The Board's Muslim Wing Head Dr Asma Zehra alleged that Muslim women have full faith in personal laws and the issue is hyped by some section of media.
In October previous year, when he addressed a rally in Uttar Pradesh, Modi said he opposed the triple talaq practice among Muslims and in the same breath he condemned the prevalence of female foeticide in Hindu society. The center and NGO's are strictly saying that triple talaq violates gender equality. Such organization should be banned as it does not work for the welfare of society but endorses practice like triple talaq that is harassment to women. "It has been decided that those misusing triple talaq will face social boycott", said AIMPLB general secretary Maulana Wali Rahmani.
"A code of conduct for talaq is being issued". PM Modi, a peerless orator and a communicator, must take his socio-political messaging on the issue to all parts of the country even as the government attempts to find legislative and judicial solutions. Anyone can see that from the time of the election campaigning for the UP election till now.
Member of the board's executive committee Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Maheli sought a clarification from the government on the minister's comment."The board has representations from all the sects of the Muslim community apart from eminent personalities like academics, retired high court judges and scholars".
Adityanath on Monday said that the politicians maintaining silence on the issue of triple talaq were equally responsible as those practising it.
Addressing the Valedictory Function of All India Sir Syed Memorial Debate 2017 organised by Aligarh Muslim University Students Union (AMUSU) and University Debating and Literary Club at the Assembly Hall, University Polytechnic (Boys), Prof Faizan Mustafa also said that a country can not be secular without giving equal right to minorities and without making minorities live without fear.
"We do not want that there is conflict within the Muslim community over this issue. We also conducted one-day awareness seminar in which many Muslim organisations participated".
The Supreme Court (SC) is now hearing a case on the constitutional validity of triple talaq, the Islamic practice some Muslims follow of divorcing their wife by pronouncing the word "talaq" three times.
