Triple talaq is gross injustice against women: Muslim clerics

Asserting that triple talaq has no mention either in Islam or in the holy Quran, the Muslim clerics on Friday said this particular divorce system is nothing but gross injustice against women.

Muslim cleric Maulana Kalbe Sadiq said the Sunnis practice the triple talaq system and added that his sect is ready to cooperate with the former if a solution is chalked to dissolve this divorce system which is becoming an insult to women.

"Islam says nothing against reasoning, nothing against justice. For us triple talaq is against both reasoning and justice, would request the Sunni brothers to reconsider this law. We are ready to cooperate with them if they can chalk out a solution, as this triple talaq is becoming a reason of insult for the Muslims," said Sadiq.

Echoing similar sentiments, another Muslim cleric Maulana Saif Abbas said triple talaq is like torturing women.

"Triple talaq is totally wrong and there is no mention of the same either in Islam or in Quran. This is like torturing women. Triple talaq is nothing but gross injustice to women," said Abbas.

This comes after the All-India Shia Muslim Personal Law Board yesterday declared that it would intervene in the Saira Banu case in the Supreme Court on the issue of triple talaq.

The executive council meeting of the board, held yesterday, also asked the government to ban triple talaq the way it banned the Sati practice decades ago.

The All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB) had also suggested the adoption of a 'modern nikahnama' (marriage contract), seeking changes in the terms and conditions of marriage under the Islamic law.
