Uttar Pradesh: Muslim clerics object to Lucknow University’s decision of including Triple Talaq in curriculum, demand it to be dropped

The sociology department of the Lucknow University had introduced the subjects of Triple Talaq, LGBT issues in their postgraduate level curriculum.

The decision of the Lucknow University to introduce ‘Triple Talaq’ as a subject in the curriculum has not received well by Muslim clerics. The Muslim clerics have now protested against varsity’s decision claiming that it will ‘paint a wrong picture’ of the Shariat, reports Deccan Herald.

According to the reports, the sociology department of the Lucknow University had introduced the subjects of Triple Talaq, LGBT issues in their postgraduate level curriculum. The aim was to educate students and create awareness so that the misuse of triple talaq (instant divorce) by a section of Muslim men is checked.

“Triple talaq will be taught in the paper ‘Law and Society’ under the topic of law related to marriage and divorce. Under it, laws related to divorce for Hindus, Christian and Muslims will be taught. The issue of triple talaq has also been included with the view to develop understanding among the students about contemporary issues,” said Prof Sukant Chowdhury, a faculty in the Sociology department.

However, Muslim clerics have protested against such decision claiming that it would “paint a wrong picture” of the Shariat (Islamic Laws) among the students and must be “dropped”.

Sunni cleric and senior All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) member Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangimahali said, “We are not against the teaching of topics like marriage, divorce and other social systems… but to teach only about triple talaq will portray the Shariat in the negative light,” he said.

Maulana Rashid said that already there are a lot of misconceptions about triple talaq in society. “The current debate on triple talaq does not convey the truth,” he added.

Another senior Muslim cleric also echoed similar sentiments and demanded that the topic should be “dropped” from the syllabus immediately.

The officials at the Lucknow University defended the decision to introduce the issue of Triple Talaq in its curriculum. “Triple talaq has ignited a serious debate in the society… the students need to be taught about the effects of such a system on the society… there is nothing wrong in its inclusion in the syllabus,” Deccan Herald quoted an official.

The senior varsity official also rejected the contention that such controversial issues should not be made part of the syllabus.
