UP wants to know stand of women on triple talaq

UP wants to know stand of women on triple talaq

The Centre has sought scrapping of triple talaq and polygamy among Muslims, saying these practices are not protected by fundamental right to practice religion.

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.

Sadiq said that the Muslim Community provided talaq in such a way that the girl lives respectfully in the society, adding that it just needs some time to take a decision on the issue.

This, in turn, the government contended, "impacts her status, her choices, her conduct and her right to a life with dignity". It may be recalled that many Muslim women have filed PILs in the SC challenging the provision of triple talaq and "nikah halala", terming them as regressive.

"The conferment of a social status based on patriarchal values or one that is at the mercy of menfolk is incompatible with the letter and spirit of Articles 14 and 15", it said. "She could not bear it", said Nissa's father Jaggan. The submissions drawn by advocate Madhvi Divan have been settled by Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi.

With just under fifteen minutes left UNC went on a four-minute scoring drought that let the Bulldogs get back in the match. The Tar Heels turned the extra possession into an inside hoop from Isaiah Hicks that made it 68-65 with 26 seconds left.

The apex court had on March 30 observed that practices of "triple talaq", "nikah halala" and polygamy among Muslims were important issues involving "sentiments" and a Constitution bench would hear the pleas challenging these from May 11.

"I believe every woman should get justice be it any caste or religion", he said. The government had earlier this week told the Supreme Court that triple talaq violates Muslim women's right to equality and dignity.

"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".

Days after the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) told the Supreme Court that the sanctity of Muslim personal laws cannot be altered, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked the women welfare department to oversee an exercise of collecting opinion of Muslim women on the triple talaq practice so that these could be presented before the top court.
