Muslim Personal Board’s Double Speak On Triple Talaq
By L.S. Herdenia
BHOPAL: All India Muslim Personal Board after its two-day meet here seems to have chosen the policy of no-confrontation with the government or judiciary on the issue of triple talaq. Reiterating its well-known stand of no interference in matters of Shariah, the Board gave a call for reform to end the practice of instant triple talaq.
The Board adopted a novel method to refute the Supreme Court’s claim that the majority of Muslim women are against triple talaq. It organised an exclusive meet of Muslim women in an open maiden where several women speakers and also some members of the Board stated: “Triple talaq is bad but effective under certain circumstances, dilution in Sharia will lead to abandonment of women after divorce”.
