Triple Talaq bill is interference in Shariah: Shahi Imam Masjid Fatehpuri

New Delhi: Shahi Imam of Masjid Fatehpuri, Delhi Maulana Mufti Mohammed Mukarram Ahmed said that triple talaq bill is interference in Shariah. He told this during his Friday sermon yesterday. He added though the constitution guarantees freedom of religion, tabling the bill in the parliament by a particular section on the pretext of providing justice to women is against the intention of the constitution. He said protection of women is a national issue hence the government should be concerned about all the women and should not intervene into the religious freedom of a particular community.

Maulana Mufti Mukarram strongly condemned the provocation and venom spewing of VHP workers on Parade Ground in Jammu recently. He said one of the leaders even said ‘every Hindu should produce 5 children and each child should be given weapon in his hand’. He further said baseless allegations were made against Kashmiris and Muslims in the Dharma Sabha which is condemnable and action must be taken against it.
