Muslim resorting to triple talaq to face 'social boycott': AIMPLB tells SC 22.5.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Muslims resorting to triple talaq will face "social boycott" and an advisory will be issued to the 'Qazis' that they should tell the grooms that they will not resort to such a form of divorce, a prominent Muslim body told the Supreme Court today. Dubbing triple talaq as an "undesirable practice" in the Shariat or Islamic law, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said a dispute between husband and wife should be settled through "mutual interaction" and a code of conduct on this has been released by it, keeping in mind the tenets of the Shariat. The AIMPLB, which filed an affidavit, said that in order to discourage triple talaq as a form of divorce, it has decided to "socially boycott" those Muslims who resort to saying talaq in one go and reduce such divorce incidents. It told the apex court, which had heard the pleas challenging the practice of triple talaq at length for six days, that it has already passed a resolution in its working committee meeting on April 15-16 against the practice of ...

Cleric offers Rs 20L to garland Pak PM with shoes 20.5.2017 DNA: Mumbai
A day after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistani authorities, Muslim religious leader Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi — who had earlier hit the headlines for issuing a fatwa against singer Sonu Nigam — on Friday announced an award of Rs 20 lakh for anyone who would put a garland of Jadhav’s shoes around Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and make him go around India. “Looking at Pakistan, which is patronising terror and is trying to execute Jadhav in an unfair manner, I announce that whoever puts a garland of Jadhav’s shoes around Sharif’s neck and parades him across India would get Rs 20 lakh from me,” Quaderi said at a press conference. “Pakistan calls itself an Islamic country. We perform namaz and carry out fasts according to the holy inscription. Now that there are so many so-called ‘Islamic terror groups’, they should come clean about which portion of the Holy Quran that they follow asks them to spread terror,” he said. Sharif also added ...

Muslim women may be given the right to reject triple talaq: top court 19.5.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Adopting a conciliatory position on the last day of the triple talaq hearing, The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) submitted that it would ask all Qazis to give Muslim women the option of taking triple talaq off the table in the nikahnama (marriage contract). The AIMPLB’s suggestion came in response to a query posed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday, when it asked if it was possible to include a provision in the nikahnama, enabling Muslim women to say no to triple talaq. Representing the Muslim body, senior advocate Kapil Sibal submitted that the AIMPLB should not be dismissed as an NGO. It was a congregation of people who are engaged in the study of Islam. “Hence, whatever they say must not be dismissed,” he said. The court, however, was not convinced. It asked the Muslim board that if they considered the practice sinful, then how could it be practised? “Lots of sinful things are practiced by society and they are protected by law,” Sibal said. The SC on Thursday reserved its judgment on the ...

Armed with the Quran, CJI confronts triple talaq lobby 18.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
On Wednesday, advocates representing the pro-triple talaq contingent were schooled by Chief Justice of India (CJI) JS Khehar, armed with the Quran. In response to Senior Advocate V Giri's argument -- he is representing the Jamiat ulema-e-Hind, the CJI read out verses from the Surah At-Talaq to make the point that talaq-e-biddat (instant talaq) found no mention in the Quran. Only two other forms of talaq — Talaq-e-Ehsan and Talaq-e-Hasan — are mentioned in the holy book, the CJI added. "You have to read all paras before and after to give a complete picture. Even Mr (Kapil) Sibal cited only a select few. If you say the period iddah is compulsory after every pronouncement and it is the third instance after which it becomes irrevocable… hence, Talaq-e-Biddat finds no place in the Quran. We are only pointing this out to you because you should know that we also understand what is happening here and it's not that we are not getting it," said the CJI. Justice Rohinton Nariman, one of the five judges on the ...

Barkati sacked as Shahi Imam: Meet controversial Maulana who held special prayer for Osama Bin Laden 17.5.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The controversial Shahi Imam of Tipu Sultan mosque, Noor-ur Rahman Barkati, who once threatened to ostracise and beat up Muslims if they joined RSS and BJP, was on Wednesday sacked from his post for allegedly making anti-national statements and 'misusing' his position. Barkati, however, refused to step down, asserting, "Nobody has the right to remove me". "We have sent him the notice of termination and he has been asked to vacate the office room allotted to him. We have asked his deputy to conduct prayers and we will appoint a new imam very soon," Prince Ghulam Ahmed Wakf Estate trustee Arif Ahmed told reporters. "We have removed him as the imam of the mosque for his anti-national statements. We never expect an imam, who is a religious person, to cross his line and misuse his post," he said. Ahmed said, "Barkati had shown disrespect to our national leaders and he was using the mosque for political purpose, and for his own financial gains. He was cautioned earlier for his activities.” Barkati has made a ...
