Uttar Pradesh: Move to remove loudspeakers gains momentum

Untold India April 27, 2022

Lucknow : The campaign to remove loudspeakers from religious shrines is gaining momentum in Uttar Pradesh and nearly 433 loudspeakers have been removed from various shrines in Lucknow alone, on Wednesday.
Nearly 683 loudspeakers were taken down across Sitapur district and the volume of 395 loudspeakers was lowered as per the parameters.
According to the home department spokesman, information in this regard is being given to temples, mosques, gurudwaras, churches and marriage halls with the directive to follow the guidelines.
The home department has instructed police stations to make a list of all such places and send their reports to the home department by April 30.
“Following the order of court and government, information is being given to everyone regarding noise pollution. This information is being given to all temples, mosques, gurudwaras, churches and marriage halls. People are following the guidelines,” said Yogesh Kumar, ACP Kaiserbagh, Lucknow.
The Supreme Court, in June 2005, had banned the use of loudspeakers and music systems in public between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. (except in cases of public emergencies), citing the serious effects of noise pollution on the health of those residents who live in such areas.
Several religious organisations and members of the Muslim community are appealing to the mosque trustees to abide by the Supreme Court guidelines related to playing loudspeakers at religious places.

Government must focus on people’s issues not on civil code which violates fundamental rights : AIMPLB

Untold India April 27, 2022

By Special Correspondent
New Delhi: In response to media reports about the BJP-led government’s attempt to resurrect the Uniform Civil Code issue, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board on Tuesday described these efforts as tending to violate the Indian Constitution, which guarantees every citizen the right to live according to his or her religion. It also infringes on citizens’ fundamental rights, according to the Board. Board said the ruling regime must abandon diversionary tactics and focus on people’s pressing concerns.
Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, General Secretary, All India Muslim Personal Law Board, stated that the Constitution of India has allowed every citizen of the country to live according to his religion, and this is a fundamental right.
“Under the same right, separate personnel laws have been granted for minorities and tribal classes according to their customs, beliefs and traditions, which does not interfere with the constitution in any way,” Maulana Rahmani underlined and adding that ,”Rather, it helps maintain mutual trust between the minority and the majority communities.
He recalled that in the past, in order to put an end to many tribal uprisings, the constitution accommodated their beliefs and traditions in social life.
Instead of raking up such non-issues, Board General Secretary said the government must focus on people’s issues.
“Now the adoption of the Uniform Civil Code by the Uttarakhand or Uttar Pradesh government or the central government is just a timeless rhetoric and everyone knows that their purpose is not to address issues such as rising inflation, falling economy and rising unemployment.
He said the attempt means to deflect public attention from the failures of the movements.
“The Uniform civil code issue has been brought up to divert attention from real issues and promote an agenda of hatred and discrimination. This anti-constitutional move is not acceptable to Muslims at all. The All India Muslim Personal Law Board strongly condemns this and urges the government to refrain from such actions”.
