Triple talaq ban will ‘not benefit’ Muslim women: AIMPLB leader Umari

New Delhi: Banning triple talaq will ‘not benefit’ Muslim women, vice-president of All India Muslim Personal Law Board Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari on Thursday claimed, amid a raging debate on the issue.

“Even if tripe talaq is outlawed, those who want to trouble their wives will still continue to do so and stop giving conjugal rights to their wives. This will lead to many complications and jeopardise the woman’s stature and dignity,” he said.

Incidentally, the Supreme Court on Thursday said it would examine whether the practice of triple talaq among Muslims is fundamental to their religion, but it may not deliberate upon the issue of polygamy as it began hearing petitions challenging the practice.

Umari, also president of Islamic forum Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) reiterated that the problem of divorced Muslim women has been “blown out of proportion and statistics don’t support the claim of this problem being endemic within the Muslim community”.

National Convener of ‘Muslim Personal Law Awareness Campaign’ Muhammad Jafar also briefed about the campaign during the press conference. The pan-India campaign ran from April 23 to May 7.

“The objective of the campaign was to create awareness within the Muslim community regarding their personal laws as well as to remove the misconceptions and misgivings among fellow countrymen regarding the family laws in Islam that are related to the way Muslims marry, divorce and inherit,” he said.
