Calling the move to introduce a legislation seeking to criminalise triple talaq an attempt to demonise the Muslim community under the garb of "saving" and "protecting" Muslim women, Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday dashed off a letter to the Union Minister for Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad, objecting to the Centre's proposal.
Triple talaq - the practice of Muslim men uttering talaq three times for an instant divorce - is worse than murder, said BJP minister Giriraj Singh on Friday.
Stating that Muslim women already had a right to seek maintenance from their husbands by virtue of Section 125 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), he said when a legislation is made without accounting for awareness to the socio-culture context, it can have potentially disastrous consequences. The projected bill gives a three-year jail sentence as well as fine and says that the offense will be unmistakable and non-bailable.
The government had earlier constituted a ministerial committee to draft a suitable legistlation which would make instantaneous practice of triple talaq an offence. It is on this basis, the practice of concurrent talaq has been termed invalid in most of the Muslim countries. The triple talaq is now unconstitutional, which means that the person who commits "triple talaq" will be breaking the rules, as it is a penal offence and for which he or she could be sentenced to 3 years in prison. "This is the first step in the direction of codified Muslim law and hopefully there will be a discussion in Parliament to make it more comprehensive", said BMMA co-founder Zakia Soman.
