Mumbai: Days after Nikhath Fathema resigned as member of the All India
Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), sources said more women members
are considering to resign from the high-powered body of Indian Muslims
due to differences on triple talaq.
Triple talaq is a contentious issue in the Muslim world since the time
of second Caliph Omar (RA). According to the Saheeh Hadeeth, there was
total unanimity among Muslim scholars and jurists over the issue
during the lifetime of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him), entire
tenure of first Caliph Abu Bakra (RA) and the first two years of
Caliph Omar (RA).
