Triple Talaq: HC ruling valid, but hyped and smacks of politics, says Flavia Agnes

The Allahabad High Court on Thursday called triple talaq or the practice of Muslim men getting an instant divorce by saying the word 'talaq' three times as 'unconstitutional'. The high court said that 'no personal law board is above the Constitution', in effect reiterating the Centre's stand in the Supreme Court recently. #InMyOpinion #Islamophobia #High Court #Muslim #Allahabad #triple talaq #Guwahati High Court #Flavia Agnes

Jakarta governor slips in polls after hardline Islamist protest | Reuters

By Bernadette Christina Munthe | JAKARTA JAKARTA The governor of Indonesia's capital Jakarta, the first ethnic Chinese and Christian in the job, is losing support in his bid for reelection as allegations that he insulted the Koran increasingly put off Muslim voters.An opinion poll published on Thursday showed support for Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, also known as "Ahok", plunged from 60 percent in March to 25 percent in the latest survey. Over 100,000 Muslims marched through Jakarta last week to demand his resignation and urge voters not to re-elect him in February, raising concerns over the rise of hardline Islamists in the world's largest Muslim-majority nation.Last month's survey by pollster Lingkaran Survei Indonesia, taken before the protest, showed him at 31 percent support."The controversy over the comments on the Koran is a factor affecting his electability and resistance is rising against a non-Muslim leader," said Adjie Alfaraby of LSI. The vast majority of Indonesians practice a moderate form of Islam and faith is not often a determining factor in elections, especially in a cosmopolitan city like Jakarta. #United States #Islam #Middle East #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Muslim #article
