Muslim men who misuse triple talaq and use it arbitrarily without valid reason will be subjected to social boycott, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board warned on Sunday. But it stopped short of abolishing the utterance of "talaq" thrice in one sitting.

"We have also formulated a code of conduct for divorce, in case it becomes inevitable".

Personal laws for Muslims are partially based on the Sharia law.

The Prime Minister's comments came on a day when the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) asserted Muslims have a "constitutional" right to follow their personal law of which "triple talaq" was a part.

A five-judge constitution bench of the apex court will start hearing from May 11 the petitions against Triple Talaq.

The Union government had on October 7 previous year opposed in the Supreme Court the practice of tri- ple talaq, "nikah halala" and polyg- amy among Muslims and favoured a relook on grounds like gender equality and secularism.

"We welcome Prime Minister Modi's initiative on the issue of triple talaq but he should also make efforts towards improving "girls' education".

Subjecting these people to social boycott would serve as a deterrence, the Board said.

In Islamic law, a man can simply say talaq (divorce) to his wife to annul the marriage.

"AIMPLB is responsible for all problems faced by Muslims".

"Just as it is unfair to impose Islam on the unwilling, in the same way it is unfair to force Muslims to follow laws from other religions", he said.

He said the organisation would provide all possible help to Muslim woman divorcees as provided under Shariah and urged parents to give women a share in their properties instead of dowry at the time of marriage.

Muslims in India, majority of them followers of Hanafi school of thought, are adamant on the invalid concurrent talaq and are fighting a case with women activists in the Supreme Court.

"We do not want that there is conflict within the Muslim community over this issue".
