Muslim Women term Triple Talaq a ‘non-issue’, Want better education, job


AMN / New Delhi

Women representative of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has termed the issue of Triple Talaq as a ‘non-issue’,  saying it is being blown out of proportion by those having  political agenda to malign the Muslim community. They said that Muslim women needed better education, healthcare and job. ” Talaq is not an important issue with us”.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday the JIH National Secretary for Women, Atiya Siddiqa said: “Islamic laws are divine and so can’t be changed by anyone”. She however said that the Muslim community needs awareness and education about Muslim Personal Laws to check their misuse.

On Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s advice to Muslims not to politicize the issue of Triple Talaq, she said: “We all know who is politicizing triple talaq. They should stop that. We want zero divorce and that is why we are running this nationwide campaign.” “Muslims are being maligned and media is projecting them in bad light. We want to improve our image,” she said.

On polygamy, Ms Siddiqa said: “There is wisdom behind provision for polygamy in Islam. It is a provision for rehabilitation of widows and divorcees, used in specific circumstances. Islam wants men to treat women with dignity’’.

She also briefed the media about their ongoing nationwide ‘’Muslim Personal Law Awareness Campaign’’.

“We are setting up counselling centres and Shariah panchayats in different parts of the country to resolve family disputes, including divorce. We are also targeting 10 lakh mosques in the country in order to apprise the Muslim masses about the teachings of Islam on family matters like marriage, divorce, inheritance etc. Our awareness campaign is in full swing in the country. JIH cadres are reaching people and educating them on issues like marriage, divorce, Khula and inheritance,” she informed.

Ms Siddiqa said: ‘During the campaign, JIH plans to hold 10,000 awareness events including public speeches and press meets, free distribution of 2 million books and booklets on family issues like marriage, divorce, inheritance etc. Besides, JIH is holding 700 symposiums on “Gender Justice in Islam” throughout the country. Apart from metros, cities and towns, JIH cadres are reaching out to 500 slum areas and 20,000 villages.

Overall, JIH has set a target of individually reaching 1.5 million Muslims and 100 million countrymen through various forms of media. We have made a mobile android app called MPLAC and a dedicated website The national campaign will conclude on 7th May”.
