Lucknow: The All-India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is planning to include a clause in its model “nikaahnama” in which the groom will have to give an undertaking that he will not resort to the practice of triple talaq. The Board is expected to take up this issue in its meeting, scheduled to be held in Hyderabad on February 9.

The Board, it may be recalled, has been opposed to the practice of triple talaq but has also opposed government interference in Shariat laws.

 

“Much before the government came in, the Board has been opposed to triple talaq but we do not appreciate any government interference in religious matters. We are planning to include a clause in the ‘nikaahnama’ in which the groom will have to promise that he will not practice triple talaq,” said Maulana Khalilullah Sajjad Nomani, the Board’s spokesperson.

The Board is not in favour of a ban on triple talaq. The spokesperson said that, in certain circumstances, triple talaq actually worked in favour of the wife.

“We had kept the interest of the woman and the family in mind while drafting him model ‘nikaahnama’ and including other clauses in the document. We stated that if talaq was inevitable, the husband should give it one at a time so that he gets time to see reason,” said another senior Board member.

 

The All-India Muslim Women Personal Law Board had earlier supported the ban on triple talaq and had even criticised the AIMPLB for opposing the government’s move to bring a bill banning triple talaq, now seems to have had a change of heart.
