The Vice President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has said that the board will end the practice of triple talaq itself in one-and-a-half years, so the government should not interfere in the matter.
Kalbe Sadiq also advised the Muslims against eating beef.
The Shia scholar said the triple talaq system was unfair to women, but it was a personal affair for the community, and they would solve it themselves within one to one-and-a-half years. He said the government should not interfere in it.
On the issue of beef consumption, he said in the religious books, eating beef is not advised and Muslims should not have it.
Sadiq said if the government enacts laws banning cow slaughter and beef eating in the country, the Muslims would welcome it. He condemned the unlawful activities of cow vigilantes and demanded that it be stopped.
