====Samastha Kerala Jam'iyyathul Ulama====
 
'''Samastha Kerala Jam'iyyathul Ulama''' (S. K. J. U.) is the religious organisation of [[E. K. Sunni]] faction [[Muslim]] scholars and clerics of the [[India]]n state of [[Kerala]]. [[E. K. Sunni]] ( ഇ. കെ. സുന്നി) is one of the powerful traditional Sunni factions of Muslims in Kerala belonging to Sunni-Shafi school of law. It is largest Muslim (Mappila) faction in Kerala in terms of number of followers and was named after the cleric [[E.K. Aboobacker Musliar]], the former leader of the Samastha Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama. Samastha Kerala Jam'iyyathul Ulama's supreme body and the working committee is called the ''Mushawara''.<ref>{{cite web|author=abelian |url=http://www.keralaislamicinstitutes.com/Islamic_Organisations/Islamic_Organisations_in_Kerala-c.html |title=Kerala Islamic Institutes |publisher=Kerala Islamic Institutes |date= |accessdate=2012-10-07}}</ref> [[C Koya Kutty Musliyar]] and [[Cherussery Zainuddeen Musliyar]] are the current President and General Secretary of Samastha Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama respectively.
 
 
The original Samastha Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama was formed in 1926 at [[Kozhikkode]], under Sayd Ba'alavi Varakkal Mullakkoya Thangal, to resist the emerging Salafi organizations. In 1989, an internal conflict divided the organisation into two, as scholars under [[Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musalyar]] came out to form the Samastha Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama (Kanthapuram). This split resulted in the formation of two factions of [[Sunni]] [[Muslims]] in [[Kerala]], [[E. K. Sunni]]s under [[E.K. Aboobacker Musliar]] and [[A. P. Sunni]]s under [[Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musalyar]]. Both political as well as philosophical grounds were raised as a reason for the split which is still a matter of disagreement among the factions.
 
 
====Registration====
 
Samastha Formed on June 26, 1926 but it was officially registered on November 14, 1934, as the government approved its bylaw, which was agreed upon after deep and wide scholarly discussions held in various ''Mushawara'' meets and in consultation with law experts. It promulgated the propagation of true Islam, impart of religious education and activities against superstitions and un-Islamic traditions as its primary and supreme objectives. Its bylaw also included encouragement for secular education compatible with religious beliefs, and calls for religious tolerance, interfaith friendship, peaceful existence and national progress.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.samasthabahrain.com/history.html |title=:: Official Website of Samastha Kerala Jam-Iyyathul Ulama, Bahrain |publisher=Samasthabahrain.com |date= |accessdate=2012-10-07}}</ref> The registration Number is S1.1934/35 at office of the Kozhikkode district registrar.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.samastha.net/samastha/samamain/index.php?page=shop.product_details&product_id=82&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53 |title=സമസ്ത രജിസ്‌ത്രേഷന്‍ |publisher=Samastha.net |date= |accessdate=2012-10-07}}</ref>
