‘Iddat Must For Convert Marrying Muslim Man’: Sindh High Court

 

 

Z Ali

October 01, 2022

HYDRABAD:

In a seminal judgment, the Sindh High Court (SHC) Hyderabad Bench on Friday declared it mandatory for a non-Muslim woman remarrying a Muslim man after converting to Islam to observe the 90-day Iddat period.

The judgment, authored by Justice Muhammad Iqbal Kalhoro of SHC's Hyderabad bench, also ruled that a woman convert will have to invite her non-Muslim husband to embrace Islam and file a petition for dissolution of marriage in a family court.

The verdict was given on a petition filed by Lalu Tamachi whose wife Nagina, who bore him four children, converted to Islam and tied the nuptial knot with Mazhar Hussain Khan. "Iddat is necessary after the dissolution of marriage of any character," the bench ruled.

The order explained that the twin causes of Iddat were to offer an opportunity to a non-Muslim husband of a woman convert to embrace Islam and also to see if the woman is or becomes pregnant from her former husband.

"If the husband in response to [the] offer embraces Islam within the period of Iddat, the marriage shall continue. But if he remains non-Muslim even after [the] expiry of Iddat, [then] the court may pass a decree of termination of the marriage," reads the judgment.

The woman convert is supposed to file a petition in a family court which will summon her husband to give him the opportunity to change his religion following in the footsteps of his wife. The court will wait till the expiry of Iddat before decreeing the termination.

The court referred to a 1997 litigation in the Lahore High Court in which the petitioner, a Christian by faith, had challenge the marriage of his wife with a Muslim man. The LHC had engaged three amicus curiae, including Maulana Abdul Qadir Azad, Muhamamd Ismail Qureshi and Advocate Abid Hassan Minto. The emphasis was laid on the question of observing iddat.

Azad replied to the court that a woman after embracing Islam should invite her husband to follow suit. The marriage will become dissolved if the husband refuses. Subsequently, the woman will observe a mandatory 90-day iddat before remarrying a Muslim man.

Qureshi wrote to the LHC that a marriage solemnized during iddat would be considered Fasid [irregular] but not Batil [void]. The irregular marriage would have to be regularized through a fresh Nikah after completion of Iddat.

Minto while partly reiterating the same stance of Azad said the dissolution of marriage should take place before a judge. "Iddat is imposed to ascertain whether the woman is pregnant from her previous husband so as to avoid confusion of parentage," Minto wrote. He doubted that any criminal liability arose from Fasid [irregular] marriage.

On the basis of input from those jurists as well as similar previous cases, the LHC concluded its order with three points. The first pertained to informing the husband about conversion of faith followed by inviting him to accept Islam. The third is mandatory observance of iddat for three months or 90 days.

The LHC had also referred to Syed Ameer Ali's book Muhammadan Law in which he has stated that in a non-Islamic country, a non-Muslim woman converting to Islam should wait for three menstrual cycles before her marriage could be dissolved.

The court directed the SHC's Registrar to circulate the order to the judges of all the district and civil courts besides sending it to the Sindh cabinet which may consider appropriate legislation.

In the instant case, Nagina left house of her husband on January 15, 2022, and two days later on January 17 she converted to Islam. The SHC noted that there is no evidence to suggest that she had apprised her former husband of her conversion plan.

The bench also observed that the affidavit submitted by the woman in which she claims inviting her husband to Islam was written in English. Yet, neither the woman nor her ex-husband can read or understand English. She appeared clueless about the content of the affidavit when she was asked in the courtroom.

"There is no evidence that she ever happened to meet with the petitioner [Tamachi] and made him offer [to embrace Islam]," the judge stated. The woman also did not observe iddat.

The bench then raised the question about the status of Murk's conversion and marriage because she failed to comply with all procedures laid down in the law. However, the judge quickly referred to the LHC's order and opinion of the amicus curiae which did not declare any criminal liability and offered the salutation of a fresh nikkah after completion of iddat.

"Unfortunately, the recommendations of the apex court have fallen on deaf ears and so far no legislation on such lines has ever been considered," reads the judgment. Nevertheless, the bench said, the Sindh Assembly has taken the first step in this regard by passing the Hindu Marriage Act, 2018. Section 11 of the Act provides for termination of marriage by a family court. Yet many questions remain unanswered in the Act, the court said.

Hollywood Actor: I'd Get Oscar Nomination 'If I Played A Radical Islamic Paedophile Terrorist'

By John Solomon

October 1, 2022

Kevin Sorbo won worldwide fame as a young actor playing Hercules, but today as one of Hollywood's few openly conservative actors he laments the industry's cancel culture and its embrace of dark, radical and negative movies.

