Lucknow: All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) on Wednesday while opposing the practice of concurrent talaq i.e. Triple Talaq in one sitting demanded a ban and strong law to stop its misuse.
Besides demanding a law against Triple Talaq, the All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) in its executive body meeting held in Lucknow on Wednesday also demanded a seperate committtee to protect the rights of women.
The All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) in its meeting also passed resolutions supporting "out of court settlement of Ayodhya dispute" and a ban on cow slaughter.
Member of All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) Yasoob Abbas justifying the demand for a law to ban triple talaq had earlier said there is a need for such a strong law agains triple talaq that "a man should think thrice before divorcing his wife".
Terming the issue of utmost importance, the Supreme Court of India had earlier said it would start hearing a number of petitions pertaining to Triple Talaq from May 11 during the summer vacations.
While women activists and some NGOs joined by individual victims have filed petitions against Triple Talaq, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and Jamiat Ulema Hind have the opposite view.
Terming the issue a matter relating to religion, the two NGos have also demanded from the Supreme Court to dissmiss the petitions against Triple Talaq.
The Supreme Court has however already made it clear that it would focus on "rights of women" and not on the "religious angle"of the issue during the hearing.
