Islam considers both man and woman to be two equally important wheels on which life moves. It has been clearly stated that men and women are equally respectable and responsible members of human fraternity. Islam regards marriage as a most sacred institution. Unfortunately the practice of Instant Triple Talaq by a negligibly small section of the people in the Muslim community made the life of a woman miserable. Nowhere in the Quran is mentioned about Instant Triple Talaq. Very recently the Loksabha hastily passed a bill criminalizing Talaq-e-biddat (Instant Triple Talaq) on 28th December 2017 and a number of people both Muslims as well as non-Muslims were quite outraged. The Quran mentions of husbands divorcing their wives and lays down rules regarding how to divorce, what treatment to give after the divorce, such as maintenance to the divorcee and the upbringing and custody of the children if any, etc. The Hadiths mention wives seeking divorce from husbands and also divorcing them and have laid down rules regarding it. The investigator conducted a Survey to know the “Opinion of Madarsa and School girls at Higher Secondary Level on the need for Instant Triple Talaq Bill to Empower Muslim Women”. Sample consisted of 200 girls from four schools and four madarsas at higher secondary level (100 Madarsa girls; 100 school girls) in Mau, U.P. Simple random sampling technique was adopted. The study was carried out with the following objectives: (i) to find out the opinion of madarsa girls at higher secondary level on the need for Instant Triple Talaq bill to empower muslim women. (ii) to find out the opinion of school girls at higher secondary level on the need for Instant Triple Talaq bill to empower muslim women.(iii) To find out the significant difference between opinion of higher secondary school girls and Madarsa girls on the need for Instant Triple Talaq Bill to empower Muslim women in MAU (U.P) An opinionnaire was developed on Instant Triple Talaq with 30 items in it. Reliability and validity of the tool was maintained. Findings of the study are discussed in detail in the research study. Due to the practice of Instant Triple Talaq by few, a Muslim woman lives under a constant feeling of uncertainty. Muslim community has survived many traumatic experiences being in minority. It is time that Rational and Enlightened elements from Muslim community should come forward to analyze the sensitive issues of Islam.
