NEW DELHI: Condemning the affidavit filed by All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on the controversial triple talaq stating that it prevents men from killing wives, Farha Faiz, one of the petitioners in the matter on Wednesday said, the justification made by the former in the affidavit is ‘un-Islamic’ and cannot be followed.

 “It is actually a male dominating board. They have not yet revealed their real faces in front of everyone. They also said that Allah (god) made men superior then women. If men are superior and they have more patience, then what is the need for triple talaq. They should show patience, should judge in a better way, if their judgments are so good. They themselves are going against their verdict. I do not agree with it. I completely dismiss it. All the things that they have mentioned in their affidavit are un-Islamic. These things cannot be followed,” Faiz told ANI.

On Monday, the Supreme Court granted four weeks' time to the Centre to respond on a batch of petitions on triple talaq.

In the affidavit filed by the AIMPLB it was mentioned that if the practice is discontinued, a man could murder or burn his wife alive to get rid of her.

The board also said that divorce proceedings instead of triple talaq could damage a woman's chances of re-marriage if the husband indicts her of loose character in the court.

The AIMPLB also asked the Supreme Court to keep its hands off the issue, saying that principles of marriage, talaq and polygamy are interwoven with religious and cultural rights of Muslims, which cannot be touched upon by any Court on the ground of violation of fundamental rights.

The AIMPLB further said that polygamy as a social practice is not for gratifying men's lust, but it is a social need.
