Congress accuses Modi govt of wanting to divide and bankrupt Muslims by making them pay for divorce proceedings with Triple Talaq Bill

Congress, in its bid to retain its feeble minority votebank, seems to be batting for the Sharia law and its evils without much caring about the plight of Muslim women.

Congress has been opposing the Triple Talaq Bill introduced by the Modi government tooth and nail. Today in Rajya Sabha, during the discussion on the bill, Ghulam Nabi Azad, senior Congress leader made a bizarre statement that exposes the Congress mindset. Azad said that the Modi government wants Triple Talaq to be abolished because they want to ‘Muslims to keep fighting among themselves’ and go bankrupt while fighting divorce proceedings.

Congress leader Azad said that the Triple Talaq Bill is politically motivated so the “minorities are occupied in fighting amongst themselves”.

He said that the husband and wife will have to hire lawyers to fight for divorce, sell their land in the process to pay for the lawyers. He then said that by the time the jail term of the husband is over, both the husband and wife would have gone bankrupt.

He continued his bizarre tirade by saying wheen the Muslim man comes out of jail, he will either commit suicide or become dacoits and thieves.

Saying all of this, the Congress leader said that this is the true intention of the bill.

Essentially, Congress seems to believe that instant Talaq, by which the Muslim husband can merely utter the word ‘Talaq’ three times and abandon his wife is a practice that is worth retaining so that Muslims feel ‘united’ and don’t end up spending much money on court proceedings.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019, seeks to criminalize the act of instant divorce among Muslims with a three-year jail sentence for men who practice triple talaq, which has been made illegal by the Supreme Court.

Interestingly, it was the Congress government during the Prime Ministership of Rajiv Gandhi that had overturned the famous Shah Bano verdict of the Supreme Court and deprived a Muslim woman of the maintenance she had won the right to in the court of law.

Congress, in its bid to retain its feeble minority votebank, seems to be batting for the Sharia law and its evils without much caring about the plight of Muslim women.

As the opposition parties continue to oppose the Tripple talaq bill, another incident of triple talaq and nikah halala has emerged. A woman from Bhilai in Chhattisgarh received a triple talaq from her husband over the phone. The husband went on to marry another woman after that. After that, her father-in-law had asked her to undergo nikah halala in order to get back with her husband.

Recently, a Surat man had given triple talaq to his wife after her parents could not give dowry to buy an auto-rickshaw. In another shocking incident, a man issued Triple Talaq and then pressurized her to undergo halala with his younger brother and uncle.

In Uttar Pradesh, Muslim clerics objected to Lucknow University’s decision of including Triple Talaq in the curriculum and demanded it to be dropped.
