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. ....

Radicalised Women: The ISIS Offers Women Dignity, Purpose, Protection
Huma Yusuf

Research on the so-called ‘brides of IS’ has shown that women are radicalised by the same issues as men: a perception that the Ummah is under attack, frustration over the international community’s indifference to Muslim suffering, a sense of religious duty, the desire to meaningfully contribute to a utopian society, a craving for comradeship.....

While most societies across the globe are becoming more liberal when it comes to gender, not only are Arab countries the most conservative, there is also little evidence of change. Our research, which looks at how political and social attitudes changed after the Arab uprisings in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia, suggests that although women tend to be more progressive, both women and men share conservative attitudes...

The ambiguity in the interpretation of civil and criminal laws by clerics is also pretty evident from some of the infamous incidents in the country such as the ‘Imrana rape case’. In the said case, a woman from Uttar Pradesh who was raped by her father-in-law was asked by the local minority community Panchayat to treat her husband as her son. The local Panchayat also termed her marriage to her husband as null and void. The leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom too issued a fatwa supporting the stand taken by the local Panchayat on the issue.....

From Pakistan to Egypt, The Muslim Countries That Have Moved Ahead From Triple Talaq
Radhika Iyengar

.... Talaq al-Bidat emerged during the second century, when Omayyad rulers found that the laws “imposed by the Prophet on the facility of repudiation interfered with indulgence of their caprice and endeavoured to find an escape from the strictness of law.” Ahmad further writes, “It must be noted that it was not Islam, but Omayyad practices that gave validity to these divorces.”....

Justice by Law: Triple Talaq Will Not Be Addressed By Political Rhetoric, Trial By Media Or Social Boycotts
Tahir Mahmood

The argument that triple divorce is Bid’at (repugnant to true Islamic law) but it cannot be legally done away with does not stand to reason. The strange formula of “bad in theology but good in law” associated with triple Talaq — to which the British Indian courts adhered in the distant past — has no legs to stand on in a modern 21st century society which is, or must be, governed by the principles of law, and not theology....
