2890838.largeThe All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Thursday announced that there is no scope of change in the triple talaq system and rejected the suggestion made by some community outfits for making a three-month period compulsory before settlement of divorce.

All India Sunni Ulema Council had addressed a letter to the Board along with Deobandi and Barelvi sects stating if the Islamic law pertaining to talaq  wherein,if the word is said by a person thrice in one go, should be considered as said only once.

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 told PTI.

“About 90% people who opt for the triple talaq in a single sitting regret it later,” said Salees, adding that Muslim bodies like the AIMPLB must initiate a discussion on ways out of this crisis.
