“SAYING ‘TALAQ, TALAQ, TALAQ’ DOES NOT AMOUNT TO ANYTHING” : SAYS VICE PRESIDENT’s WIFE SALMA ANSARI

Joining the chorus of voices against Triple Talaq, Vice President Hamid Ansari’s wife Salma Ansari noted that saying talaq thrice does not amount to anything, and further called on Muslim women to read the Quran thoroughly instead of relying on clerics for their views on Islam. “There can be no ‘talaq’ just because someone says ‘talaq, talaq, talaq’ three times,” Ansari told reporters.  “Whatever the maulana said you think it’s true. You read the Quran in Arabic but never read its translations. Women should read the Quran, ponder on it, gain knowledge what the Shariat says and not just follow anyone blindly,” she added.  The Supreme Court is to hear multiple pleas challenging the validity of triple talaq, ‘nikah halala’ and polygamy practices among Muslims community on May 11 by a Constitution bench during the summer vacation.
