GUWAHATI: As the state government of Assam has been trying to enforce a two-child policy particularly targeting the Muslim minority community, Assam state Jamiat Ulama said that Jamiat will not make stronger the policy whether the government tries to forcefully execute it.
Alternatively, it said that it has no objection whether the policy will be implemented in an encouraging way moderately than imposing it.
Jamiat’s Assam unit secretary Maulana Fazlul Karim Qasimi told media, “Islam also supports population keep an eye on and we will be able to make stronger the government’s policy whether it’ll be done in an encouraging manner. It must not be a forced law upon the minority community.”
He added that population keep an eye on laws must encompass all community moderately than targeting a unmarried one. The body said that a policy must be relevant to everyone in the society.
He also mentioned that around 35 population keep an eye on bills were passed by the Centre since independence, but not a unmarried act was once a success.
Earlier on Sunday, chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma held a assembly with over 150 intellectuals, leading personalities from more than a few diverse fields of the Muslim minority community in the state.
Following the discussion, Sarma claimed that all of the groups have agreed to the government’s proposed population policy.
The state government has also set up eight sub-groups and these sub-groups will work on more than a few sectors for the development of the devout minority community in the state.
The CM had said that the state government will gradually execute two-child norms for availing benefits under the government schemes too.
