What does 'triple talaq' imply in a court of law? #divorce #talaq

Does it need to be said before a Kazi/masjid or can the husband say it anywhere for it to be a valid divorce as per muslim law?

Divorce in Islam involves the pronouncement by husband 'talaq' (arabic for divorce) to his wife orally or written anywhere. If pronounced thrice (triple talaq), the divorce is permanent and the husband and wife cannot remarry without certain conditions being met (the wife getting re-married with someone and divorced again). A single pronouncement is sufficient to suspend the marriage, but after this the husband can cancel divorce within iddah (3 monthly periods(of the wife) or until the end of pregnancy).

A wife cannot initiate the divorce unless her husband agrees to it or she wins the approval of a qadi (majistrate / judge of a Shariah court), who can divorce the marriage or divorce the couple.

The Muslim Personal Law or the Shariah Law applies to followers of Islam in India with respect to matters of family and marriage. 

After divorce, Quran specifies responsibilities regarding child maintenance in 223rd verse of Second Chapter. Quran also prohibits interventions from the previous husband in the divorced woman's life in 232nd verse of second chapter. 

In Islam, a mahr is a mandatory payment, in the form of money or possessions paid or promised to pay by the groom, or by groom's father, to the bride at the time of marriage, that legally becomes her property. After divorce, based on the length of the marriage, carnal life of the couple, children and who initiates divorce (husband or wife), the wife is entitled to get either full or half mahr or nill sometimes. However, unlike most Western laws where the couple split assets earned during the marriage, Islamic law does not entitle the wife to a split of the husband's assets at divorce.

The All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a ban on the practices of triple talaq, polygamy and nikah halala.

The Supreme Court of India banned Jallikattu and bull race in Maharastra in the year 2014 citing Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act-1960, which prohibits the use of animals for entertainment or display. 


Animal activists and PETA India have protested against the practice since 2004. In 2009, the Tamil Nadu government passed the Tamil Nadu Regulation of Jallikattu Act of 2009 - a state law that allowed Jallikattu under some conditions. In 2011, the environment ministry passed an order that declared sports involving animals like Jallikattu illegal.

In 2014, the Supreme Court struck down the Tamil Nadu Regulation of Jallikattu Act of 2009 stating that it violates the national law. “Even bulls have rights against torture,” the court had said. The court also upheld the 2011 environment ministry order. The court order was based on a report by the Animal Welfare Board of India, which found that bulls were bitten, stabbed and pulled by the tail during the taming sport. “Being dumb and helpless, they suffer in silence. We notice that the situation is the same in Maharashtra too,” the court said.

Recent Developments

On 7 January, 2016, the Government of India issued a notification that had re-introduced bulls into the fold of 'performing animals' under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act of 1960, thus giving an indirect nod to jallikattu, which the court had described as an act of "inherent cruelty". However, on 14 January, 2016, the Supreme Court of India upheld its ban on the event, leading to protests all over Tamil Nadu. On November 16, 2016, the Bench dismissed the State government's review petition against the 2014 judgment, saying the very act of "taming a bull" was counter to the concept of welfare of the animal under the 1960 Act.

After the apex court passed its order, several high courts also banned animal sacrifice and sports across the states. Allowing Jallikattu would have spurred other courts – from Punjab and Uttar Pradesh to Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Assam and Maharashtra – to allow cruelty to animals in the name of tradition.

With the onset of Pongal (the harvest festival in Tamil Nadu - mid-january 2017), the jallikattu issue has again propped up in the mainstream. While the Central government has declined to pass an ordinance to allow Jallikattu, and the SC refusing to rush the judgement on the January 2016 central government notification there is open defiance in some districts in Tamil Nadu where Jallikattu is organised over the Pongal weekend (14-16).

Are there different laws for commercial and residential leasing? #property #rent

A friend suggested that I shouldn't let my house on rent for a period more than 11 months via agreement as it would come under strict rental laws which could affect me in future. So I have been renewing 11 months contract if required. Now I want to rent out a commercial space. How should I go about it? I would also need help in drafting the contract. The property is in TamilNadu.

Basically you are required to know whether the case is still pending or it is already closed. 

You can enquire the things from the concerned jurisdiction court by showing your crime number.

If it is not closed then you need to take help of any local advocate to assist you for closing the said case at the earliest.
