AIMPLB is the ‘worst enemy’ of Muslim community, says Javed Akhtar
New Delhi: Flying off the handle with All India Muslim Personal Law Board’s latest statement justifying triple talaq, Veteran Bollywood lyricist and poet Javed Akhtar on Saturday said the organisation was the biggest foe of its own community.
“I condemn Muslim personal law board in the strongest words for justifying instant divorce. They are the worst enemies of their own community,” tweet the poet.

Akhtar’s statement was a reaction to AIMPLB’s words justifying the ‘triple talaq’ practice. “Men will take the extreme step of killing their wives if the practice is prohibited or amended. The women can be possibly burnt or treated heinously in case the law is not continued as it is”, said AIMPBL in an affidavit submitted to the Supreme Court on Friday last.
