Complaint filed against AIMIM for urging Muslims to run ‘parallel Judiciary’ based on Sharia

In a Twitter post, LRO informed that the complaint sought for derecognition of AIMIM as a political party for 'outrageous posters', attempts to create a parallel judicial system and infusion of hatred against the Indian Judiciary.

A complaint has been filed by Legal Rights Observatory (LRO) against politician Asaduddin Owaisi’s party, All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM), for urging Muslims to disregard the Indian Judiciary in a viral poster.

The said complaint was filed with the Election Commission of India (ECI) and the Registrar of the Bombay High Court. In a Twitter post, LRO informed that the complaint sought for derecognition of AIMIM as a political party for ‘outrageous posters’, attempts to create a parallel judicial system and infusion of hatred against the Indian Judiciary.

Contentious AIMIM poster

In the contentious poster, the party has urged Muslims to join them, besides encouraging them to ignore the Indian Judiciary and run a parallel Judiciary based on Islamic law. It encouraged Muslims to resolve their issues through Ulemas (clerics) and not courts. The poster read, “Muslims, if you stop going to the courts and instead resolve your issues through an Ulema (Islamic cleric), then, no Government will have the courage to intervene in your Shariat.”

The said poster had claimed that it is from AIMIM in Andheri (W).
