Triple talaq system to stay, says AIMPLB - The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Thursday said there was no scope of change in the triple talaq system and overruled the suggestion made by some community outfits for making a three-month period compulsory before settlement of divorce.
AIMPLB spokesman Maulana Abdul Raheem Qureshi said that though as per Quran and Hadith, "triple talaq" is a crime, but once uttered the process would be considered complete and cannot be changed.
He said that through various sections of media he has come to know that the All India Sunni Ulema Council had addressed a letter to the Board along with Deobandi and Barelvi sects if there was any room in Islamic law then "talaq" said by a person thrice in one go, should be considered as said only once.
General secretary of Jamat Raza-e-Mustafa, a religious and social unit of center of Barelvi sect, Maulana Shahabuddin said the demand to disallow triple talaq had been raised in the past as well.
"But the religious leaders of Hanafi, Shaafai, Maliki and Hambli sects decided that once uttered thrice, talaq will be considered complete," he added.
