Triple Talaq and the Constitution
Gautam Bhatia

In response to the AIMPLB’s claim that the state has no right to interfere in the personal, religious domain, they respond that the religious domain, properly understood, does not, and has never, allowed for triple Talaq. They draw a distinction between instantaneous Talaq, or Talaq-I-Bidat (where divorce is complete when “Talaq” is uttered three times in succession) with Talaq Ahsan, which requires a 90-day period of abstinence after the pronouncement, and Talaq Hasan, which requires a one-month-long abstinence gap between utterances. The latter two are part of Islamic personal law, but the first one is not.....

Rape and Ordinary Men in Pakistan
Rafia Zakaria

India may have imposed the worst punishment possible on five of the rapists, but Pakistan will continue to ensure that its rapists go free. All the ordinary men, the ones who believe that women are asking for it simply by existing in the ambit of their predatory and sinister intentions, need not worry; in Pakistan no one will stop them, no one will get in their way....

In the Qur’anic perspective there can never be a restriction of this knowledge to one sex. It is the duty of every Muslim man and every Muslim woman to pursue knowledge throughout life, even if it should lead the seeker to “China,” we are told. The Prophet even commanded that the slave girls be educated, and he asked Shifa’ bint ‘Abdillah to educate his own wife – Hafsah bint ‘Umar....

If You Want To Know About Muslim Women's Rights, Ask Muslim Women
Susan Carland

This was not the first time a stranger had felt entitled to raise the potential religious interference of my genitals with me. It’s uncanny how often people try to demonstrate their concern about the alleged oppression of Muslim women by humiliating them. Even finding out the details of my research findings doesn’t seem to deter them from baldly sharing opinions.....

 

Talaq Not Easy As Muslim Men in Kerala Find Ways to Beat Law

 “I hereby declare that I have pronounced, ‘Talaq... Talaq... Talaq’ to my wife, Shameem Begum (27),” signed off 33-year old Javed S in an agreement dated April 4, 2017. It was a day of emancipation for Shameem, a seamstress. (Both names changed.) “For four years, I have been trying and I had to literally fall at his feet to get the Talaq,” said Shameem. Javed agreed to it after she had signed another agreement foregoing all her rights to maintenance and giving up the Rs 1.5 Lakh she paid as the ‘Maher’ or dowry to him. “I just wanted to get out of the pit....

Of Halala Marriages and the Sexual Exploitation of Muslim Women
Purniya Awan

A very small portion of Muslims around the world believe in the concept of Halala marriage. However, by monopolising this practice in a simplistic manner, these services are taking away and misrepresenting the concept of Halala marriages which are stated in the Holy Quran. By doing so, what these services are doing is normalising adultery, infidelity and prostitution in the name of Halala....

Why are Islamists in Pakistan Afraid of Its Women?
Anita M Weiss

Al-Huda’s emphasis on observing Purdah reinforces the notion that women’s uncontrolled sexuality will lead men astray and disrupt the social order. These teachings, therefore, not only put the responsibility of any sexual crime against women on men – as we see in the rest of the world – but they also become an excuse for the control of women’s mobility and sexuality.

Triple Talaq A Monumental Obstruction to Gender Equality
Ujjal Dosanjh

It was what has been happening from time immemorial: Men, particularly old men, sitting in judgement on what rights women should or mostly rather shouldn’t have; it had been happening for eons until women rose up in different parts of the world–the likes of Jhansi, Sarojini Naidu and Aruna Asif Ali in India and the suffragettes in the west, just to name some of the countless milestones; then the bra burning and the unshackling of women the world over gathered unstoppable momentum....

Triple Talaq — Myths and Misperceptions
Faizan Mustafa

Similarly, a wrong impression has been created that most Muslim women are getting triple divorces through phone, email and via SMS. Even according to Bhartiya Muslim Mahila Andolan's (BMAA) case study on triple divorce only one divorce out of 117 was given in this manner. As per BMMA's own findings, only 0.2 per cent got divorces on phone, just 0.6 per cent received divorce through email. Similarly, in another survey by BMMA, out of 521divorces, only one woman got triple divorce via SMS that is, only 0.19 per cent. Thus the problem is not as serious as is made out by the Narendra Modi and Yogi Adityanath governments....

Egypt's Islamist Parties Are All About Marriage, Not Politics for Women
Walid Salah

“Men are also trained to be good husbands and fathers. Life is based on partnerships, but perhaps critics have stereotypes about us or have another perspective that does not consider women present unless they are emancipated from things we do not see as restraining. Some traits are God-given and are in the interest of men and women alike .....

 

While there has been a state of near hysteria over the issue of triple Talaq in the media, no one is clear on the real importance of the case. While the media is flooded with stories of husbands giving unilateral Talaq to their wives on the phone and by SMS, no one talks about the fact that women of all religious communities face domestic violence and that women are abandoned without notice. The fact is that inequality in what has come to be known as personal laws exists across all religious communities. ....
