The age old Islamic practice of triple talaq is in the news again. This highly discriminatory and regressive practice entails that a Muslim man can seek divorce from his wife by just saying “talaq” (Arabic for divorce) thrice. This highly controversial practice hasn’t been banned in India yet but strong voices are being raised against this.
Muslim women from across the country have raised their voice against this disgusting practice which has exploited women for years now and a ban on the same is being demanded.
Also referred to as “instant divorce”, this practice has been banned by many countries across the world, including those with high population of Muslims. You will be surprised at some of the names that feature in the list of countries that have banned this practice.
