To engage citizens with the center on an important issue of Uniform Civil Code, a software engineer has developed a website as a platform to give Muslim voices a chance. The website, developed by Syed Khalid Saifullah went live on Sunday.

This comes at a time when the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has called for a massive boycott of the questionnaire on Uniform Civil Code put forward by Law Commission of India.

 “The thought came about during discussions among professionals. With all due respect to the AIMPLB and its call for boycotting the questionnaire, we thought it best that those who wish should be able to respond. It is clear that Muslims do not want the introduction of the UCC,” Khalid told a leading daily.

The developers realised the fact that by not replying to the Law Commission’s questionnaire the community is loosing a good opportunity to put forward what they think of the issue.

Once the user fills it and completes the selection, a soft copy of the same is generated after which an email is sent to the Law Commission of India with the personal details of the respondent.
