Triple Talaq

NEW DELHI: Jilani still believes the government was posturing “because of the fact that no official statement has come from any minister or bureaucrat”. He also said Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had stated there was no need of a law to deal with the issue after the SC abolished the practice.

All India Shia Personal Law Board spokesperson Maulana Yasoob Abbas said the practice has ended in most Islamic countries. “This is much needed because, despite the practice being banned, people were still resorting to giving instant Triple Talaq. There is no mention of the practice in the Holy Quran. The Shia community has always been vocal against this practice,” Abbas said.

In April, the AISPLB had asked the Uttar Pradesh government to draft a strict law against Triple Talaq similar to the one against the practice of sati, a ritual performed by some Hindu communities in which a widow burned to death in her husband’s funeral pyre.

“The need of the hour is to enact a strict law against Triple Talaq in one go that is similar to the anti-sati law to prevent any Muslim woman from getting victimised and ensure that the culprit is punished,” Abbas said.

Farah Faiz, one of the petitioners in the SC case, said it is the need of the hour that government frames the law.
