Sri Lanka: What We Did Not Know About ACJU

Public interest according to numerous prominent scholars of Islamic jurisprudence is ensured by preserving universal values such as justice, freedom, human dignity, equality, life, property, etc.

( April 25, 2017, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) ACJU’s latest media statement on the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act (MMDA) does not mention anything about altering their previous position. In other words they are still right. How can they not be? They are the Jammiyathul Ulama – The union of scholars. The statement has changed nothing except to defend their infallible president. Apparently according to the ACJU Rizvi Mufthi’s following statement, “Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act (MMDA) is perfect in its present state”, has been misinterpreted to mean that the MMDA is perfect in its present state.
