Today in a monumental judgement, the Supreme Court struck down the practice of instant Triple Talaq. The reasoning given behind the court order was that the triple talaq was against the basic tenets of Quran and thus violated Sharia. The verdict further stated that it also wasn’t an integral part of the religion. So going by that logic, the Islamic clerics should not have had an issue with the verdict as it didn’t bring in points like fundamental rights but merely implemented what the Quran stated.

But even after this, some of the clerics became unhappy with the verdict because it supposedly interfered with the Shariat law. Here are a few instances:

  • Moradabad’s district Imam Maulana Raees has stated that if the central government frames a law regarding Triple Talaq, they (Imams) won’t accept it. This is because in their religion the laws made by Allah are in practice, which cannot be changed by anyone. He also claimed that triple talaq was Allah’s law. He also made a very controversial statement that, normally talaqs only happen when a woman is in the wrong. He also stated that women who get triple talaq are not the victims but are the ones responsible for it.
  • Maulana Syed Arshad Madani, the current president of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind claimed that they would move to the courts against this ‘anti-shariat verdict’ by the Supreme Court. He also looked like not honouring the verdict by claiming that if a verdict comes against Quran and Hadis, he would still follow the religious texts.
  • Maulana Kasim of the Muslim education institute Darul Uloom Deoband UP has claimed that the issue of triple talaq was related to the Quran and Shariat. He also warned that no interference would be tolerated in them. He also asked the Supreme Court and the government to not interfere in the matter.
  • The Qazi of Meerut Sajiddin Siddiqui made another big statement that there shouldn’t be any law not related to Quran and Hadis. He referred to the Supreme Court’s instruction to the central government for making a law regarding the matter and stated that all the Ulamas in the country should ensure that the Central government doesn’t make any such law which ran afoul of their religious scriptures.
  • Ala Hazrat of Bareilly too wasn’t pleased with the verdict. He also stated that the verdict which interfered in shariat couldn’t be tolerated. He is now supposedly pondering on the Supreme Court verdict and his Dargah’s position on the verdict would be made clear after a meeting.

Even though the above clerics opposed the verdict possibly before understanding it fully, there were some who openly supported it.

Shia cleric, Maulana Yasoob Abbas stated that the Shia Law Board has been fighting against the practice since 2007 and welcome this. He also called it a great first step in order to signal that many other reforms are still remaining. Various other Muslim clerics also welcomed this verdict. A certain Moulana Ahmed Barkati praised it by calling it unique and unparalleled.
