All India Milli Council (AIMC), an organisation of Muslims, said it was against any move to make changes in their community personal law, particularly on the contentious triple talaq issue. “We endorse the All India Muslim Personal Law Board view on triple talaq which is averse to any change in its personal law,” AIMC general secretary Manzoor Alam told reporters after the conclusion of two-day 18th annual session of its general body in Bhopal on Saturday.

Watch what else is making news:

Asked that the Muslim women have themselves moved the Supreme Court against triple talaq, he alleged politicians were trying to create divide in their community for political gains.

“RSS and BJP are against the Indian Constitution which stands for secularism, equality and justice among other things,” Alam alleged. AIMC has been formed to protect the Muslims community as per the rights guaranteed under the Indian Constitution to all citizens, irrespective to their caste, creed, religion, languages, he said.

Alam claimed that media played a good role during the demolition of Babri Mosque. At that time it had churned out stories and analysis, which has been missing since last two and a half year, he said.

“Now the media is more loyal than the king,” Alam remarked in an apparent reference to the debate going on in the media over triple talaq.

    People don't have sense...... They don't know anything about others religion but they start giving their opinion as if someone asked them to say. Before saying something first go and read about the shariah law. For those who are giving example of Iraq Iran uae Malaysia etc....... that are islamic countries but india is not. So if you want change in shariah law first we have to make india an islamic country. So I request all indians to accept Islam and then we all will do some changes in shariah law like others did. So guys start reading quran and hadith to understand shariah.

      if a HINDU organization had dared to speak in such a brazen way in STAN IRAQ SYRIA PALESTINE BANGLADESH SAUDI - they would have been arrested tortured and even killed for daring to be a minority who raises its voice in an ISLAMIC state.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;but in India an a55 like Owaisi who threatened to murder Hindus becomes an MLA and MUSLIM organizations dare to run their law parallel to laws of India!!

        Very good. let them live with sharia. Soon we will deport them to stan or Bangladesh. Because Saudi does not consider Indian muslims as true muslims.

                It is an outfit of Muslim male chauvinists. They too know that they aren't representatives of Muslim women.They want their women 'to be their slaves to full fill their lust. They may not have a single female member in their organization. They should accept all steps which are meant for the welfare of their women. Blaming RSS and BJP has become fashion and such splinter groups believe that they would become heroes if they accuse RSS and BJP. Let us save Muslim women from clutches of child marriage, polygamy, illiteracy, triple talaq and religious fanatics

                  The idea of equating a woman with a piece of flesh might be acceptable to desert roaming Bedouins but not to the Indian Republic. Those who want to live in India and enjoy the benefits that this free nation has to offer must also comply with the laws of the land.

                    Criminal law is the same for all Indians. Why not civil law? Islamic nations have banned the regressive talaq practices. Countries like Malaysia; Brunei; Iran; Iraq; Kuwait; Qtar and USE have banned talaq and conditions imposed for second marriage (based on individual declared wealth). 7 million Indian muslims are irking their livings overseas mostly in the middle east. What is the solution when the victims approach the Courts in India?

                      Triple talaq must be abolished to give justice to Indian muslim women.

                        No room for personal laws in a true democracy. Also uniform civil code is a must.

                          WONDERFUL ! Apply Shariat law also! If she is given talaq she has to marry another before taking talaq and going back to her husband if she wants.Without talaq if she does , she will be stoned to death! Talaq doesnot cost anything I appreciate the great permissiveness. without any hle! No wonder they donot want to change the law with the convenience of loose moraled politicians!

                            All muslim organisations play double standards while conflicts appear between indian law and muslim personal law . When prosecution is hard they follow IPC and when soft -MPL. Why not they demand complete shariyati law for muslims ? Let all muslims are brought under sharyati law completely . Their hands will be chopped for theft , made blind for wrong doing, death by stone throw for rape , beheading for terrorism , no interest for bank deposit ... have the courage ? You people broke the nation for home land but stays back, now same people sta back constantly showing resistance for UCL. Then why you don't demand law of sharyat for you all ?

                              By the name of personal law muslims are showing double standards . When the prosecution is harsh they prefer national law and when soft , they bats for personal law . Why not all muslims ask for sariaty law 100%? Let all muslims are brought under sharyati law as depicted in qur'an only . Will these muslim organisations demand that ? Then, hands will be chopped for theft, stone will be thrown till death for rape , beheaded for terrorism, no interest in bank deposit ...etc . Infact prosecution will be easy too . And no muslims can say they are in danger .

                                The present law is against Muslim women who should support govt to implement it at the earliest.

                                  The media is not churning out reports in your favour simply because the regressive people like you and your outfits stands exposed, that's why they are bed now. You were happy when the media were putting out reports which suited your political interests. You can fool some of the people some of the times; but you simply cant fool all the people all the times. India has changed and is changing more now. The sooner you realize and accept, the better for you and all.

                                    Why Muslim women marching towards supreme court for justice? All they need is justice, which can't do by shariat courts. Giving talaq through post, msg, other media,.. are these things taken to be granted? stand in the shoes of women who got divorced through triple talaq, then u all women can understand the pain and difficult. Today might be, u women are not under this pbm, tomorrow ur children or ur relatives could face the same problem... think and stand for ban.
