Talaq politics 29.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
No party can claim to be Caesar's wife when it comes to reforms in the Muslim community All the parties that stood up for and against the legislation seeking to criminalise the practice of instant divorce (triple talaq) among Muslims denied that politics governed their respective positions. But behind this social reform attempt is a mountain of vote-bank politics. The strategies are pretty straightforward. The BJP, which has often found to be ignored by the Muslims, wants to divide what it calls the ‘vote bank’ (a euphemism for Muslim votes) of opponents. The Congress and the so-called secular block don’t want to antagonise Muslims by forcing a reform as they prefer the matter to be dealt with by the community internally. Religious politics is a tinderbox and any tinkering with social norms has its own consequences. Rajiv Gandhi learnt it in a bitter way in the Shah Bano case, which opened a Pandora’s box that the Congress was never able to shut.  The Supreme Court has already made ‘triple talaq’ ...

Women activists call it ‘political move’ to polarise country before polls 28.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
New Delhi Several women activists on Thursday criticised the passage of the triple talaq bill, saying it was a “political move” aimed at polarising the country before the Lok Sabha polls. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2018, was passed by Lok Sabha on Thursday amid protests from opposition parties. Secretary, All India Progressive Women's Association (AIPWA), Kavita Krishnan, asked how the law can be different for different communities. "Why such an offence (abandoning wives) when committed by a non-Muslim man is considered to be a civil offence and the same is being criminalised when committed by a Muslim man?" she asked. “I think the fundamental objection that my organisation, AIPWA, and other women groups had on this bill stands. We had objected to the offence of instant triple talaq being criminalised. Our position is that there is no basis to make this a criminal offence,” Krishnan said. She said a wrongful attempt to divorce or deserting a wife must be a civil offence and ...
