Triple Talaq: MPL Board assures end of practice within 18 month

Triple Talaq: MPL Board assures end of practice within 18 month

The board said that the community would accept the decision of the Supreme Court and chose to press upon an early disposal of the case.

Rehmani said that the board has made a decision to issue a code of conduct and that those who give talaq (divorce) without "Sharia" (Islamic law) reasons will face social boycott.

While the Supreme Court is all set to begin the hearings of the petitions against triple talaq in May, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on 16 April asserted that even if a law contradicting Shariat is made, Muslim men will only follow the Shariat laws. The board on Sunday issued an eight-point code of conduct to be observed while pronouncing talaq and sought social boycott of those opting for triple talaq in one sitting.

Triple Talaq and Uniform Civil Code were an important agenda in the BJP manifesto for the recently held Uttar Pradesh elections. Talking to media persons, Rehmani said that a perception was being created that triple talaq was the order of the day for divorce among Muslims which was untrue.

The Ministry of Law and Justice, in its affidavit, had referred to constitutional principles like gender equality, secularism as well as worldwide covenants, religious practices and marital laws prevalent in Islamic countries to suggest that the practice of triple talaq and polygamy needed to be adjudicated upon afresh by the apex court.

Brendan Rodgers claimed that Celtic could finish in the Premier League's top four after winning the Scottish Premiership at a canter.

"Just as it is unfair to impose Islam on the unwilling, in the same way it is unfair to force Muslims to follow laws from other religions", he said. "We don't know what the Prime Minister Modi intends to do and in what manner he is going to help and assist Muslim women". "Muslim women are happy with their divorce laws but the media is hyping up the issue", she said.

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.

The board said it would not tolerate interferences in Sharia (Islamic law), claiming that most Muslims in the country do not want any change in personal law. This helpline is being run in seven languages including Hindi, Urdu and Bengali, she said.

"There has been misunderstanding on this issue, we will issue a code of conduct on it", he added. The board has chose to impose a "social boycott" on those misusing the practice to dissolve a marriage.
