NEW DELHI: All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB)today in an emergency meeting said that the proposed instant triple talq bill by the union government is against women and, if implemented, will destroy many families.
"No procedure was followed in drafting this bill, neither any stakeholder was consulted. President of AIMPLB will convey this stand to PM and request him to withhold and withdraw the bill", Sajjad Nomani of the AIMPLB said.

Speaking to the Media, Secretary of the board, Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani said that the board is also opposed to the practice and is in favour of a strong law. However, it is not satisfied with the current structure of the bill, especially the provision of three-year jail term.

"The board is also against instant triple talaq and agrees there should be a strong law against it and it should be made in consultation with senior clerics,"

He added, "The bill is against women in the sense that courts talk of maintenance for women and the children by the husband after the divorce but this is in contradiction of the three-year jail term proposed in the bill. How will there be maintenance provided for the wife when the husband is in jail?" said Rahmani.
