India's Muslim Women Fight 'triple talaq' Divorce

    Under ‘triple talaq’, a man can divorce his wife by saying the Urdu word three times.

"I urge our PM to help women like me and stop this tradition of triple talaq which has destroyed lives of innumerable women," Arshiya, who hails from Baramati, told TOI in a choked voice.

There is no need for the clerics to tell us anything about triple talaq. It is anti-women and it does not have Quranic sanction. Triple talaq is banned in a large number of Islamic nations, including Pakistan and Bangladesh in India’s neighbourhood. We are simply demanding that changes be made in the Muslim Personal Law and codified so that the provisions are not left to how the qazis, muftis and maulvis interpret them.

Those who are against our campaign for gender justice are fringe voices and they do not have the support of the majority of Muslims. It is time to end patriarchal control on Muslim women. Politics has prevented women from being heard right since the days of the Shah Bano case. Left to themselves, certain conservative segments will continue to stonewall attempts to put in place marriage and divorce laws that are fair to women.
