Muslim women won the hard fought battle to ban triple talaq after the Lok Sabha recently passed the bill, and Rajya Sabha soon will to make instant “triple talaq” illegal. Till now, Muslim women lived in constant fear of being divorced by a man anytime, over the phone, thru text messages, email or by post – just by saying TALAQ, TALAQ, TALAQ.
All this started when a divorced Muslim women and mother of two children approached the Indian courts (and fully supported by the present NDA government) which ruled this practice to be illegal. With confidence and awareness from this win, Muslim women are out to make polygamy illegal – a practice where a Muslim man can have 4 wives.
SURVEY say 90+% OF MUSLIM WOMEN OPPOSE THIS & OTHER PRACTICES. And while this is expected to be A MAJOR BATTLE, Muslim women are taking on the fight to have in place a well-defined Muslim law that criminalizes polygamy, unilateral divorce, child custody and child marriage. WOW!!!

Many brave women and men among the Muslim community and the public at large have fought to ban Triple Talaq. After decades of fighting, and with strong and unequivocal support of the current NDA government, the Supreme Court has banned the Triple Talaq practice and termed it as unconstitutional – and brought great relief to Muslim women. With so many former secular parties and governments even unwilling to discuss this issue, getting social justice within the Muslim community was hard especially due to the stiff resistance by the AIMPLB – the orthodox All India Muslim Personal Law Board. Most current politicians of the Congress Party, Samajwadi, CPM, CPI, JD(U), JD(S), Trinamool Congress, and on and on only wished to support the orthodoxy, even though the practice is banned in 20+ countries. Polygamy in the Muslim community is already being challenged, and some say a favorable judgement could be next with no prediction on timing. With these landmark development, India should move to a Uniform Civil Code that most countries have.

The current NDA government has evicted over 1,000 unauthorized residents or those who have overstayed which include many English media journalists and politicians from one of most luxurious and expensive government owned homes in the heart of Delhi. In many instances, like for journalists, they were given such accommodations for free or almost free, and as a quid-pro-quo, positive press was expected. However, the work is only nearly half done as more than 1,200 homes remain under unauthorized occupation.

Hindi is spoken by more people in the world then French, German or even Spanish. And contrary to what may not realize, Hindi is spoken in several countries including of course Nepal, Africas, Middle East, West Indies and others. Unfortunately Hindi is not yet an official UN language. During the last several decades nothing was done by India, but now with the new nationalist NDA government, India is going all out to get this recognition for Hindi, and Nepal also fully supporting. Incidentally, this government sustained efforts “have also ensured that the UN offers programmes on the UN Radio website in Hindi”.
