Sambhal: A group of imams, under the banner of Tehreek Islah-e-Ummat in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambal district, has said that marriages where DJs are used and song and dance performances held, would not be solemnised as these are against the ‘Shariat’.

 

 

At a meeting on August 15, a decision was taken by this group to act against social evils and extravagance in marriages including the use of DJs and song and dance performances.

 

 

“It has been decided to act against social evils. And for this, we have decided that we will not get a marriage solemnised if people did not shun these evils. We will boycott such marriages, where DJs are used, dance and music are performed as these are against Shariat,” Shahar Imam Kaji Mugrab, who chaired the meeting, said.

 

 

The meeting was attended by 40 imams of the city and many others, he said.

 

 

Another member of the organisation, Mutwalli Badre Alam said that three key decisions were taken at the meeting.

 

Now imams against using of DJs, dance in weddings:

 

These were not to attend or solemnise marriages where there is an “open display of dowry”, use of DJ, loud music and dance as well as discouraging buffet systems where people eat while standing, Alam said.

 

 

“It was seen that when DJs are playing, the youth dance in an inebriated state and sometimes indulge in celebratory firing causing deaths. We will not be attending and solemnising such nikaahs,” he said.

 

 

The organisation also decided not to favour those weddings where a buffet system is place and people eat while standing.

A committee has been formed by the organisation to make people aware of these decisions.

‘Love jihad’: Samajwadi Party to oppose law in UP Assembly, here’s why

A day after Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel signed the ordinance on forced religious conversions, the Samajwadi Party announced that it will oppose the ‘love jihad’ law when it comes up in the Assembly next month.

Samajwadi Party (SP)President Akhilesh Yadav said his party is not in favour of such a law and will oppose it strongly.

“On one hand, the government offers Rs 50,000 to those opting for inter-caste and inter-religion marriages, and on the other, they have brought this law. We will ask the government to bring a law which guarantees doubling of farmers’ income instead,” he said.

The SP chief accused the BJP government of planning to sell a government-owned shopping mall worth Rs 1,000 crore to a private entity at throwaway prices. He further added that an expressway was also being sold in a similar fashion.

“This will be probed when time comes. We will expose the corruption this government is indulging in,” he said.

Akhilesh further said it is ironic that the government talks of zero tolerance for corruption but, in an international survey, the country has figured on the top of the list of nations where bribery is most prevalent.

Reacting to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s announcement of setting up 10,000 MW solar power units, Yadav said, “He does not know anything about a solar panel. During the SP government, we had set up a solar power unit. The unit produced enough power to meet the needs of an entire village, but this government snapped the supply saying the villagers have not paid bills.”
