Hundreds of burka-clad Muslim women gathered at Kasturchand Park, Nagpur, on Tuesday afternoon as they participated in a silent rally to register their protest against Triple Talaq Bill, which in their opinion is against Muslim Sharia Law. The rally was organised by AIMPLB (All India Muslim Personal Law Board).

Addressing the rally, Professor Munesa Bushra Abidi from Mumbai and Aalema Arjuman Sahiba from Pusad called the bill unconstitutional and put forward the demands of the board.

Here are some points, which were discussed by the speakers:

? The status and responsibility of women in Islam.

? Women Empowerment mission by AIMPLB related to personal laws awareness.

? Non-acceptance by the community with regards of interference in Sharia laws.

? Proper process of Talaq between a husband and a wife as per Islam.

? Need of increase in social welfare involvement of Muslim women through reformation activities and awareness on personal laws.

? Rights and Duties towards families and to practice Sharia prescribed for the wellbeing of women as per Islam.

The speakers appealed Indian Muslim women and women from other religions and faiths to not believe baseless accusations being laid down by anti-human forces and anti-Islamic communal forces. They further appealed Muslim women to empower themselves like women companions (Sahabiyahs) through character, education and become messengers of peace and prosperity for the development of society and India, thus promoting the true face of Islamic values taught by Quran and prophetic teachings.

To put their point across against the Triple Talaq Bill, the speakers, interestingly, shared statistics of status of widows from other communities. Post the rally, a delegation met district collector and submitted a demand of abolishing triple talaq and to not interfere with the Muslim Sharia laws.

Narhari Zirwal – the Deputy Speaker in Maharashtra Assembly – on Saturday (June 25) issued disqualification notice to 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs.

The MLAs, who are being led by Eknath Shinde, are currently staying at Guwahati in Assam. These MLAs are supposed to file their written replies by 5:30 pm on Monday (June 27).  If the MLAs are disqualified, Shinde will lose his legislator’s post and that, crucially, will see his revolt fail.

The Shiv Sena had moved the original notice against 12 rebel MLAs, including Shinde, late Thursday evening and added another four names on Friday.

Even as Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena is seeking disqualification of its rebel MLAs from the assembly, the rebel MLAs led by Eknath Shinde on Saturday (June 25) named their group as ‘Shiv Sena Balasaheb.’

Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Deepak Keserkar said: “Our group will be called Shiv Sena Balasaheb. We will not merge with any party.” Kesarkar has also hinted at a possible alliance with the BJP. “We have only two options remaining in Maharashtra; to go with either the NCP-Congress or the BJP, otherwise the government cannot be formed. However, the question of allying with the BJP will be decided by Eknath Shinde. Whatever decision he takes, we will support it.”

Meanwhile Maharashtra Congress leader Ashok Chavan said: “Until it gets legal authorisation from the speaker, such type of groups will not be authorized.”
