Bhopal: The All-India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Sunday said there should be no interference in Shariat by court or government.

The Muslim body said it respected the court, but it would not approve any kind of interference in Shariat.

 

Addressing a news conference after the meeting of the working committee of the body here late on Sunday evening, the AIMPLB leaders accused the Centre of trying to interfere in Muslim personal law and warned “This will not be tolerated”.

Taking strong exception to the Centre’s stand on the instant triple talaq before the supreme court earlier in which it  wanted the court to declare all such cases till date null and void, Kamal Faruqi, one of the board members said, “We record our displeasure (on it) and consider it an attack (by Centre) on our personal law. We categorically state that the community cannot and shall not tolerate such attacks (on Muslim personal law)”.

 

He said the Muslim body has already initiated steps to undertake reforms in the community in regards to instant triple talaq.

“It has already been declared that those going for instant triple talaq will be socially boycotted”, the AIMPLB said. The AIMPLB declared its stand on Babri Masjid issue saying that the body would only accept the court decision on the vexed matter.
