Muslim Women Are Not Without Remedy If They Want To End Their Marital Ties
Faizan Mustafa

First, Muslim women can seek divorce through a court under the law of Fasakh (annulment of marriage) on certain grounds — i.e. the whereabouts of her husband are not known for four years; non-payment of maintenance for two years; imprisonment of her husband for seven years; non-performance of marital obligations; impotency; insanity or suffering from diseases such as leprosy or venereal diseases; cruelty which includes the husband taking on a second wife....

Unimportance of Triple Talaq
Abusaleh Shariff

In conclusion, this survey shows that the incidence of “triple Talaq in one go” is rare and insignificant. Projecting the minuscule victims of triple Talaq as the major issue to be confronted to empower the Muslim community is questionable. Instead, the social policy maker should be concerned about 43 million widowed women belonging to all sections of society and provide incentives for remarriage and/or provide programmatic financial support to them.....

 

Triple Talaq Debate Shows How Muslim Women Are Challenging Patriarchy

Muslim Personal Law Board’s Pathetic Attempt to Cover up Its Defeat in the Supreme Court
A. Rahman, New Age Islam

Almost any reasonably educated adult Muslim can perform a ‘Nikah’ between a Muslim bride and groom and it will be a valid and legally binding marriage for all practical purposes. The board whose members have been enjoying largesse received from Muslims all over the country and the political clout they have been wielding as a representative body of twenty crore Muslims of India for the past 44 years have not taken pains to educate the gullible Muslim masses on the point even of Muslim marriage, what to speak of divorce, and how both should be gone through in accordance with Sharia law…..

Triple Talaq: It Is an Issue of Gender Equality, Not Religion
Rajdeep Sardesai

The BJP may well claim that it is standing by Muslim progressives but their stand is misleading. After all, isn’t this the same party which has been insisting that faith be placed above the law in the contentious Ram Janmabhoomi case? Truth is, for the brotherhood in saffron, triple Talaq is another convenient stick to beat the Muslim community with and push the stereotype of a religion that is steeped in archaic practices...

After Independence, Pakistan Discarded British Legacy of Muslim Personal Law, But Indian Muslims Cling To It
A. G. Noorani

The Quran enjoins a clear procedure. The first step is appointment of arbiters “if you fear a breach” between the couple (4:35). Failing their efforts, either side can demand divorce; Khula by the wife and Talaq by the husband, for which a period of three months (Iddah) is obligatory. It is revocable before that. In 1943, Maulana Abul Ala Maududi said, “Due to want of knowledge, Muslims have been generally given to understand that a Talaq can be pronounced only through the triple-divorce formula, although it is an innovation and a sin...

Towards Liberation from the Body of Clerics with a Medieval Mindset - Part 1
Govind Bhattacharjee

Nobody can doubt that the belief in the oneness of God is a fundamental tenet of Islam, but can triple Talaq be considered equally fundamental? Or is there a hierarchy of fundamental elements in Islam? Where would triple Talaq fit then, since it is not mentioned in the Quran, and especially when divorce itself has been described as ‘sinful’ and Abghaz-ul-Mubahat Indallah ~ most detestable in the sight of God…

 

Triple Talaq: Reforming Dated Laws Is a Must
Aishwarya P. Sharma

It was a symbol of the failure to Indianise Muslims, who stayed back after partition, something that Balraj Madhok, president of BJS highlighted in his letter dated 1 August 1981 to Indira Gandhi, who was then the Prime Minister. Self-styled Maulanas have always wanted to keep the home and the hearth firmly within their control. Their desperation was all the more evident as a consequence of their declining political fortunes and control among the masses they enjoyed in the 1950s and until the late 1980s….

 

What’s TTT? Triple Talaq Tamasha
Saba Naqvi

Many Indian Maulvis do the opposite. Indeed, as the TTT (Triple Talaq Tamasha) proceeds, the producers of TV news shows are certainly on to a good thing with various worthies of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB). Therefore, on any dull news day -- that is when we can’t abuse Kashmiris on prime time TV or harangue Pakistanis or have a super duper exclusive expose on the opposition chaps all now running for cover -- we can dust off the mullahs and produce them on TV. The producers are guaranteed of a sterling performance by one mullah or the other defending the indefensible….

Further on, it directs them to bring in elders to arbitrate affairs if the husband and the wife fail to resolve it among themselves. It then allows the husband to pronounce ‘Talaq’ twice with an intervening period of three Tuhr (menstrual cycle). These are revocable. This was advised in order to provide the contending couples time to cool off and try for rapprochement. The third Talaq was allowed after yet another period of Tuhr which was irrevocable....

Supreme Court as Clergy
Faizan Mustafa

The whole concept of providing constitutional protection only to those elements of religion which the court considers ‘essential’ is problematic. Such an approach assumes that one element or practice is independent of the others and that some practices are central while others are just incidental. This is not the correct understanding of religion as all elements and practices together constitute a religion.....

Why India Allows Instant Divorce: For Muslim Indian Men, Breaking Up Is Easy To Do
The Economist

Though triple Talaq is invoked in vanishingly few real-life cases, it is clear that the practice is unjust. Already more than 20 Muslim-majority countries, including neighbouring Pakistan and Bangladesh, have either banned it or devised Sharia-compliant marriage contracts to work around it. India, with the world’s third-largest Muslim population, has failed to catch up....

Triple Talaq: Model Nikahnamas Exist, but Most Brides Have No Say in Their Marriage Contracts
Aarefa Johari

The Islamic Nikah is the only religious marriage in India that sees marriage as a contract between husband and wife rather than a holy sacrament. And in an ideal, gender-sensitive Nikah, both the bride and the groom would have the right to mutually negotiate the terms of their contractual union. A Muslim woman could, in this ideal case, ensure that her Nikahnama mentions a high Mehr, the amount that a groom pays the bride for her financial security in case of a divorce....

Triple Talaq, an Extra-Quranic Practice, Has No Place in the Quran
Nizam Pasha

The Sura' in the Quran dedicated to the subject of divorce which is titled "Talaq" prescribes the following procedure for divorce: a period of Iddat of three months (or in case of pregnancy, the duration of pregnancy) has to be provided to the wife after divorce is pronounced during which it is prohibited to turn her out of the house. In fact, it is recommended that the woman should also not leave of her own accord as this reduces the possibility of reconciliation. Further, divorce can be pronounced only during prescribed periods, which must not be during the wife's menstrual cycle....
