The Milli Gazette Online

Chennani: Shariah Protection Council, a Chennai-based organisation on Shariah, conducted a statewide sample survey on the AIMPLB’s model Nikahnama in May. A total of 2,672 persons were interviewed. Muslims as well as people of other religions, people of different age groups, and with differing educational levels were covered in the survey. People both from urban and rural areas, and with differing marital status were also interviewed. One thousand five hundred and seventy Muslim men 1,102 Muslim women and 116 non-Muslims were covered in the survey.

Sixty-two percent of the respondents said that the Board is not competent to issue a fatwa banning triple talaq, only 17 percent said that the Board has the authority to ban triple talaq and 21 per cent said that they were not aware about it.
