Lucknow [India]: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Thursday said that Muslims did not want any interference in the Shariyat law.
“The performa submitted to the law commission contains declaration of three things. We do not want any interference in the Shariyat law, we don’t want the Uniform Civil Code and neither do we want any change in the provision of triple talaq,” AIMPLB member Zafaryab Jilani told ANI.
The digitalised list of all signatories, which include 2.5 crore women has been submitted to the Chairman of the Law Commission, he said.
From May 11, a five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court will start hearing petitions against triple talaq.
The court will hear pleas filed by several Muslim women challenging the practice under which men can divorce their wives instantly by uttering the word ‘talaq’ thrice.
To counter the AIMPLB, Muslim women across the country have formed pressure groups and spearheaded signature campaigns demanding the abolition of the controversial practice. (ANI)
