AIMPLB to direct Qazis to enlighten bridegrooms

NEW DELHI: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Monday assured the Supreme Court that grooms resorting to triple talaq will be boycotted by the community. It also assured that it will direct Qazis to enlighten bridegrooms not to annul their marriages with triple talaq.

In a 13-page affidavit filed in the apex court that is hearing a clutch of petitions against triple talaq, AIMPLB said pronouncing triple talaq in one sitting is an undesirable practice.

Disputes between husband and wife should be settled through “mutual interaction” and a code of conduct on this has been released by it, the Board assured.

However, it said triple talaq was an intrinsic part of Islam and hence any outside interference is objectionable. Muslims should solve the issue internally, the Board said.

“At the time of Nikah, Qazi’s will advise bridegrooms that in case of differences leading to talaq, the bridegroom shall not pronounce talaq in one sitting,” the affidavit said.

“At the time of performing Nikah, the Qazi shall advise bride and bridegroom to incorporate a condition in the nikahnama to exclude resorting to pronouncement of three divorces in one sitting.” “Every effort should be made to convey this message to all the segments of Muslims, especially to the poor population, and the help of Imams and orators of the mosques should be called for,” the resolution read. The advisory will be publicised through the social media and the website and publications of the law board, the affidavit added.

The board is not a statutory body, and legal experts say its advice is not binding. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar which has reserved its verdict on the issue last week will examine the affidavit.

The court on May 18 asked the Board how it could endorse triple talaq.

The AIMPLB had taken a stand argues the top court should stay away from adjudicating on the issue as it concerned the fundamental religious rights of Muslims under the constitution.

All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) was not positive on the move to submit the affidavit to the apex court at this stage.

AIMWPLB chairperson Shaista Amber said that the submission of the affidavit was an attempt to mislead people. “No matter how much they explain to the Supreme Court, they can’t prove that the rights given in the Holy Quran are being followed 100 per cent.”
