UP govt to take views of Muslim women on triple talaq issue

The Board has opposed the PILs seeking an end to the practice of triple talaq and has filed counter affidavit in the apex court defending Muslim Personal Laws and triple talaq.

In yet another shocking case of triple talaq, a Muslim woman sat on a dharna outside her husband's house in Hamdard Nagar in Jamalpur area of Aligarh after she was divorced (through triple talaq) by her husband without even informing her.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that the government stands clear on the issue of triple talaq and justice will be provided to every woman.

"The right of a woman to human dignity, social esteem and self- worth are vital facets of her right to life under Article 21 of the Constitution", the Centre has said.

The Uttar Pradesh government will take into account the views of the Muslim women on the issue of triple talaq and then present its side in the Supreme Court hearing the matter.

The practices of triple talaq, nikah halala and polygamy, the Centre has said, "impact the social status and dignity of Muslim women and render them "unequal and vulnerable qua men belonging to their own community; women belonging to other communities and also Muslim women outside India".

Souza has been the Rays' best hitter so far and takes a.417 average into Monday - just in time for another trip to NY . NY built six new fan gathering areas in the stands, including two where there had been obstructed-view bleacher seats.

"Nikah halala" is a practice meant to curb incidence of divorce under which a man can not remarry his former wife without her having to go through the process of marrying someone else, consummating it, getting divorced, observing the separation period called "Iddat" and then coming back to him again. The submissions drawn by advocate Madhvi Divan have been settled by the Attornewy Genewral Mukul Rohatgi.

A number of Muslim women have filed petitions to quash the practice of triple talaq and polygamy.

A two-day meeting of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) scheduled here from April 15 will also be discussing the issue of triple talaq.

The Centre said such rights were available to women of other religions and the "unreasonable differentiation/classification between Muslim women and non-Muslim women" could not be "countenanced in a secular country". "It is submitted that the practice of polygamy is a social practice rather than a religious one and therefore would not be protected under Article 25", the counsel added, contending that this was "true also of nikah halala and triple talaq".

"Patriarchal values and traditional notions about the role of women in society are an impediment to the goal of achieving social democracy and they are likely to hold back the community at large, resulting in lopsided development and pockets of social backwardness".

Sadiq, a Shia scholar, acknowledged that triple talaq was unfair to women.
