Triple talaq: Adityanath fumes over practice, AIMPLB hits back

The court said it would hold daily sittings between May 11 and May 19 to decide pleas by Muslim women to declare the practice of oral talaq illegal.

Released an eight-point code of conduct for divorce, the Board encouraged Muslim couples to try and resolve differences on their own, and if that fails, adopt the "reconciliation and arbitration" method though involvement of family elders, before settling for a divorce.

He also urged the Centre to introduce a law which would ensure equal rights for Muslim women.

"We welcome Prime Minister Modi's initiative on the issue of triple talaq but he should also make efforts towards improving "girls' education".

Sai Praneeth beats Kidambi Srikanth to win Singapore Open Super Series
Also in the second game I had a good four-five points lead but I couldn't capitalise on it and that really made the difference. In the first game, Srikanth played some angled shots to set up his points and then used his accurate smashes to seal them.

The Ministry of Law and Jus- tice, in its affidavit, had referred to constitutional principles like gender equality, secularism, in- ternational covenants, religious practices and marital law preva- lent in various Islamic countries to advocate that the practice of tri- ple talaq and polygamy needed to be adjudicated upon afresh by the apex court.

Subjecting these people to social boycott would serve as a deterrence, the Board said.

The Union government on October 7 previous year opposed in the SC the triple talaq and other Islamic practices such as "nikah halala" and polygamy and favoured a relook in their continuation on grounds such as gender equality and secularism.

Rahmani argued that triple talaq has the sanction of the Quran and falls outside the purview of the judiciary. "No out-of-court settlement is acceptable to us", AIMPLB General Secretary Maulana Wali Rehmani told reporters.

"AIMPLB is responsible for all the problems faced by Muslims in the country".

Khan said that even if a law is made against the Shariat then Muslims would follow only Shariat.

The organisation, she said, has already received 15,500 calls on its Muslim women helpline number 18001028426 so far. "We don't know what the Prime Minister Modi intends to do and in what manner he is going to help and assist Muslim women".

The Allahabad HC ruled last December that triple talaq violates the equality of women as provided by the Constitution.
