Triple talaq bill is against women, will destroy families: AIMPLB

Triple talaq bill is against women, will destroy families: AIMPLB

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is a non-government organisation constituted in 1973 to adopt suitable strategies for the protection and continued applicability of Muslim Personal Law in India, most importantly, the Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act of 1937, providing for the application of the Islamic Law Code of Shariat to Muslims in India in personal affairs.

"No procedure was followed in drafting this bill, neither any stakeholder was consulted".

The non-government body held an emergency meeting in Lucknow ahead of the tabling of the bill in Parliament next week.

Nomani said that the bill was also against the spirit of the judgement of the supreme court in this regard.

He said that since the Supreme Court struck down the practice of instant triple talaq, almost 66 cases of husbands divorcing their spouses through this method were reported. The AIMPLB is right, the bill affect women drastically.

"The Centre should withdraw the proposed bill and if it considers necessary to enact such law, it must consult Board and Muslim women organisations to redraft the bill for protecting rights of Muslim women in the country", suggested Jilani.

Under the draft law, triple talaq in any form - spoken, in writing or by electronic means such as email, SMS and WhatsApp - would be bad or illegal and void. "If this bill becomes law, women will face a host of difficulties", Maulana Nomani said.




Bill in the name of Protection Rights on Marriage relating to Muslim Women wherein the consequences of Talalq e Biddat, criminality attached there to and its consequences along with the right of custody of minor children has been set out.

On Sunday, the Congress and the CPI (M) questioned the requirement of an instant triple talaq law, while the BJD, the fifth-largest party in the House, opposed the penal provision of a jail term for husbands.

The offences under the purview of this bill will be cognizable and non-bailable.

Terming the bill as "interference in their religious rights" and against provisions Articles 14, 15 and 25 of the Indian Constitution, the Board Secretary Jafrayab Jilani alleged that it is against Sharia, self-contradictory, discriminatory and anti-constitutional.

Earlier on August 22, in a historic judgment, a five-judge constitutional bench of the Supreme Court had invalidated Triple Talaq practice for six months, and had asked the Centre to make a law regarding this. "The three-year imprisonment for a husband who gives triple talaq to his wife is a point of concern".

Muslims in India, majority of them followers of Hanafi school of thought, are adamant on the invalid concurrent talaq and are fighting a case with women activists in the Supreme Court.

It is also learnt that there is a strong dissent among the members of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMLB) and especially some women members are upset over board's handling of the situation.
