Muslim Rashtriya Manch To Launch Nationwide Signature Campaign Against Triple Talaq


The Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) has announced a signature campaign against ‘triple talaq’. This announcement was made during the two-day national executive meeting of the MRM which concluded in Agra on December 20, 2016.

The resolution passed by the MRM said that triple talaq was the path of the ‘satan’ and Muslims must give up it up and start treading the path of ‘khuda’.

The MRM would continue a nationwide signature campaign to garner popular support to its objective to end this practice of triple talaq.

Giving information on this resolution, MRM National Convener Mohd Afzal said that the issue of triple talaq dominated the proceedings of the national executive meeting held at Hotel Vaibhav Palace here in this historic city of Agra.

The meeting unanimously agreed that in no circumstances triple talaq was acceptable and massive public awareness drive would be undertaken on this issue. Besides, the MRM would help the children of such divorced Muslim women to make their future bright and shining.

Afzal said that efforts will be made to provide education, employment and security to ‘talaq-affected’ Muslim women and their children. For this, the amount collected through ‘jakat’ will be utilised through the MRM-sponsored ‘Shaheed Ashfaq Ullah Memorial Trust’, Afzal said.

The MRM had provided educational material to over 10,000 Muslim children. This time more students would be brought under the purview of this scheme, he added.

MRM Patron Indresh Kumar said that triple talaq is banned in 23 out of 48 Muslim countries in the world. We want to spread the message to those Muslims who had drifted away to come back on the right path, he added.

Tricolour to be unfurled in Madarsas on Jan 26: In another resolution, the MRM appealed to all the madrasas to hoist national tricolour on the Republic Day that falls on Jan 26.

The programs should be held at every madrasa, and Muslim areas remembering the heroes of the freedom struggle. The MRM first launched this movement in 2009 when the tricolour was unfurled at 58 madrasas. In 2016, the number went up to 3000 plus madrasas and 4000 plus Muslim areas where the national flag was hoisted on Independence day and Republic day.

MRM felt satisfaction over this increasing response and hopes that this number would further increase.
