So What Is The Reason Behind The New AIMPLB Affidavit?
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

Now again, what authorities do the Qazis have in contemporary India? How are they to ensure that the marriage contract expressly forbids instant triple Talaq? Given the situation that Muslim women are at the receiving end, what if there is pressure on them not to put this component in the contract. How is the Qazi then supposed to behave and act? The simple fact is that Qazis have no authority today and by invoking the institution of the Qazis, the AIMPLB is telling us that they still live in a time when the institution of Qazi was relevant. And that precisely seems to be the problem. They are living in a time warp and refuse to wake from their slumber and see the light of the day. The world has changed while they slept all this while.....

Judges Are Not Robots with Encyclopaedic Juristic Knowledge and No Heart, Intellect or Common Sense or Sense of Justice
Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

Having failed to establish its case by telling lies upon lies about the Qur'an in their recent submission as reported by the media and exposed by this writer in his last two articles [3-5], the advocates of triple Talaqs an Islamic custom, have taken to a labyrinthine legal argument to support their case. It is reminiscent of labyrinthine Fatwas by terror groups who will cite opinions of different scholars of different era and overwhelm the lay reader into accepting their views but the world knows they are terrorists and so are those who advocated instant triple Talaq…

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....

On Triple Talaq, Court Must Say: Religious Practice Cannot Trump Modern Constitutional Morality

 This is the “essential practices” test of the court. In order to ascertain whether something deserves protection under religious liberty clauses, courts may have to inquire whether the practice is in fact religious. But our courts have gone further. Rather than subjecting religious practices to the test of constitutionality, they have given lexical priority to the religious practice. One line of argument in the triple Talaq case suggests that the only issue in this case is whether the practice is genuinely Islamic. If it is, uphold; if not, abolish it…..

A story that must be shared. Living in the slums of Nizamuddin Basti, her father, a rickshaw puller at times, couldn’t even give her and four siblings three meals a day. “On top of that, he used to gamble. And then one day, my parents fixed my marriage. I was only 15. I refused. I told my mother, I don’t want to be helpless like her, dependent on someone else for every penny, struggling to raise kids, falling sick every now and then because of early marriage and motherhood.....

Triple Talaq: There Are Lies, Damn Lies, and Then the AIMPLB’s Claims

The board and the obscurantist patriarchy of the community in India have been choosing their mitigable issues very carefully. There is no resistance to secular legal measures curbing anything that is in-your-face oppression of women – the beating of wives is clearly too unpalatable to be brought on board – but the tools of systemic oppression are adhered to....

Triple Talaq Not Fundamental to Islam
A. Faizur Rahman

Given the reluctance of Muslim religious bodies in India to give up their sectarian conformism and delegitimise Talaq-e-Bid’a, the Supreme Court will be well within its rights under Articles 141 and 142 of our Constitution to resort to, in consultation with progressive Islamic scholars, a neoteric interpretation of the terms “Talaq” and “Shariat” mentioned in section (2) of The Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937, and lay down the procedure of divorce in accordance with the egalitarian and gender-just principles of the Quran....
