Nearly 80% of divorced Indian Muslims are women, shows Census 2011 data

In India, for every divorced Muslim man, there are four divorced Muslim women, an IndiaSpend analysis of Census 2011 data shows. Across religious communities, except Sikhs, there are more divorced women than men. But the gender skew is particularly sharp among Muslims #India #Gujarat #Supreme Court #Marriage #CriticalPoint #Divorce #Women #Maharashtra #Census 2011 #Men #Muslim #Uniform Civil Code #Sikhs #Buddhists #christian #Rights #IndiaSpend #question #Polygamy #talaq #Flavia Agnes #Muslim Personal Law Board #divorce ratio #Bebaak Collective #National Law Commission

Triple talaq: Govt, courts doing their bit but why have 'liberals' abandoned Muslim women?

Why liberals should stop chasing the utopia of univeralism and full equality

Classical liberalism of the Enlightenment was a reaction to authoritarianism, arbitrary laws, overbearing communities, and rigid dogma; but communitarians today are reacting to the undue emphasis on the rights of the egocentric individual. #ConnectTheDots #Justice #Modernity #Liberalism #liberals #community #Rights #duties #tradition
