'Triple talaq' not the only issue affecting Muslims: JIH
The government is seemingly focused only on the issue of 'triple talaq' when it comes to Muslims, while ignoring their other concerns, the Jamaat-e- Islami Hind (JIH) alleged on Friday.
The JIH also announced a campaign to enlighten Muslims across the country on personal laws, contending that large sections of the community "lack knowledge" about the same. The religious body said it will hold the campaign from April 23 to May 7, aiming to reach out to five crore Muslims across the country.
"Such an atmosphere has been created as if it (triple talaq) is leading to injustice to women. Such a situation has emerged that it seems the government is focused on only this issue and that there is no other issue troubling Muslims," JIH chief Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari told reporters here.
Umari, also vice president of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), said that no one endorses 'triple talaq in one sitting', but stressed that there is no provision in the personal laws which leads to exploitation of women.
