Bijnor : All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) vice-president Kalbe Sadiq on Tuesday requested the Government to not interfere in the matter of Triple Talaq, adding the Muslim board would eradicate this evil themselves.
"The Muslim Personal Board has decided that they will eradicate this problem from the society itself. We request the government to not to interfere in this matter," said Sadiq.
Sadiq said that the Muslim Community provided talaq in such a way that the girl lives respectfully in the society, adding that it just needs some time to take a decision on the issue.
"We will do this in about a year and a half or so," he added.
The Allahabad High Court had in December 2016 held that the practice of triple talaq is 'cruel' and raised an issue that whether the Muslim Personal Law could be amended to provide relief to the Muslim women.
The High Court also stated that the form of 'instant divorce' is 'most demeaning'.
The Supreme Court is to hear multiple pleas challenging the validity of triple talaq, 'nikah halala' and polygamy practices among Muslims community on May 11 by a Constitution bench during the summer vacation.
Earlier on March 27, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) told the apex court that the pleas challenging such practices among Muslims were not maintainable as the issues fell outside the realm of judiciary.
