Talaq, New Law Of Triple Talaq Challenged by Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama 5/5 (6)


Triple Talaq :We suffered a lot now its the time for you. Is the statement roaming all around motivating the women to take their own stand and guard. But is this the way to force people on line. By making them suffer as much as we suffered. Is the biggest question arising.

Comes another hurdle to cross to. Samastha Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama. A religious organisation of Sunni Muslim scholars and clerics in Kerala. Has moved the top court seeking to declare the new act as unconstitutional.

Samastha Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama, One of the biggest religious organisation of Sunni Muslims scholars and clerics in Kerala. On August 2 they moved the supreme court by challenging the constitutionality of the triple talaq. Quoting that it’s only objective is “to punish Muslim husbands”. Sounds not that right to all or may sound selfish but don’t you think a criminal must be punished before he poisons the whole entire society.

Triple Talaq : Should It Be An Offence ???

The Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act of 2019 makes instant triple talaq a penal offence. It proposes maximum sentence of 3 years imprisonment when a Muslim husband pronounces instant triple talaq. The offence is cognizable and non-bailable.

“If the motive was to protect a Muslim wife in an unhappy marriage, no reasonable person can believe that the means to ensure it is by putting an errant husband in jail for three years and create a non-bailable offence for merely saying ‘talaq, talaq, talaq’. Further, the offence is confined only to Muslim husbands.”

“It is absurd that for an utterance which has no legal effect, whether spoken by Muslim, Hindu or Christian, it is only the Muslim husband who is penalised with a three-year sentence. Protection of wives cannot be achieved by incarceration of husbands….” the organisation, represented by advocate Zulfiker Ali P.S., said.

The petition says that the supreme court has already declared the articulation of triple talaq “null and void”. The marriage will continue even after uttering talaq 3 times. If triple talaq has thus no legal effect, why should the government go ahead and make it an offence now?

This petition has become a big topic to be talked about. Many stands with it but alot are against it. Triple talaq was a real big stain on woman’s self esteem. That unfortunately they do have. So, as it gave the whole power of a relationship in the male’s hand making him superior. And only giving him the privilege or rather right to choose. It was a curse for women and destroyed the lives of many.

Now it’s really a big point to think about and to put up opinions on. What’s your thought about it. Share it in the comment section below.
