Muslim board to challenge triple talaq law
LUCKNOW: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Saturday decided to challenge the constitutionality of the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriages) Act 2019, which criminalises instant triple talaq .
Members of the board passed a resolution stating that “far from protecting rights of Muslim women and children in marriage, the law will destroy marriages and render the Muslim women destitute”. The working committee also called the concept of Uniform Civil Code a “threat to diversity”. “The board will oppose any attempt to destroy the nation’s fabric through court or legislative measures,” the AIMPLB said.
On the Ayodhya case, the board was hopeful the SC will pronounce a “judgment in favour of the Muslim cause, which will be based on right, fair play and justice”. It reiterated its stand that the land dedicated to a mosque cannot be transferred in any manner as it’s prohibited under Sharia
