Triple Talaq


ALIGARH: Offering a bizarre solution to end the controversial practice of Triple Talaq, the Hindu Mahasabha has asked those Muslim women who have been a victim of the practice, to adopt Hinduism.

For the same, an ‘Utthaan Yagya’ was held at the office of the outfit.

Organised by priestess Pooja Shakun Pandey, many Muslim men and women were seen participating in the yagya.

“We request the judiciary to bring an end to these exploiting practices. We have prayed to God to strengthen these Muslim women so that they fight against this menace,”Pandey told ANI. 

Pandey further said that she is devoted towards the protection of these victims and would happily work for their betterment.  
However, earlier on Tuesday, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) vice-president Kalbe requested the Government to not interfere in the matter of Triple Talaq, adding the Muslim board would eradicate this evil themselves.

"The Muslim Personal Board has decided that they will eradicate this problem from the society itself. We request the government to not to interfere in this matter," said Sadiq.

The Allahabad High Court had in December 2016 held that the practice of triple talaq is 'cruel' and raised an issue that whether the Muslim Personal Law could be amended to provide relief to the Muslim women.
The High Court also stated that the form of 'instant divorce' is 'most demeaning'.
The Supreme Court is to hear multiple pleas challenging the validity of triple talaq, 'nikah halala' and polygamy practices among Muslims community on May 11 by a Constitution bench during the summer vacation.
Earlier on March 27, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) told the apex court that the pleas challenging such practices among Muslims were not maintainable as the issues fell outside the realm of judiciary.
