Bareilly: The Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat has announced that it will not issue a ‘ fatwa’ on the matter of triple talaq after Parliament recently passed a law making it a cognizable and non-bailable offence.
“After Parliament passed a law on triple talaq criminalizing it, we have decided that we will not issue any fatwa in such matters. Nothing in writing will be given by us as if someone approaches the police or law court we might land into complex intricacies of the law,” said Maulana Shahabuddin, official spokesperson of the Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat.
“However, we will give advice to those who seek it. The advice would be given in the light of the Holy Quran and Hadith,” he said.
The spokesperson also lauded and appreciated the new law and said it is in favour of Muslim women.
“This will definitely help in controlling the cases of triple talaq and would be helpful for Muslim women,” he said.
The Central government scored a major win today in the Upper House of the Parliament as the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019, got passed in the House on July 30.
The Bill, popularly called the Triple Talaq Bill was passed with the support of 99 votes while 84 opposed it. The Bill secures to protect Muslim women from the evil of Triple Talaq. It seeks to criminalize Muslim men who divorce their spouse by resorting to the instant divorce.
