Tripura: Jamiat Ulama-E-Hind not to support any interference on ‘triple talaq’ issue; Slams Centre
AGARTALA: As demand to ban 'triple talaq' issue rocked the entire country, Tripura State Jamiat Ulama-E-Hind came in opposition to the system. Slamming the Centre holding responsible for the 'triple talaq' debate, they said that they would not support any interference in the Muslim's 'personal law.'
"Islam has its own path of law. But, recently, some political parties especially the NDA government tried to interfere in the Islamic religion by focusing on equality of women for their own personal interest. Jamiat Ualama-E Hind would never ever support any kind of interference with the Islamic law and any verdict in support of the campaign launched by the Muslim body," Mufti Taibur Rehman, president of Tripura State Jamiat Ulama-E-Hind said.
He added that there are three types of talaq – Ahasan, Hasan and Bedat through which a married Muslim man could divorce his wife according to Islamic law. On this basis, a husband, if pronounce the word 'talaq' thrice even during his wife's absence, it is considered as legal divorce.
"If the Supreme Court gives any verdict that goes against the Islamic law, it would not be supported. It would be considered Apex court's interference in Islamic religion and we would stir against this verdict," he said.
The All India Muslim Women Personnel Law Board filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a ban on this triple talaq system and talaq given over through email, SMS or via post.
