Muslim board seeks recall of talaq bill

Triple talaq bill to be introduced in Lok Sabha on Dec 28

Apart from this, it is also an attempt to interfere with Muslim personal law.

The Supreme Court of India on August 22, 2017 while terming instant or triple talaq against the principles of Quran and Shariah invalidated the evil practice and asked the government to bring a legislation on it in the parliament.

"In other religions women have right to place their side and have legal protection, but to deny the muslim women the same rights goes against the principle of equality and hence triple talaq can not be justified", said Naik.

Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has appended a "Statement of Objects and Reasons" to The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which has been tabled in Parliament. "The President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) will convey this stand to Prime Minister Modi and request him to withhold and withdraw the bill", board's spokesperson Sajjad Nomani said while talking to media after the All India Muslim Personal Law (AIMPLB) meeting held at Nadwatul Ulema in Lucknow.

Bebaak Collective, a women's rights group that played a pivotal role in the Shayara Bano case, has warned that "the move to imprison Muslim men will add to the prevailing insecurity and alienation of the Muslim community".

The bill defines triple talaq as "any pronouncement (of divorce) by a person upon his wife by words, either spoken or written or in electronic form, or in any other manner".

On the inaugural run, the train began its journey from Borivli to Churchgate station of the Western Railway (WR). Initially, the Mumbai AC local will run between Borivali and Churchgate and will be extended up to Virar.

Rahmani said the personal law board had framed a code of conduct in April this year, "in the light of Sharia", against the instant triple talaq. It was hoped that being citizens of a democratic, progressive and responsive society, Indian Muslim clerics and other religious leaders would support steps that empower Muslim women and discard gender discriminatory practices such as triple talaq.

"By recommending jail for a man pronouncing (the instant) triple talaq, the Centre is depriving a woman of her means of subsistence after divorce".

Jafaryab Zilani, the convener of the board, was quoted as saying at the meeting that the bill violated the freedom of religion enshrined in the Constitution.

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

"What is most glaring is that a man will be arrested on a complaint from a third party even if the wife accepts the (instant) triple talaq pronounced on her by her husband".
