Muslim women dare the ‘mullahs’ with own code  

Posted  on 16 March 2008 23:38
Daring the ulemas and orthodox Muslims, the All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board in its “Shariat Nikahnama” released on Sunday, has come up with a host of measures that ensures that Muslim women get their right.

Not only does it recognise the right of women to seek divorce (khula) and separation, it ensures financial settlement with an eye to the welfare of the woman and her children, advises registration of marriages and forbids forceful marriages.

The new code also rejects talaq through SMS, e-mail, phone and video conferencing. Talaq on provocation will not be considered either. According to it, talaq to be valid should be spread over three months to give the couple ample time to reconsider the issue.

“We are not scared of the mullah, but Allah,” said Shaista Amber, chairperson of the AIMWPLB. “The mullahs will never come to the rescue of destitute women. Why should the Muslim woman be scared to seek khula when this right has been provided to her by Allah?”

New Delhi, Mar 16 (ANI): Cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Robin Uthappa walked the ramp for country’s ace designer Raghavendra Rathore on the fourth day of the Wills India Fashion Week.

Yuvraj Singh appeared at ease in a stylised long jacket, as he walked the ramp amidst a volley of whistling and cheering from the audience.

Simple cuts with lots of bluing in gold and silver comprised Rathore’s collection for the autumn-winter season.

Models walked the ramp in formals and semi-formals for both men and women with western styles ruling the most part of the collection.

Deviating from the western was the designer duo of Mona Pali, as they turned to traditional Indian embroideries and artwork in their collection.

Silhouettes infused Indian drapes and western styles creating indo-western fusion as the main stay of the collection
