New Delhi: Seeking a ban on ‘triple talaq’, over 50,000 Muslim people signed a petition which was spearheaded by Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan (BMMA).

The BMMA has urged the National Commission for Women to intervene and end this ‘un-Quranic practice’.

  • The petition was signed in different states including Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, MP, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Odisha, West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Kerala and UP, said BMMA co-founder Zakia Soman.
  • Many more signatures will be collected in the coming days.
  • A recent BMMA study found that 92% of Muslim women supported an end to this practice.
  • BMMA has been advocating reconciliation and mediation where the divorce process is carried out over a period of 90 days.
