Heres what AIMPLB had to say on passing of bill criminalizing triple talaq
A day after the Parliament passed the bill banning and criminalizing ‘triple talaq’, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) came out to express serious reservations.
The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill as it is known was passed by the Lok Sabha but the AIMPLB said that it will strive to through democratic means to “amend, improve or scrap” it.
The Shia Waqf Board, meanwhile, called for making the punishment to those indulging in ‘triple talaq’ more stringent.
However, AIMPLB member Zafaryab Jilani hinted that the board may approach the Supreme Court against the triple talaq bill once it is passed by the Parliament.
AIMPLB insisted that it wanted the triple talaq bill to not be in conflict with either the Constitution, Supreme Court order or the Muslim Personal Law Board.
The president of the All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) Shaista Amber welcomed the tabling of the bill but insisted that it should be in the light of Quran.
She, however, added that any law enacted in this regard should be in the light of the Quran and Constitution to make it acceptable to the community.
President of the Shia Waqf Board, Wasim Rizvi however said that he had sent a letter to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making the punishment to those indulging in the practice more stringent. >
