If Halala is allowed why not acting? Congress’ Abhishek Manu Singhvi on Zaira Wasim controversy

A few days ago, Zaira Wasim announced her retirement from movies saying that Bollywood had taken away from Islam.

In a surprise move, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi took on Islamist fundamentals while questioning Zaira Wasim’s reason for quitting Bollywood. In a tweet, he questioned that if halala is allowed why is acting considered as haraam.

He was also worried about what would happen if every Indian Muslim adopted this line of reasoning.

As per Sharia custom, the nikah-halala is a custom by which a woman divorced by triple talaq gets to reunite with her husband. Nikah-halala requires a woman to marry another man and consummate the marriage and then take another triple talaq in order to return to her first husband. Often, such temporary marriage is done with another male member of the husband’s family, including father and brothers of the husband.

A few days ago, Zaira Wasim announced her retirement from movies saying that Bollywood had taken away from Islam. In a six-page letter, she explains the reason for doing so while quoting the Quran. Her retirement was hotly debated on social media with several people criticizing her actions.

Before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Congress had promised to scrap the anti triple talaq bill. Following which former Union Minister Arun Jaitley wrote a blog  titled “Does the Bareilly “Nikah-Halala” not shock your conscience?”

After the initial confusion over the claim that Zaira Wasim’s account was hacked, it has now been clarified Zaira Wasim had indeed taken a conscious decision to quit acting so that she could focus on practising her religion.
