The Supreme court of India decided to cancel practice so-called “instant divorce” Muslims, calling it unconstitutional. Practice, the abolition of which was the rights of women, called contrary to Islam.
India is one of the few countries in the world where a Muslim can divorce his wife for several minutes, uttering the word “talaq” (divorce in Arabic) three times. In many Muslim countries this practice is prohibited.
The court decision was made in response to lawsuits challenging this practice. The lawsuits were filed by five women Muslim women with experience of such a divorce, and two representatives of human rights groups. “Muslim women in India suffer in the past 70 years. This is a historic day for us, but not the end of our history. I can’t even tell you how many Indian women have supported us,” said one of the activists Zakia soman.
In recent years in India there have been many cases triple Talaka, when men declared their wives divorce three times. It is not necessary to do it in person – it was enough to just letter, text message or phone call. Despite the fact that about triple talake there is no mention in the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad, this practice has existed long enough.
The researchers of Islam say that the Koran soderjitsya clear explanation of the procedure of divorce – “O Prophet! When you give wives a divorce, divorce within the specified period, the score this time and fear Allah, your Lord.”
According to human rights activists in some Islamic States such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, have banned triple talaq, but in India this practice exists in the absence of universal legislation on family and marriage, applicable to every citizen of the country. The decision of the court practice triple Talaka called “contrary to the main principles of Islam, and article 14 of the Constitution guaranteeing equality”.
