AIMPLB announces To Do Away With Triple Talaq In 18 Months, Objects To Govt. Intervention
Lakhanpur: The debate on the contentious issue of triple talaq has taken many twists and turns with political parties dividing over the issue. As a number of petitions are being filed in the apex court to abolish the system of triple talaq, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) finally responded positively about the issue.
The Board which was of the strong view that this is the personal issue of Muslims said that they would abolish this system within one and half years, and the intervention of the government is not necessary. Interestingly the Law Board vice-president Dr Sayeed Sadiq announcement came after the AIMPLB claimed that Muslim community has a low rate divorce and very few women are supporting the abolition of triple talaq. However, all of a sudden the Board announce about doing away with it on Tuesday.
A workshop was held on April 9th under the auspices of Muslim Personal Law Board women’s wing chief organiser Asma Johra. Speaking on this occasion, she said that very few women supported the abolition of triple talaq. “Nearly 3.5 crore Muslim women support Shariat and triple talaq,” she added. In this context, the announcement of Sadiq became a point of discussion.
