Community members misusing triple talaq will face social boycott: AIMPLB

Triple Talaq: MPL Board assures end of practice within 18 month

Triple Talaq: MPL Board assures end of practice within 18 month

"There has been misunderstanding on this issue, we will issue a code of conduct on it", he added.

The All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) asked the Uttar Pradesh government to draft a strict law against triple talaq, similar to the one which banned the practice of sati, to prevent Muslim women from getting victimised.

On Ayodhya dispute, the AIMPLB made it clear that it is not in favour of any out-of-court settlement as was suggested recently by the apex court on the issue.

Muslim men who misuse triple talaq and use it arbitrarily without valid reason will be subjected to social boycott, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board warned on Sunday.

The Centre and some NGOs, who are a party in the case in the SC, have submitted that triple talaq violates the right to gender equality. It notably does not recommend instant divorce or triple talaq as a way of separation.

"These days, there is a new debate in the country on a burning issue. The issue has been blown out of proportion by the media and by people who are cut off from the ground realities", the board said. He said our Muslim sisters should also get justice.

In his address to the BJP national executive here, he said there should not be any "conflict" in the Muslim community over this issue.

On Adityanath's statement, AIMPLB General Secretary Maulana Wali Rahmani said, "I don't know how to react to the jaahilaanaa (foolish) statement". No sane person will do so. According to the sources in the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), the members fear that agreeing to any change on triple talaq would open floodgate of interference in other Sharia matters. Triple talaq, itself, is an abuse and should be banned. Muslim scholars and jurists argue that concurrent talaq or triple talaq in one go has never been approved by Prphet Mohammad (peace be upon him), during the tenure of first Caliph Abu Bakr (RA) and the first two years of Caliph Omar's caliphate. "An amendment in the rule is the need of the hour", he had admitted.

"Triple talaq is wrong as also is the tendency to remain silent on this issue".

He, however, said that it was wrong to draw an analogy between triple talaq and disrobing of Draupadi as mentioned in Mahabharata. "Giving triple talaq in one go to a woman is a sin, but it can not be equated to disrobing (of Draupadi)", he said.

"We have conducted a countrywide survey on triple 'talaq.' The findings reveal that the rate of divorce is lowest among the Muslims". It still considers women as objects and is not ready to let them enjoy their fundamental rights.

Khan said that even if a law is made against the Shariat then Muslims would follow only Shariat.
