AIMPLB terms central govt’s law on ‘triple talaq’ as ‘dangerous’; heres more
In an effort to convince the central government, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Sunday urged the to withhold and withdraw its Bill to outlaw instant triple talaq.
The AIMPLB stated that making a law on the issue would go against the principles of Shariah and an interference in Muslim personal law.
AIMPLB also convened an emergency meeting on the issue and concluded that the bill would be “dangerous”.
The Board also said that it would oppose it at all levels and make people aware that neither it nor other “true representatives” of Muslims were consulted before preparing the legislation.
The AIMPLB president Maulana Rabe Hasani Nadwi would be conveying its stand to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Board said.
The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill gives legal right to Muslim women against talaq-e-biddat or instant triple talaq.
Cleared by the Cabinet, the Bill will be introduced by the government in Parliament next week.
The Bill clearly lays out the consequences of talaq-e-biddat , the criminality attached to it and its consequences, along with the right of custody of minor children. >
