Opposing any amendments to “triple talaq”, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has reportedly informed the Law Commission that it is fully satisfied with Islamic Laws.
According to a report in The Economic Times, in its one page pro forma submitted to the Law Commission, the board said that AIMPLB is fully satisfied with the commands of Islamic laws, especially on Islamic orders related to nikah (marriage), talaq (divorce), fasakh (annulment) and virasat (inheritance).
“We are fully satisfied with and strongly deny the possibility of any type of change in them,” ET quoted from the board’s document submitted to the Law Commission.
“The Constitution of India has provided complete freedom for followers of all faiths to practice their religion. We, therefore, do not accept uniform civil code in any form,” it added.
According to the ET report, the AIMPLB claims to have obtained signatures from over four crore Muslims endorsing its pro forma.
The board has asked all the signatories to email a copy of the pro forma to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister’s Office and Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
The Law Commission, on its part, is presently tabulating and examining the suggestions on uniform civil code and triple talaq.
The Supreme Court will be examining the matter of “triple talaq” during the summer break this year.