"It's unfortunate," he told the "Just the News, Not Noise" television show in a recent interview. "I always joke that if I played a radical Islamic paedophile terrorist in a movie, I get nominated for an Academy Award. And that's really a weird world we're in right now."

As Hollywood has drifted further left and away from many mainstream families, Sorbo has created his own studio committed to positive, family-friendly movies. He said the industry is missing a huge market of 80 million fans by refusing to make more upbeat content.

"They're afraid — 'Oh my gosh, we'll get a backlash from within the Hollywood elites if we do a movie that's got a positive message,'" he said.

"It's so strange to me," he added. "I wish they could answer that question: Why? What are you afraid of those 80 million homes out there that want that.

"You can poke fun and laugh at all the stupid Christians for wanting movies with a good message in there. It's so weird. But this is a battle that we have going on right now."

Conservatives in Hollywood have faced decades of retribution and cancel culture, sometimes for the smallest of things. Comedian and actor Tim Allen got backlash last month for making a simple joke about Joe Biden not knowing the length of the "60 Minutes" news magazine.

"We do need more. I have actors come up to me on the set over the last five, six years saying, 'Hey, thank you for being a voice for us,'" he recalled. "And I said, 'Well, why don't you be a voice for yourself?' But they're all afraid to come out of that conservative closet because we're the ones getting bashed and attacked."

"I still have a career," he said. "Am I doing big budget TV shows or movies anymore? Nope. But that's fine. I'm doing the movies that I want to do."

Muslim Family To Be Among First To Get Puja Prasad In Assam On The Auspicious Occasion Of Maha Ashthami

Oct 2, 2022

GUWAHATI: In a glowing example of communal harmony, the centuries-old Devi Doul (Durga temple) in Assam’s Sivasagar district will begin the festivities with the distribution of Prasad to an Ahom and a Muslim family on the auspicious occasion of Maha Ashthami, resuming the age-old practice after two years of Covid.

The Muslim family of Doullahs that will partake of the prasad used to beat the traditional drums (nagara) in the temple once upon a time, while the Borpatragohain family represented the Ahom community.

Basanta Gogoi, secretary of the temple development board, said, “It gives us immense pleasure to revive the medieval-era tradition of communal harmony that the Covid-19 pandemic had put the brakes on. Though the celebrations were allowed albeit with some restrictions last year, we had to do away with prasad distribution to the two renowned families of Sivasagar altogether in 2020.”

This practice is believed to have been first adopted during the reign of Ahom kings in the medieval period. The temple management said though there is no written history of this tradition, there are records with the temple management that read the “prasad of harmony” was received by the family of Konseng Borpatragohain, the first Borpatragohain- one of the three great Gohains (counsellors) in the Ahom kingdom created by Suhungmung Dihingia Raja in the year 1527.

Along with her family, Tosmia Doullah, daughter of Monirud Doullah, who died of Covid last year, will go to the Devi Doul ceremony this Maha Ashtami to revive the tradition. Tosmia is enthusiastic as she will go down in history as the one who bore witness to the revival of the tradition. “My father’s demise was unexpected and came as a shock to us. Being the seniormost member of the family, I will have to take the lead role in the ceremony to uphold the tradition,” Tosmia told TOI from Dhai Ali in Sivasagar.

However, Jiten Borpatragohain, a retired college teacher, who is from the 18th generation of Konseng Borpatragohain, said the Doullahs joined them later, which marked the beginning of a new chapter of harmony in Sivasagar. Known for Hindu-Muslim unity, Sivasagar remained undisturbed even in the trouble-torn times of Babri demolition.

“During the rule of Siva Singha, Ahoms endorsed Hindu religion in large numbers. But our Borpatragohain family was a follower of Shakta cult and devoted to Devi Durga. Our ancestors used to get prasad at home on Ashtami since the early 18 th century, mostly in the form of a goat sacrificed to the goddess on Maha Ashtami,” he said.

Iran Protests Mahsa Amini’s Death: Majority Of People Reject Compulsory Hijab And An Islamic Regime, Surveys Find

October 2, 2022

A young woman’s death in custody in Iran on September 16 has sparked nationwide protests. Mahsa Amini’s fatal injuries resulted from an arrest and beating by the country’s hijab police, which enforces the mandatory and “correct” way of wearing the hijab. The protesters have caught the world’s attention by chanting what sounds like a revolutionary slogan: “zan, zendegi, azadi” (woman, life, freedom). Other slogans target the regime: “An Islamic Republic, we don’t want, we don’t want.”

Despite the scale of recurring protests in Iran, some people still cast doubt on the idea that these events have mass support in this vast and populous country. So, how extensive is Iranians’ discontent with the mandatory hijab and the regime that imposed it after the 1979 Islamic Revolution?

