Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: The All-India Muslim Women’s Personal Law Board sided on Tuesday with the government on a bill seeking to criminalize instant triple talaq, which the All-India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has opposed. They requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw the bill, which is set to be introduced in the Lok Sabha on Thursday. 

Board’s president Maulana Rabey Hasani Nadwi wrote in a four-page letter to the Prime Minister that the bill was against the Sharia, or Islamic law, and infringes constitutional rights guaranteed to religious minorities. Government got support from the Muslim women’s personal law board, whose president Shaista Amber called the AIMPLB anti-women.The move against triple talaq follows complaints by Muslim women, who were divorced through the customary practice and denied alimony and other rights.
