Srinagar, 23, August: Maintaining that Islamic Law can never be changed, the Chairman PDF and MLA, Khansahib, Hakeem Mohammad Yaseen has expressed his reservations against the latest Supreme court verdict to strike down the Practice of Triple Talaq among Muslims.
In a statement issued today, Hakeem Yaseen said that revelations of Quran and Hadith are final pan- ultimate for a true Muslim which can in no case be tinkered with adding that the Supreme Court verdict on Triple Talaq is totally un-Islamic which also amounts to bizarre infringement on the fundamental right to religious freedom guaranteed by Article 25-26 of the Constitution of India. He said that every citizen of India has a right to practice and profess their religion peacefully but the way the Indian Judiciary has been invoked to infringe the religious rights was most concerning.
Hakeem Yaseen said that un- Islamic interpretation of Triple Talaq law and incorrect under- standing of the Muslim Personal Law has made the whole issue complicated adding that instead of invoking judiciary, it would be better to leave religious matters with the concerned scholars and religious Boards for their settlement.
Hakeem Yaseem said that Islam is the religion which stands for the protection of the rights of women to live with dignity and honour.” However, some black sheep are bringing bad name to the religion for their vested interests,” Hakeem Yaseen observed. (CNS)
