The All India Muslim Women's Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) is an organisation constituted in 2005 to adopt strategies for the protection and continued applicability of Muslim Personal Law in India, with a particular focus on women's issues, including marriage, divorce, and other legal rights.

Description

The AIMWPLB consists of a 30-person executive board and is lead by president Shaista Ambar. The AIMWPLB received limited coverage by the Indian media in March 2008 when it released a 12-page "Sharai Nikahnama" which sought to offer India's Muslim women a religiously-sanctioned alternative to conventional Islamic marriage contracts. The Nikhahnama is, according to the AIMWPLB applicable to Sunnis and Shi'a and is available in both Hindi and Urdu.
