Zafaryab Jilani, Secretary of All India Muslim Personal Law Board and convener of Babri Masjid Action Committee said on Monday the misuse of 'triple talaq' created legal issues leading to the matter landing in the Supreme Court for adjudication.

He said the board has been making efforts since 1985 toensure that Muslim men understand the concept and follow the Shariyat rules for 'triple talaq' for divorce.

Misusing 'triple talaq' is a sin, he said.

"We cannot accept any change in Shariyat as it is basedon the principles of Allah. It has been prevalent for more than 1450 years and it will continue to exist," said Jilani.
