‘Saying talaq thrice in one go was not considered good in Islam’
Lucknow: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Thursday said there was no scope of change in the triple talaq system and rejected the suggestion by some community outfits for building a consensus on making a three-month period mandatory before finalisation of divorce.
Though as per Quran and Hadith, “triple talaq” is a crime, but once said the process would be considered complete and cannot be changed, AIMPLB Spokesman Maulana Abdul Raheem Qureshi said.
He said through news reports he has come to know that the All India Sunni Ulema Council had written a letter to the Board along with Deobandi and Barelvi sects that if there was any scope in Islamic law then “talaq” said by a person thrice in one go, should be considered as said only once.
“Though the AIMBLP has not received any such letter as yet, but we do not agree with the suggestion.We have nothing to do with what happens in other Islamic countries. What is happening in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Sudan and other countries. We do not look into it. What we follow is what Quran Sharif, Hadith and Sunnat has said,” he added.
