Council of Islamic Ideology chairman Dr Qibla Ayaz said on Wednesday that the authority supported making the practice of triple talaq a punishable. The chairman was addressing media after a CII session, where he said that triple talaq was a major issue and it should dealt with in a timely manner. He said that the punishment regarding this will be discussed with religious scholars and also on making a consolidated paper on divorce.

Dr Ayaz said a session will be summoned on the issue of triple talaq soon.

The CCI chair also announced that the body discouraged marriages of minors. On November 3, Dr Ayaz was appointed as the chairman of the CII for a period of three years. He replaced Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani, a politician from the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl, who held the post for six years. The CII was set up in 1962, during the years of General Ayub Khan’s military-led government. Its mandate is to assist the government in Islamising laws.
