Why are patriarchs blocking Triple Talaq Bill?

Triple Talaq Bill Muslim Board Holds Emergency Meeting Says'No Stakeholder Consulted Before Drafting The Bill Will Urge PM To Withdraw It

The triple talaq Bill is against the provisions of the Constitution and it violates the rights of women, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said today, demanding its withdrawal.Describing it as a “conspiracy”, the AIMPLB also accused the government of snatching the right of divorce from men.

Thanks to Indian Muslim women's campaign against triple talaq and their approach to the Supreme Court, the latter dismissed it as illegal and unconstitutional. "There is no provision of triple talaq in the Shariat and this legislation is about giving the basic human rights to the Muslim women", he said.

This Bill is for protection of the rights of the women from the Muslim community, Pandey said. (Uttarakhand resident Bano is the original petitioner in the case).

The criminalisation of behaviour or practices stemming from or associated with religious conventions is not without precedent. Once the aggrieved individual files a complaint before a magistrate, it is up to the court to direct the police as to whether they should investigate the matter. It can't be a cognizable offence if wife has no desire to see errant husband punished. "If they wanted to be represented, they should have done so before it", ANI quoted as she saying.

Winter weather advisory in effect for the Lehigh Valley into Christmas morning
To qualify as an official white Christmas, at least 1 inch of snow will need to be on the ground Monday. Temperatures on Christmas day will be near 30, but fall to the teens by mid-week.

He said that since the Supreme Court struck down the practice of instant triple talaq, almost 66 cases of husbands divorcing their spouses through this method were reported.

Nomani said that while drafting the Bill, the parliamentary procedure of lawmaking too had been ignored, because neither the stakeholders nor the affected parties nor women organisations had been consulted. "The President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) will convey this stand to Prime Minister Modi and request him to withhold and withdraw the bill", board's spokesperson Sajjad Nomani said while talking to media after the All India Muslim Personal Law (AIMPLB) meeting held at Nadwatul Ulema in Lucknow. Cleared by the Indian cabinet last week, the Bill is expected to be introduced by the government in parliament next week.

Then again, when it comes to the demonisation of Muslim men, as with the release of Padmavati, all bets are off.

Senior woman member of the board Asma Zehra said: "The Bill is against the interests of Muslim women". Apart from this, it is also an attempt to interfere with the Muslim personal law.
