An Asian country took a controversial decision
India decided to prohibit the Islamic divorce, in which says the word “talaq” 3 times. India considered that this act violates the rights of Muslim women.
There are about 170 million Muslims in India who follow the Muslim Personal Law.
The law let a man divorce his wife easily by saying the Arabic word “talaq” 3 times, face to face or even using a telephone, text message or social media post as some scholars said.
The government will have another six months to get Parliament’s approval for the ordinance to become law. But in the meantime, suspects can be prosecuted using the ordinance.
