LUCKNOW: All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) today welcomed the ALMPLB's decision to set up a women-wing for deliberating on the raging issues like triple talaq and hoped that these problems will be looked into with an open mind.

"I welcome the move of the AIMPLB to set up a women-wing to look into the problems related to triple talaq, education and other such matters and hope that they will look into them with an open mind without any prejudice," chairperson of the AIMWPLB Shaista Amber told PTI.

"Only a woman can understand the problems related to their gender. I hope that they will consider the real plight of Muslim women in the face of triple talaq, inheritance, Khula and Halala ..if this does not happen there will be no relevance of this wing," she said.

Regretting that there is a dearth of women 'qazis, muftis and alims' in Darul-Qaza (shariat courts) because of which women are deprived of justice in cases of talaq, Amber demanded that women qazis, muftis and alims should be present in these courts to ensure justice to women.

Amber said that she had been working on triple talaq and other related issues and had sought time to meet the office bearers of the AIMPLB but was denied audience, however, the latest move indicated that the board has started to realise the poor condition of women.

In a first, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (ALMPLB) yesterday decided to form a women's wing to look into burning issues such as talaq, even as it passed a resolution in favour of triple talaq.

The women's wing would also deal with other issues like family disputes and education.
