Centre trying to attack personal law, says AIMPLB

Agencies, Bhopal

The emotive triple-talaq issue took a fresh new turn today with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) saying that the attempt by the Centre to “attack” distinctive legislation would not be tolerated.

“The Centre has submitted – in the Supreme Court – that all instances of triple talaq effected sans legal intervention be declared unconstitutional. The Board expressed displeasure over the same. The AIMPLB decided to constitute a committee that would study the apex court’s verdict and proffer suggestions in accordance with Islamic beliefs,” Working Committee Member K Faruqui told media tonight after an AIMPLB meeting that took up the entire day and witnessed attendance by about 45 of 51 members.

Regarding the case pertaining to demolition of the disputed structure in Ayodhya, he said that it concerns property – there should no hasty decision and no action must be taken on the basis of one side’s statement. “If any talaq case comes to light it ought not to be assumed that the woman is being subjected to harassment. Even in the prevailing circumstances, most ladies side with the shariat,” the Board’s Women’s Wing Convener A Zehra averred.
