AIMPLB hits back at UP CM Yogi Adityanath on Triple talaq issue

Following is the code of conduct which Muslim couple have to follow while taking divorce from triple talaq.

Amid the ongoing debate on the issue of Triple Talaq and Uniform Civil Code, a delegation of the Muslim Personal Law board led by general secretary Maulana Mohammed Wali Rahmani met the chairman of the Law Commission of India Justice Balbir Singh on Thursday and handed over scanned copies of signatures from Muslims across the country favouring Sharia laws under Muslim Personal Law. "That was the Prime Minister's spirit", Gadkari said quoting Modi.

Adityanath, known for his hardline Hindutva image, questioned the "silence" of the political class on the "burning issue" of triple talaq.

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

"It has been decided in executive body meeting that those misusing triple talaq will face social boycott", The Times of India quoted AIMLPB's Maulana Khalid R Firangi as saying.

The AIMLPB and other clerics have argued that triple talaq has the sanction of the Quran, forms part of Muslim personal law and, therefore, falls squarely outside the purview of the judiciary.

Abbas said many Muslim countries have already put an end to the practice as it is directly linked to the lives of Muslim women.

The constitutional validity of triple talaq is now under review in India's Supreme Court.

Speaking on the occasion AIMPLB president Mohammaed Rabey Hasan Nadwi said, "If some people misuse it (triple talaq), the need is not to change the law but to correct such people".

Interestingly, some renowned Hanafi scholars have also ruled against concurrent or triple talaq. Abbas drew a parallel between pronouncing triple talaq in one go and the sati, the banned Hindu practice of the wife immolating herself on the dead husband's funeral pyre.

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

The Board's Muslim Wing Head Dr Asma Zehra alleged that Muslim women have full faith in personal laws and the issue is hyped by some section of media.

Last year, a high court in India had said that the Islamic practice violated the equality of women.
