Marriage Contract To Be Modified To Deter Muslims From Giving Triple Talaq, Says AIMPLB
To deter the practice of triple talaq, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board is all set to introduce a new provision in its model nikahnama in which the man has to commit that he will not give triple talaq (instant divorce), a spokesman of the board said.
The development comes at a time when the government is making a strong pitch for the passage of a bill that criminalises triple talaq, a Muslim way of divorce which is still in practice despite the Supreme Court striking it down in August last year.
The AIMPLB has maintained that it is against the practice, but it has opposed the proposed legislation saying it is interferes with Muslim Personal Law.
Yes... we are making a provision in the model nikahnama (Islamic marriage contract) in which there will be column - ‘I will not give triple talaq’.Maulana Khalil-ur-Rahman Sajjad Nomani, Spokesperson, AIMPLB
He said that a detailed discussion on the matter will be held at AIMPLB meeting in Hyderabad from Feb. 9.
