Triple Talaq case: AIMPLB's affidavit 'desperate attempt to divert attention', says AG 23.5.2017 DNA: India
 Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi today termed the All India Muslim Personal Law Board's affidavit in the Supreme Court on its advisory on triple talaq a "mere eyewash" and said it was an attempt to gain "legal sanctity among the community". The Attorney General also questioned the locus of the AIMPLB to issue any advisory against the practice of triple talaq and said it was a "desperate attempt" on its part to divert the attention of the apex court, which has already reserved its verdict on the issue. In an affidavit filed in the apex court yesterday, the AIMPLB had said that those who resort to triple talaq will face "social boycott" and an advisory will be issued to the 'Qazis' that they should tell the grooms that they will not resort to such a form of divorce. Rohatgi said the Muslim body, which has admitted in the top court that the practice of triple talaq was "not good", should have enlightened the five-judge constitution bench to declare triple talaq invalid. "I think this affidavit of AIMPLB is ...

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) will issue an advisory to all qazis and imams asking them to advise couples, at the time of nikah, not to use instant triple talaq. The AIMPLB also added that the qazis and imams will inform the wife that she can exclude the husband’s right to give instant triple talaq and add this in the nikahnamma. The AIMPLB’s undertaking, supporting their contention that “triple talaq is an undesirable practice”, comes barely a week after the conclusion of the hearings in the triple talaq case. In its affidavit, it added, Muslim men who resort to the triple talaq would face social boycott. “Social boycott will help in decreasing the incidents of divorce,”the affidavit read. “The Board’s working committee had earlier already passed certain resolutions in the meeting held April 15 and April 16 in relation to divorce (talaq) in the Muslim community.

Muslim resorting to triple talaq to face 'social boycott': AIMPLB tells SC 22.5.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Muslims resorting to triple talaq will face "social boycott" and an advisory will be issued to the 'Qazis' that they should tell the grooms that they will not resort to such a form of divorce, a prominent Muslim body told the Supreme Court today. Dubbing triple talaq as an "undesirable practice" in the Shariat or Islamic law, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said a dispute between husband and wife should be settled through "mutual interaction" and a code of conduct on this has been released by it, keeping in mind the tenets of the Shariat. The AIMPLB, which filed an affidavit, said that in order to discourage triple talaq as a form of divorce, it has decided to "socially boycott" those Muslims who resort to saying talaq in one go and reduce such divorce incidents. It told the apex court, which had heard the pleas challenging the practice of triple talaq at length for six days, that it has already passed a resolution in its working committee meeting on April 15-16 against the practice of ...

Cleric offers Rs 20L to garland Pak PM with shoes 20.5.2017 DNA: Mumbai
A day after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistani authorities, Muslim religious leader Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi — who had earlier hit the headlines for issuing a fatwa against singer Sonu Nigam — on Friday announced an award of Rs 20 lakh for anyone who would put a garland of Jadhav’s shoes around Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and make him go around India. “Looking at Pakistan, which is patronising terror and is trying to execute Jadhav in an unfair manner, I announce that whoever puts a garland of Jadhav’s shoes around Sharif’s neck and parades him across India would get Rs 20 lakh from me,” Quaderi said at a press conference. “Pakistan calls itself an Islamic country. We perform namaz and carry out fasts according to the holy inscription. Now that there are so many so-called ‘Islamic terror groups’, they should come clean about which portion of the Holy Quran that they follow asks them to spread terror,” he said. Sharif also added ...

Muslim women may be given the right to reject triple talaq: top court 19.5.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Adopting a conciliatory position on the last day of the triple talaq hearing, The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) submitted that it would ask all Qazis to give Muslim women the option of taking triple talaq off the table in the nikahnama (marriage contract). The AIMPLB’s suggestion came in response to a query posed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday, when it asked if it was possible to include a provision in the nikahnama, enabling Muslim women to say no to triple talaq. Representing the Muslim body, senior advocate Kapil Sibal submitted that the AIMPLB should not be dismissed as an NGO. It was a congregation of people who are engaged in the study of Islam. “Hence, whatever they say must not be dismissed,” he said. The court, however, was not convinced. It asked the Muslim board that if they considered the practice sinful, then how could it be practised? “Lots of sinful things are practiced by society and they are protected by law,” Sibal said. The SC on Thursday reserved its judgment on the ...
