Dangerous trend: Now a fatwa by the Head of an NGONowadays all of us know that five ladies knocked the door of the Supreme Court requesting ban on 'triple talaq' system. After the judgment of the Hon'ble Apex Court on the issue, these ladies have to face many problems in their families, society and in their community. Only last week I heard that the so-called Shariat court issued a fatwa against some of the ladies.
Today I have come to know something more bizarre. Yesterday, the head of a Bareilly NGO allegedly announced cash rewards for anyone who stones and shaves the heads of two women (Nida Khan and Farhat Naqvi) who led campaigns against triple talaq.
The Governments (both Central and State) must not ignore the issue anymore. These fatwas, etc. should be given importance. Proper arrangements must be made to protect these ladies. At the same time, the so-called head of the NGO must be put behind the bar. The activities of this NGO must be scrutinized along with its funding. If necessary, the NGO must be disbanded.
Some pro-active action on the part of the Government is very much necessary.
