AIMPLB asks for withdrawing Triple Talaq bill, shocking says BJP

"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.

However, a brief survey of the provisions of the Bill indicate that the end result of this landmark piece of legislation, if passed in its current form, will be the harassment of Muslim men. It can't be a cognizable offence if wife has no desire to see errant husband punished.

"If the government feels it is very important, it should first talk to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board and Muslim women organisations", he said.

He said the terms of the proposed Bill also encroach upon the guarantees given in the Constitution to religious denominations, as well as go against the essence of the Supreme Court judgment on August 22 that banned instant triple talaq. The government introducing a bill that seeks to criminalise the act is hasty, ill-conceived and cruel.

"It is against the principles of Shariah and an interference in Muslim personal law", AIMPLB spokesperson Maulana Khalilur Rahman Sajjad Nomani said, refuting the stated objective of the legislation of protecting the rights of married Muslim women.

"On Sunday, the Board examined the Bill at its emergency meeting and found that its consequences are against the welfare of Muslim women at large and will harm the interests of Muslim women and families".

Many others also talked about the bear, with one saying, "Omg I love that bear!" and another added, "Where did you get the bear". And now the Hunger Games star has proven her affinity for once again, this time with the purchase of a vehicle .

AIMPLB, being a self-proclaimed representative body of Indian Muslims should have come up with their own version of draft bill instead of just condemning or requesting central government to withdraw it but as usual, they failed to give a concrete solution.

In a separate written reply, Union Law Minster Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "The government is of the view that the issue arises from the humanitarian concept of gender justice, gender equality and dignity of women and not arising from faith and religion".

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.

"No procedure was followed in drafting this bill, neither any stakeholder was consulted".

It's high time for AIMPLB to come out from shade of a particular sect and start representing the whole community without any bias or else the time will come when it will lose relevance with the Indian Muslims.
