Muslim Board concerned over 'interference' in personal laws
All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Saturday expressed serious concern over what it termed as "interference" in the 'shariat' (Islamic Law) even as it maintained that 'triple talaq' was in accordance with the Islamic law.
 
The AIMPLB, an apex body of Muslim personal law in the country, also said that it would put forth its point of view on the personal issues, including triple talaq, in the Supreme Court, which was currently hearing a petition on the same.
 
The two-day meeting of the executive committee of the Board, which began here on Saturday,  discussed these issues in detail and decided to launch a nationwide campaign to register its protest over alleged ‘’interference’’ and create awareness among the community on the matters pertaining to Islam.
 
‘’There is a lot of misconception among the people on issues concerning the shariat... there is a need to make the people aware of the true interpretation of the shariat so that there is no confusion’’, said a senior Board member after the meeting.
 
He said that the Board would also write to the prime minister Narendra Modi urging him to ensure that there was no interference in the Muslim personal laws.
 
The Board member also said that the issue of Babri Masjid and maintenance allowance and some other social issues were also discussed at the meeting.
 
The meeting of the AIMPLB is being held amid raging debate on the issue of triple talaq and a demand from a section of the Muslim women to abolish the practice.
 
The AIMPLB has so far indicated that it is in no mood to give in to the demand though it has decided to tackle the issue on social level. It had also launched a signature campaign on triple talaq and uniform civil code last year to register its protest against any move to change the Muslim practice.
