Bringing Muslim women to streets is against shariah: Shahi Imam

New Delhi: Shahi Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari once again criticised the protests march carried out by Muslim women in various parts of the country against Triple Talaq bill.

In a statement, Shahi Imam brought Muslim Personal Law to the witness box and asked it whether it is justifiable to bring Muslim women to streets. He strongly condemned the protests in which Muslim women are taking to the roads. He said such processions are against Islamic shariah and termed it an innovation.

Taking a dig at Muslim Personal Law Board, Shahi Imam said the people gave them time for decades to solve the triple talaq issue but the Board instead of solving the problem, entangled it. He said during the case of triple talaq in Supreme Court the Board had declared women ‘naqisul aql’ (faulty intellect), now it is trying to put the gun on women’s shoulder. He expressed fears that these processions by the Muslim women will give a chance to the communal forces to disrupt peace in the country.
