Introduction & History of All India Shia Personal Law Board

All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) is an organisation formed in January 2005 to represent the rights of Shia in India. It was felt that the current board, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) had been neglecting the views of Shia Muslims in India. Maulana Kalbe Sadiq, vice chairman of the Shia board is also senior vice president of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB).

  • Mission: Represent the rights of Shia Muslim in India

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) is a non-government organisation constituted in 1973 to adopt suitable strategies for the protection and continued applicability of Muslim Personal Law in India, most importantly, the Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act of 1937,providing for the application of the Islamic Law Code of Shariat to Muslims in India in personal affairs. The Act applies to all matters of personal law except such successions. Even this section had the right under laws such as the Cutchi Memons Act, 1920 and the Mahomedan Inheritance Act (II of 1897) to opt for "Mahomedan Law". Faizur Rahman claims that a majority of Muslim followed Muslim law, not the Hindu civil code.

In 2016, All India Shia Personal Law Board came out with a model ‘nikahnama’ that denounced triple talaq in one sitting among the Muslims. Until both husband and wife give their consent for divorce, it cannot take place. A similar draft was presented at AISPLB convention in Mumbai in 2007.
