KOZHIKODE: “Triple talaq should be repealed. But going through the questionnaire prepared by the Law Commission to seek opinion on Uniform Civil Code (UCC) one may wonder about the absence of any query on the real talaq (Islamic talaq). There lies the trap,” said Jamaat-e-Islami ideologue and Madhyamam editor O. Abdurahman. “The UCC is a trap to stifle the Islamic talaq opportunity.”

He was speaking at a seminar, India, Religion, Secularism, organised by Women’s Welfare Association of Kerala (WWAF) here on Saturday. “There is lots of lacuna in the existing personal law. The members of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) are least interested in modifying the laws. The single thing that unites them is protesting UCC,” he said.

 

The UCC cannot be considered as a genuine step to address existing issues, he said, and the Law Commission was set up with pro-RSS people. “The present furore over the UCC is to satisfy the Hindu majority and scare the Muslim minority,” he claimed.

All India Islahi Movement general secretary Dr Hussain Madavoor rued that despite Quran insisting on women-centric laws, things are happening to the contrary. “Safety of women has got paramount importance in Islamic law. But still, women are at the receiving end. Practices such as triple talaq should be abolished,” he said.
