Congress advises Muslim community to evaluate misuse of Triple Talaq

New Delhi: After a Triple Talaq victim wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealing to ban its practice, the Congress Party on Thursday advised the Muslim community to evaluate the misuse of the system.

Congress leader K. Rahman Khan said that firstly if the lady was pregnant then the Talaq would not be considered valid as per Islam divorce law.

“I would like to advice the community to evaluate such issues, specially on the misuse of the Triple Talaq. The Muslim personal law board should take this issue into notice and strict action should be taken against the one misusing it,” Khan told ANI.

He also advised the lady to appeal in the Shariat court.

Earlier, raising her voice against the Triple Talaq, a pregnant woman, Shagufta Shah, wrote to Prime Minister Modi urging him to ban the controversial practice, after she was abandoned by her husband.

She has also sent a copy of the letter to Adityanath.

The apex court has been hearing a number of petitions against Triple Talaq demanding banning of the same. (ANI)
