Mumbai: Over a million women have signed a petition filed by RSS-affiliated Islamic group Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) to abolish the practice of Triple Talaq.
Triple Talaq is referred to an Islamic practice where a man is allowed to divorce his wife by saying the word ‘Talaq’ for three consecutive times, without any legitimacy.
The Muslim National Forum (MRM) associated with the RSS has launched a campaign against Triple Talaq.
According to the news agency, the petition signing on behalf of the MRM is being said that it should not be seen by linking religion, because it is a social problem.
Let’s say that many women have also demanded to abolish Triple Talaq by placing a petition in the Supreme Court.
The central government has also told the Supreme Court that it is against the right of equal rights to women and men in the Constitution.
However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has defended this practice. He says that a woman is murdered, it is better that she be divorced.
AIMPLB says, “Religions can not be questioned in the courts of law.
Prime Mister Narendra Modi also said that they are against three divorces. He said, “The life of Muslim women can not be allowed to be eliminated from three divorces.”
