Sadiq agreed that triple talaq has caused great suffering for many Muslim women, but the practice has been allowed till not since it was considered a personal affair for the community.
A Muslim woman allegedly committed suicide on Monday, after her husband divorced her through "triple talaq" in Basti district of Uttar Pradesh.
'We have received 3.50 crore forms in favor of Shariyat and triple talaq from Muslim women in the country and the number of women against these are very less, ' chief organizer of the AIMPLB's women wing Asma Zohra said while addressing a gathering of around 20,000 women at a workshop in Eidgah on April 9.
The incident happened just a day after the Uttar Pradesh government sought views of Muslim women on the issue of triple talaq, based on which it will present its side in the Supreme Court.
On March 27, the Board told the Supreme Court that talaq and polygamy are integral part of the religion of Sunni Muslims and the court could not alter the sanctity of personal laws.

A two-day meeting of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) scheduled here from April 15 will also be discussing the issue of triple talaq.
Describing triple talaq, "nikah halala" and polygamy as repugnant to the guarantee of secularism - an essential feature of the Indian Constitution - the Centre said that lopsided development and pockets of social backwardness is not in the larger interest of the integrity and development of the nation.
