Registration of marriage opposed by muslim bodies

The decision to make registration of marriage mandatory has been opposed by the muslim bodies. Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is set for a showdown with the Centre. The general body meeting of the apex Muslim body, to be held soon, is expected to be stormy with the clergy ready to tear into the “insidious designs to infringe the Shariat rules”.
AIMPLB member Zafaryab Jilani said the board had made its reservations on the issue clear three years ago when the proposal was first floated. A committee headed by Maulana Ibrahim Rasool Ilyasi had conducted a survey of all states and presented a report to then law minister Veerappa Moily.

Mr. Jilani claimed, stated that while registration of marriage for certain official dealings was acceptable, holding it up as a prime condition, the violation of which could nullify a marriage, would be deemed a gross violation of Muslim personal law. Jilani is now the additional advocate general of UP.
