The All Indian Muslim Personal Law Board and various other Muslim outfits on Thursday opposed the Law Commission's questionnaire on Uniform Civil Code. They announced their boycott of the move, accusing the government of waging a "war" against the community.

Addressing a press conference, they contended that Uniform Civil Code (UCC), if implemented, will paint all people in "one colour" which will threaten the country's pluralism and diversity.

Trashing government's stand on the issue of triple talaq, the outfits instead claimed the community has reported lesser number of divorce cases vis-à-vis other communities, especially the Hindu community which, they said, has reported higher divorce ratio according to Census 2011.
