We have ‘constitutional’ right to follow Muslim personal law: AIMPLB

AMN /Lucknow

Sticking to its well known view on the issue of Triple Talaq, Halala and other religious matters, the all India Muslim Personal Law Board,  AIMPLB,  asserted that it had the “constitutional” right to follow Muslim personal law.

On the talaq issue, the Board has decided to issue a code of conduct and warned that those who give talaq (divorce) without ‘Sharia’ (Islamic law) reasons will face social boycott.

wali rahmani“A code of conduct for Talaq is being issued. With its help, the real picture of Shariyat directives will be brought out on the talaq issue. If talaq is given without Shariat reasons, those involved will be socially boycotted,”  General secretary of the Board Wali Rehmani told media  here.

The board is issuing appeals to all maulanas and imams of mosques to read out the code of conduct during Friday ‘namaz’ and emphasise on its implementation, he said.

The Board has made it clear that it will not tolerate any interference in the Shariat laws, and claimed that majority of the Muslims in the country do not want any change in their personal law.

On the Babri Masjid issue, AIMPLB General Secretary Maulana Wali Rehmani said the board would accept the Supreme Court’s decision on the matter while stressing that “no outside settlement was acceptable”.

Rehmani had earlier said that in the recent signature campaign initiated by the AIMPLB across the country, both men and women have said that the Constitution of India guarantees them the provision to practice their own religion.

He had also urged that no roadblocks should be put in the implementation of the personal laws.

The Union government had on October 7 last year opposed in the Supreme Court the practice of triple talaq, ‘nikah halala’ and polygamy among Muslims and favoured a relook on grounds like gender equality and secularism.

The Ministry of Law and Justice, in its affidavit, had referred to constitutional principles like gender equality, secularism, international covenants, religious practices and marital law prevalent in various Islamic countries to advocate that the practice of triple talaq and polygamy needed to be adjudicated upon afresh by the apex court.
