Should India review Muslim divorce? -

Wed, Jul 22, 2015, 02:51 AM
Instant divorces are said to be common among the Muslims and either it is a myth or fact but Women's groups in India are calling for a review of the way Muslim men are able to divorce their wives. A process known as talaq, based on the Arabic word for divorce, allows Muslim men to end their marriages by pronouncing their intention three times. According to Islam, that should happen over a period of three months, to give both parties time to think through the consequences. But women's groups have long argued that the declaration is being uttered in one go, effectively resulting in instant divorce. So-called 'triple talaq' is banned in many Islamic countries, including Pakistan and Bangladesh. Now rights activists say the opportunity for 'digital divorce' is leaving women even more vulnerable, with triple talaq being seen on social media sites such as Facebook, Skype and WhatsApp. It's adding to pressure for reforms, but is there an appetite for change in a patriarchal society that has historically favoured men? Presenter: Hazem Sika Guests: Kamal Faruqui, co-founder of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board. Zakia Soman, co-founder of the women's rights group, Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan. Karuna Nundy, an international lawyer, and advocate at the Supreme Court of India.
