The one of oldest civilization(Indus valley civilization) of the world that was used to worship woman, is now facing the severe problem on women`s dignity in the form of Triple Talaq. A land that has been famous for its religious diversity, is now in the fist of religious rigidness. The minority women in India are facing the problem of Triple Talq.
Triple Talaq is a process in muslim community in which a husband can give divorce to his wife just by chanting word “Talaq” three times. This is something like their marriage ritual where husband gives his accent three times in the process of accepting a girl as his wife. But these two process are slightly different as woman`s accent does not matter in the first one but it matters in the second one.
why woman have been considered inferior in the “Talaq” process ?
Is it so easy for one to divorce one`s wife just by chanting a word simply for three times without any intervention of executive or judiciary?
Does law allows a man to do this or this is something which is practiced in the religion everywhere all over the globe?
The people who practice it claim that it is mentioned in holy Koran. But there is nothing in the Koran that allows a man to play with a woman`s dignity. Even no religion has such kind of things mentioned in their holy books. Some people claim for polygamy further giving many examples including prophet Mohommad himself.
But it is different in today`s perspective. Polygamy & Triple Talaq are two different issues.
Such kind of practices against women are there in other religions also. One illustration can be taken as “Sati Pratha” in Hindu religion in which a wife needed to be jumped in funeral pyre alongwith her dead husband. Though this bad practice is fully eliminated, but still many such practices exist in our society behind the curtain.
There is no uniformity in the practices of rituals in the society thatswhy there is an urge of an uniform civil code, mentioned in the article 44 of the indian constitution.
women are not just the toys of hands of the rituals that have been made by the so called holy priests. There should be equality in marriage rituals too. Executive & judicial intrusion in social rituals ( marriage, divorce, polygamy etc) is the need of the hour.
Triple Talaq has developed a negative mindset among the people. An revolutionary attitudinal change in the society can eliminate the devil.
After all women are the substitute to life & pride to one`s place.
Is it not our duty to save our pride?
