Veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan on Monday criticised the practice of Triple Talaq by Muslim men saying it is against Quranic principle. The writer took to twitter to express his view on the raging debate over abolition of Triple Talaq, as demanded by many Muslim women.

“Triple Taalaaq arbitrarily in one sitting is against the Quranic principle. UCC is facing resistance from some clerics and might have been misunderstood by some muslims but, it does not interfere with Islam at all,” tweeted Khan.

 

 

“33 % muslims live as minorities in countries where there is no personal or islamic law. Yet they live in peace. The larger Q is Are muslims following islam at all? If you cant lead them dont mislead them,” added the writer.

 

The controversy arose after the Law Commission recently sought feedback from the public on whether the practice of triple talaq should be abolished and whether a uniform civil code be made optional.

A passionate debate has emerged over the government’s stand to oppose the practice of “triple talaq” with some leading women politicians seeking its abolition, even as Muslim bodies accused the ruling dispensation of waging a “war” on their personal law.

Though most of the women leaders avoided direct comments on the Centres affidavit or sought to dissect it, they were strongly critical of the prevalent practice of dissolving marriage through triple talaq.

    Such progressive views are to be welcomed coming from Salim Khan without taking in account mean and degraded comments about his personal life from a few.

          Triple Talaq must be banned, there is no place for such things in our religion. It's against women rights, which Allah also does not like such practice.

            India needs unique law ,we do not need to please any community on any basis of their self adopted doctrine. Law and order should prevail as consutional principle. Even Quran written by Muslim patriarch never mentioned triple talak policy
