at the meeting to be chaired by AIMPLB chairman Maulana Syed Rabey Hasani Nadvi.
The Imam of Eidgah and AIMPLB member Maulana Khalid Rashid said that the purpose of the conference was to discuss and deliberate how to remove social evils like dowry, triple talaq, lavish wedding and liquor consumption and to live and pass a life based on the tenets of Islam. He said the board had already nominated members and conveners in various States and they would submit reports with their suggestions.
The conference will also discuss how to teach the youth a lesson in decent behaviour with women and wives and refusal to take dowry. He said the board would make concerted efforts that the resolutions passed at the conference could be implemented strictly.
