While triple talaq might just seem like a fast-track to divorce, it's actually quite sexist: while men can utter a single word three times to split from their wives, women still have to receive consent from their husbands in order to pursue divorce.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday hailed as "historic" the Supreme Court ruling on triple talaq and said it grants equality to Muslim women. The BJP passed a resolution there reaffirming his commitment towards building a "society of equal opportunities" where nobody would be treated as inferior.
"We Muslim women are entitled to justice from the courts as well as the legislature". Dignity is guaranteed to all under the constitution.
The highest court in India is putting an end to the practice of instant divorce, which is a win for Muslim women. The board said the practice was "reprehensible", but should not be a matter for the courts or the government. "What is sinful under religion can not be valid under law", said the judges.
"We hope that triple talaq will be banned once and for all in times to come", she said, adding it causes enormous hardships to Muslim women even though "there is no provision of triple talaq in Islam". "His obligation towards the marriage will remain. the wife is also free to drag such a person to police and file a complaint of harassment or domestic violence", the functionary said, indicating penal provisions are present to check the practice. "Article 25 (2) permitted the State to make laws regulating or restricting any economic, financial, political or other secular activity which may be associated with religious practice; and, providing for social welfare and reform or the throwing open of Hindu religious institutions of a public character to all classes and sections of Hindus". The Muslim scholars from Deoband and Bareilly are the ones who have the right to issue fatwas, " she angrily added. Shah Bano sought maintenance from her former husband for herself and her 5 children, which was refused by him. "This can not be seen as an isolated decision, it has opened the other doors for change in our discriminatory system and may affect the continuation of Article 35A and may pave way for common civil code". A decade ago, the group started compiling a list of women facing instant divorce and polygamy, and released a report documenting 100 cases in which instant divorce left women destitute.
Regardless of the scholarly disagreements on triple talaq's place in Islamic law, the women's rights advocates who fought for this verdict are happy to see a sexist practice on its way out.
