Dear madhukar anand Ji
Many Muslim divorces his wife for the sake of divorce. Can you prove it ? I mean can you prove that they divorce their wife because they love to do it ?
Muslim can marry as many woman as he can. Why divorce a wife to marry another ? There must be some other more serious domestic cause behind this practice.
Besides it is shown that only a man has all right to divorce and not a Muslim woman has. But woman too can divorce man. Such divorce is called khulla or mubarat. Therefore Muslim woman is not so weak as they are portrayed.
The most important and overlooked fact is that only poor Muslim women are in trouble after Talaq, not rich or well to do women like the most famous shahbanu , the daughter of a lawyer.
Lastly, shahbanu got maintenance order in her favour even when Talaq exists. So still today Muslim women can be safe after divorce even Talaq exists.
First Of all You stated that triple talaq is good as it save one from lengthy judicial process, and afterwards you state that plenty of grounds are available even for muslim women under THE DISSOLUTION OF MUSLIM MARRIAGES ACT, 1939, but under that act the women has to go to court, whereas under triple talaq a man can divorce her on any ground without going to the court. There are plenty of cases in which a muslim man only on his whim & Fancy give divorce to his wife.
Claiming maintainable according to those acts are impossible for a Talaq woman is impossible because very few lawyer know about these acts and apply them properly in the court of law.
This article is skewed. If a muslim women wants talaq then the triple talaq can be great help for her. But that is the not case being discussed. It is the men who are using triple talaq to get rid of their wives. Further the process to claim maintenance from husband/parents/community etc. as per the acts quoted by the writer is next to impossible for women affected by Triple Talaq.
