  1. Triple Talaq and women’s rights: The triple talaq issue debate in India has gotten so heated that the PM had to appeal to all to not politicize the issue. The Supreme Court is to take up petitions filed against the practice of triple talaq, for hearing from the 11th of May 2017. It could mark a point of big change in Indian Muslim women’s conditions.
  2. AIMPLB is clear – no change is possible: Amid all discussions, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which has been vehemently opposing legal interference in religious matters so far, has slightly moderated its stance on the issue, calling for a social boycott of those misusing triple talaq norms.
  3. Solidly Regressive? Some feel that the AIMPLB was forced to take this stand in the face of criticism for not ending a regressive practice, and to save its credibility. In fact, the decision to ask for a social boycott proves that the practice is despicable. However, they still don’t want to give it up completely.
  4. A useful solution could have been… In fact, the AIMPLB should have itself initiated this reform instead of opposing the reform. Practices like triple talaq and polygamy should be viewed in the social context rather than in the religious context. These practices are pulling the Muslim community backwards.

  6. Women have no similar right: Triple Talaq is unfair for Muslim women because Muslim women do ot have a similar right to divorce their husbands. The real problem is not the practice of triple talaq, but the women’s financial dependence on men. If women become educated and independent,  divorce would not scare them as they would be financially secure. That has not happened in 70 years of independence.
  7. Others have seen sense: Many Muslim countries, including Bangladesh, Pakistan, Turkey, Indonesia and others have already banned the practice of triple talaq. India has not been able to do so because of the unabashed politics of appeasement indulged in by successive governments. The Shah Bano case is a blot on India’s legal face.

  9. Self-styled messiahs: Critics say that on the contrary, the fear of the Muslim community can be addressed and they can be assured of their religion which is guaranteed by Article 25 of the Constitution. The Muslim religious clerics have become the self-styled representatives of the Muslim community who keep stoking insecurity. What they do not understand that they are blocking the progress of their own community.
  10. Law is for humans, humans are not for any law: Any law or system which reduces the dignity of human beings should not be essential. Even if triple talaq were to be an essential part of Islam, it should still be discarded, as women do not have the same right. They should be educated and allowed to live life as they want. Women have suffered for far too long. Muslims today need modern civil laws based on equality and justice.
