Triple talaq is the practice of Muslim men divorcing their wives by saying “talaq” three times. The constitution allows Muslims, the biggest minority in the country, to regulate marriages, divorces and inheritance through their own civil code.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017, which seeks to criminalise the practice of instant triple talaq was tabled in Lok Sabha, in a bid to secure womem’s rights and justice.

This is a brave move by Narendra Modi led BJP Government. Till today, no political party tried to secure equal rights for women, fearing loss of Muslim vote bank. But PM Narendra Modi has emerged as a Messiah for the Muslim Women. He has openly condemned the practise of triple talaq without being worried of the Muslim Vote Bank which is crucial for most of the political parties.

India being a country enriched with variety of cultures, religion, caste and diversity needs reforms. Irrespective of ones religion or caste, each individual in the country should have the same law applicable. But India is still suffering with the curse of Muslim Personal Law Board, which has been discriminating people based on their caste and religion. Though many political parties support the Muslim Personal Law Board for their benefit and minority appeasement but common man of Muslim Community prefers the Muslim Personal Law Board to be abolished.

With the first step towards Uniform Civil Code taken, at least for now the Muslim Women have been seen celebrating the move. Not only women but a large section of Men were also in favour of Triple Talaq Bill.

Looking at the celebrations all over India, there is no doubt that Muslim women will be Voting for PM Narendra Modi is 2019.
