Lucknow: The 1980s issue of the Shah Bano, is seemed again to appear before India, when current issue of Triple Talaq in the Muslim Law is in challenge, it is because the All India Muslim Personal Law Board which has decided to oppose any move which will be adopted for scraping the law as to Triple Talaq in Muslims, has also decided to contest the Shayara Bano’s case in which she has challenged the issue of Triple Talaq as it is alleged by her unconstitutional in the Supreme Court of India.
It was seen in the case of Shah Bano, which was witnessed in the year 1985 by many, as a Sixty- five- years old, Muslim mother of five from Indore, was divorced by her husband, and she had won the right to alimony in the Supreme Court. However, later, the Government of that time which was led by Rajiv Gandhi from Congress party, found under pressure of the Islamic orthodoxy and as such the legislation namely, the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Divorce) Act, 1986 was passed that time, through which the decision of the honourable Apex Court was diluted and right to alimony for the Muslim divorced woman was also denied.
Now, as per the decision of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, which was made a day before yesterday, it was seen that it is now set to prevent any attempt at the intervention by the Centre or any authority, as said in Muslim law.
It was seen, in the month of March the honourable Supreme Court of India while consider the plea of the Shayara Bano who is from Uttarakhand, had admitted the petition and also sought to initiate its Suo Motu proceedings in the matter of Triple Talaq, and all for the protection of the Muslim Women’s rights. But, now the concerned Muslim Personal Law Board is set to become the party in the case to respond over her claim.
Moreover, as per the statements from the lawyer- Zafaryab Jilani, the honourable Apex Court has accepted the said Muslim Board as a “party in the case” and also he said it will seek a “similar intervention in the Shayara Bano case”. Even as per the leader from Hyderabad- Asaduddin Owaisi, the Board need to hire best lawyers for putting up a strong case before the Top Court.
