Why the Triple Talaq Verdict Was a Flawed One
Rajeev Dhavan

At times, Indian courts have made what Gandhiji called "egregious blunders" in discharging this task of interpretation (such as on Hindu gains of learning and Muslim Waqfs for family). However, Anglo-Indian courts have been rightly entrusted with this task which includes examining the view of Muslim jurists. In that sense, Justice Kurian approached the issue in the right spirit of interpretation. If Justice Nariman’s view is taken, huge consequences beyond the issues in this case would result....

Of Politics, Talaq and Judgments
A G Noorani

Then attorney-general Mukul Rohatgi “was emphatic” that not only triple Talaq but two others — Talaq-I-Ahsan And Talaq-I-Hasan — were unconstitutional. One judge pointed out that, in that event, Muslim men would have no remedy for divorce. Rohatgi replied in the affirmative, but assuring that Parliament would enact legislation “within no time”. No government can give such an assurance on legislation and despatch. Was Rohatgi speaking on instructions or was he on a frolic of his own? In either case, the motive is revealed — not reform but repeal of Sharia by legislation.....

A New Tune on Women’s Rights in the Arab World
Shereen El Feki

Over the past three months, significant legal reforms on women’s rights have advanced in a handful of countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Last week, Lebanon’s Parliament finally repealed its rape law, which allowed assailants to escape punishment if they wed their victims. Two weeks earlier, Jordan, too, closed its “marry your rapist” loophole, and has also amended an article in its penal code that granted lesser penalties for “fits of fury,” a.k.a. honour killings —.....

God is kind; the holy book (Quran) treats man and woman equally. It also commands man to be fair to woman. But man is not only argumentative but prejudiced against woman. Minorities are often conservative and confrontational. They tend to protect their identity and hence see reforms as attempts to curb their religious freedom.  ...

Triple Talaq and Rising Fundamentalism
Kuldip Nayar

The Muslim community is being misled by the fundamentalists. Unfortunately, politics has also come in. The ruling Bhartiya Janata Party has its eyes on the next general election in 2019. Be it but the atmosphere of pluralism should not be polluted. The Supreme Court or for that matter any court would have no ground to interfere if the preamble of the Indian Constitution is followed, that is secular and democratic polity.....

Instant Triple Talaq Judgment and After
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

The statement of the Jamiat Ulema e Hind suggesting that they would not follow Supreme Court verdict only goes on to say how much faith they have in the Indian judiciary. For them, as for a majority of religious fundamentalists, the matter is very simple: if the courts rule in their favour then they would hail the verdict, but if the law goes against then, the judiciary becomes a pawn in the hands of ‘vested interests’. People like Madani bring shame to the Muslim community and people like him are responsible for making the community a sitting target for the Hindu Right wing forces who quickly announce to the world that Muslims do not believe in the Indian nation, far less the judiciary....

Middle East On A Roll to Repeal 'Marry the Rapist' Laws
Rothna Begum

In recent weeks, the Tunisian, Jordanian, and Lebanese parliaments have repealed provisions in their penal codes that allowed rapists to escape punishment by marrying their victims. Provisions like these, largely colonial-era relics, remain on the books in many other countries in the region and beyond. Some permit exoneration for a range of offences, including kidnapping, rape, and sex with a child (statutory rape) if the perpetrator marries the victim.....
