AIMPLB convention to formulate strategy on UCC, triple talaq

Kolkata: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board, which will start its three-day convention from tomorrow, said that the issues of uniform civil code and triple talaq were raised by the BJP and RSS to divert attention from their ‘failures’.

AIMPLB general secretary Maluana Wali Rehman told reporters that the Modi government had failed to deliver on their promise to uplift the Muslim community.

He said that the convention would devise a strategy to counter the “ill motives” behind the move.

“The BJP-RSS is trying to infringe on the personal and fundamental rights of the Muslims,” Rehman said.

The convention will end with a mass rally at Park Circus maidan on November 20.

The AIMPLB, which is the highest decision-making body on Muslim personal laws, usually sticks to only the personal laws broadly covering marriage, divorce (talaq), inheritance, succession and adoption-related issues.
