Lucknow, Oct 12: All India Muslim Personal Law Board on Saturday decided to challenge the constitutionality inter alia of the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act 2019 (Triple Talaq) on the ground that it suffers from manifest lacunae.
It said that the Act of 2019, far from protection of the rights of Muslim women and children, will completely destroy the institution of marriage and render destitute women of the community. Expressing confidence that the Supreme Court will give its verdict in favour of the Muslim side in the vexed Ayodhya case, AIMPLB also warned the government against any intervention in the Uniform Civil Code.
The Board ruled out any move by Muslims to hand over the Ayodhya land to the Hindu side as it is against Shariat and also expressed satisfaction at the legal team which had contested the title suit in the apex court .
The working committee of the Board met at Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulema here under the chairmanship of Chairman Maulana Syed Mohammad Hasan Nadvi.(UNI)
