Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: A group of around 150 Muslim women from across the country plans to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to share their woes on triple talaq, halala, and other Islamic issues that plague them. Under the banner of the Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), around 10 workers of the organisation and the rest of the victims of the Shari’ah will be in the group. The MRM is also brainstorming on the issue before the matter starts in the court on 11 May.

Convener of the organisation Mohammad Afzal said, “We have sought time from the PM and we’re hoping that we would get an appointment very soon. We have plans to take as many victims as possible in this group to meet the PM. So they could meet the PM and share their woes.”

“Besides meeting the PM, the MRM is going to assess the campaign that it had unleashed across the country against triple talaq in its national executive meeting in Haridwar on 5-6 April. It is also going to take up the matter of the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya in this meeting.”

The organisation has been running a campaign against triple talaq for very long so Muslim women could get justice. The All India Muslim Personal Law Board is one of the petitioners in this case and the manch wants to counter their campaign. The MRM has prepared a questionnaire for them.

In one of the affidavits, the AIMPLB has said that woman do not have any right to take decisions in Islam. The MRM wishes to ask the board if a woman’s consent is needed for nikah (wedding), how can her right be denied in talaq.

Referring to the Qur’an in this regard is absolutely wrong while the AIMPLB has always referred to that book in this matter, according to the MRM. The Qur’an does not allow triple talaq while Muslims are using text and WhatsApp messages, fax, Facebook, telephone and twitter to divorce their wives!
