Sambhal (UP): A small group of Muslims living in this Uttar Pradesh district has banned the practice of 'triple talaq' at one go.

The 'Turk' group will also consider it a husband's fault if a case of 'triple talaq' at one go is reported before the panchayat.

 

However, it was suggested that in unavoidable cases, a man should utter talaq but only once and give time to his wife for things to resolve.

The decision was yesterday taken in a meeting of the 'Turk' group, which has about 50,000 members living in 50 villages of this Sambhal district.

Asrar Ahmed, who presided over the panchayat meeting, termed the practice of 'triple talaq' at one go as wrong and said the community has decided to do away with it.

"If it is extremely necessary, then a man should say talaq but only once and give a month's time to his wife," he said.

If someone divorces his wife by uttering talaq thrice, then the panchayat will punish him, Ahmed warned.

 

In a case of any dispute with his wife, a man should raise the matter with the panchayat which will try to resolve it.

The group had on April banned cow slaughter, and also the practice of demanding dowry and extravagant weddings.
