“Triple talaq a bona fide Qur’anic practice”


Every religion has its own followings whether it is Hindu, Muslim or any other religion existing in this country

Triple talaq one of the customary practices in the Islamic culture in India has nowadays become the most paramount and conspicuous issue.

The apex court of India has taken into its consideration about the unconstitutional approach towards triple talaq (Shayra bano v. union of India &Anr.) as per the petitioned filed by the state and releasing a questionnaire on the viability of a uniform civil code. All India Muslim personal law board (a self-appointed custodian and defender of Islam) in this regard pointed out few points stating the practice to be beneficial for both the spouses in the wedlock and is not a “un-Quranic” form of divorce.

The application of uniform civil code is conflict with the right given in the article 25 of the constitution of India which states the right to practice a religion freely and adopting uniform civil code over the person laws will itself make the article 25 vague. Moreover, as a minority community it would be difficult for Muslims to clutch over the code which will be made in the respect of majority community i.e. “the Hindutva

Muslim personal laws have given equal protection of rights whether it is man or woman. While triple talaq as a form of Quranic divorce is never done in one sitting by saying talaq talaq talaq but as per Quran “Those who intend to divorce their wives shall wait four months; if they change their minds and reconcile, then God is forgiver, merciful. If they go through with the divorce, then God is hearer, knower. (2:226-227) and the divorced women must wait for three menstrual courses.” Triple talaq provides security to wife, does not scandalises their character, and doesn’t deters remarriage prospects for both.
