Islamic group files complaint, seeks a ban on TV show that talks about Triple Talaq

An Islamic association named Raza Academy has filed a complaint against a TV show named ‘Ishq Subhan Allah’ which sought to highlight the Triple Talaq issue in a mature manner. The TV show has also taken into account the recent Supreme Court judgement on the matter.

The academy has sought a ban on the show as it is depicting Islam in a ‘wrongful manner’. It felt that the visual media can affect children badly. As per reports complaint under sections 124A, 153A, 153B, 504, 292, 293 and 295A have been filed. The academy has also sought a ban on the show under section 95 of criminal procedure act. The complaint by the academy claims that the programme “shows Islam in a bad light, the scripts of the entire serial is made to understand that Islam religion needs a lot of changes, revival, amendments”

Talking about the show to DNA on March 8, Deepak Rajadhyaksha – Deputy Business Head of Zee TV, had said, “Ishq Subhan Allah asks viewers to pause and reflect on the true interpretation of religion in our daily lives. It questions the true importance we accord to a woman’s choice in every decision that a couple makes, including entering the institution of marriage as also ending it with dignity. Even as the triple talaaq awaits sanction in the Parliament, it is our endeavour to get people to evaluate for themselves if it is fair for men to be able to single-handedly annul a marriage they had entered into with a woman’s full consent. Why should she now play the role of a passive, mute spectator and not be empowered instead, to have a say in its termination? Our protagonist Zara, much like the forward-thinking middle class of today, is taking charge of her destiny and asking these pertinent questions, paving the way for a better future for millions of women like her.”

Perhaps the Raza foundation is concerned about the reformative streak in the TV show. The Deputy Business Head, Zee TV told Indian Express, “Yes, we have heard about this, but are yet to receive any official intimation from the authorities.” We need to wait and watch if the move leads to a ban on the TV show or not.
