Besides Gender Justice, Triple Talaq Case Was Also About Separating Religion and State in Family Law
Indira Jaising

The chief justice of India, who authored the minority judgment, failed to separate state from religion when he elevated personal laws to the status of a fundamental right. What is more, he failed to understand that personal laws have no existence independent of the subject matter they govern. In this case, since they govern matters of family law, they are family law, nothing more, nothing less. This failure leads him to conclude that personal laws are part of the right to freedom of religion, a dangerous proposition by any reckoning....

Oppressive Personal Laws Aren’t the Only Thing Standing Between Muslim Women and Happy Lives
Farah Naqvi

The celebrations in the air seem to disingenuously suggest that oppressive personal laws are the only thing standing between Muslim women and happy lives. Rubbish. Sixty-one years of a reformed and codified Hindu personal law has not exactly made Hindu women the poster girls of empowerment. Though the intent is noble, the nation cannot swoop in to save the Muslim woman, while Muslim communities are simultaneously being brought to their knees....

In India, Muslim men have been able to end their marriages by saying the word “Talaq” — Arabic for “divorce” — three times. They could do this in person, by letter or even over the phone. By contrast, a Muslim woman in India seeking a divorce must generally gain the permission of her husband, a cleric or other Islamic authorities. The method of divorce was available only to men, who in many cases ousted their wives from their homes without alimony or other financial support....

Three Judgments, Three Takeaways
Faizan Mustafa

The constitution Bench of five judges, belonging to five different religious communities, took more than three months to author its 395-page judgment on triple divorce. The historic verdict marks a red-letter day for gender justice in India. However, even judges who held triple divorce unconstitutional based their decision on arbitrariness rather than on the discriminatory nature of triple divorce. Thus, gender justice was not the basis of the majority judgment.....

The job of a Qazi has been an exclusive male preserve till recently in India, as it is in most parts of the world.

The Woman Question in the Subcontinent
Nyla Ali Khan

Nationalist discourse creates the dichotomy of the inner/ outer in order to make the sanctity of the inviolable inner domain look traditional. Nationalist writers assert that as long as the inner or spiritual distinctiveness of the culture is retained, a postcolonial nation can make the required adjustments to cope with a modern material world without losing its essential identity. The result, however, is not the orderly process of modernisation but rather the continued immiseration of women.....

The credit goes to this great Muslim woman of Hyderabad. It is high time we appreciate her effort in designing our flag....
