Women’s Commission against triple-talaq
Saharanpur: Ms Nafisa Hussain, member of National Women’s Commission, has said the registration of nikah be made compulsory in view of the protection of women’s right. She also discarded the conventional mode of triple talaq which is against the tenets of Holy Qur'an. According to her, the present practice of triple-talaq is being employed by Muslim men to exploit women.
To minimise the possibility of second marriage, registration of nikah must be officially made compuslory. She described the present nikahnama as faulty. Speakng to the press persons, she referred to the registration of marriage under family law in Pakistan which was promulgated in 1961. Responding to a question pertaining to triple talaq she called it an atrocity on women. Prior notice of talaq is a must and divorced woman should accordingly be entitled for maintenance. Bihar and UP are the worst states which have highest rate of talaq (divorce), she said adding that special cell of NWC would check this evil.

They asked the government to be vigilant regarding anti-national activities within and outside the country.