Between 2019 and 2022, we at GAMAAN – Group for Analysing and Measuring Attitudes in Iran – conducted innovative online surveys that ensured anonymity to potentially fearful respondents. The process has been a cat-and-mouse game, with the regime blocking a major survey application in Iran and targeting at least one of our surveys with bots, not to mention the challenge of gathering data from pro-regime respondents.

Our surveys went viral, resulting in raw samples ranging from 20,000 to more than 100,000 respondents. After weighting the data for five demographic variables and one political variable, we could replicate external data such as employment rates, household income distribution levels, and the languages people spoke at home.

Moreover, we found a match between our data and other institutes’ data (gathered through conventional survey methods) for politically non-sensitive questions, while also finding a large discrepancy on politically sensitive topics such as religion (see the tables in the 2020 survey report on religion, the 2021 report on international relations, and the 2022 report on political systems). The success of these tests indicates, to put it simply, that our survey results show what Iranians of all social layers, including people who support the regime, really think.

Our 2020 religion survey confirmed that a secular shift is taking place in Iran. While more than 90% of respondents said they had been raised in a believing and/or practising religious family, around half indicated they had become non-religious in their lifetime. Meanwhile 72% explicitly opposed the mandatory hijab.

When we broke down the data, we found – as we expected – that women, the youngest generation and university-educated people living in cities were the groups most opposed to the mandatory hijab. We also found that the majority of men, people living in rural areas, people over the age of 50, and those without higher education opposed the mandatory hijab. This opposition is, then, indeed nationwide.

Conflicts over the mandatory hijab were divided primarily along political and religious lines. Around half of those who said they believed in the practice of wearing the hijab for religious reasons were also explicitly in favour of using state power to enforce it, while only around a quarter explicitly rejected enforcement.

Iranian women who identify as practising Muslims have also expressed anguish over the arbitrary and extreme violence committed by the Islamic Republic against women. While some try to maintain a delicate balance between religious belief and politics, many will continue to abandon religion altogether. The latter do not only criticise the Islamic government but also Islamic ideals of piety in themselves: while 23% of the target population affirmed the religious role the hijab played for them in 2020, 57% said they did not have a religious belief in wearing the headscarf.

These secular attitudes help explain why women are publicly burning the hijab and chanting against the very idea of an Islamic regime. For them, the mandatory hijab is the Islamic Republic’s Berlin Wall.

This is backed up by our 2022 survey on political systems, which showed that about 67% of the target population of literate adults are against a political system governed by religious law. Again, women, the youngest generation, and university-educated people living in cities are the groups most opposed to the idea of an Islamic regime. The highest level of support for an Islamic regime, at 35%, was expressed by people living in rural areas.

Our longitudinal data on another question about political orientations indicates that about 63% of the population are proponents of either regime change or some sort of transition from the Islamic Republic. Only 8% supported “reforms” within the framework of the Islamic Republic.

Given these numbers, it shouldn’t surprise commentators that among the most heard chants all over the country are calls for the Islamic Republic to be brought down. The videos that ordinary Iranians are desperately trying to show to the world are thus reflective of the social reality in the country. The facts are that the majority opposes the compulsory hijab and that people of all social layers do not want an Islamic Republic.The Conversation

London Muslims Slam Anti-Revolution Moves in Iran, Desecration Of Islamic Values

Oct 2, 2022

The Muslim protesters, from different nations and ethnic groups, were mainly youth, who gathered outside the UK Islamic Centre in a spontaneous move.

They carried placards condemning rioters and enemies of the revolution, waving flags reading the name of the third Shia Imam, Imam Hossein (AS).

It came a week after a group of people opposed to the revolution gathered outside the Iranian Embassy in London, attacking Arbaeen mourners and removing Muslim women’s veils.

Massoud Shajareh, Head of Human Rights Islamic Commission, told IRNA that the provocations by these people are Islamophobic, and that they relate any Muslim person to Iran.

That’s while, he added, the protesters taking part in the Saturday demonstration outside the UK Islamic Centre say that the rioters have no right to show violence and disrespect for the religious ideals under the pretext of the latest developments in Iran.

After the last week riots outside the Iranian Embassy, London Police released images of 13 people involved in the unrest.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Sunday approved the pre-arrest bail of PTI chief Imran Khan, a day after an arrest warrant was issued for the former premier in connection with his controversial remarks against Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADSJ) Zeba Chaudhry and other officials at an August 20 public rally.

According to Islamabad police, after the Islamabad High Court struck down terror charges from the case registered against Imran, the case was transferred to a sessions court and the PTI chief had not obtained his bail from there.

The police also said he had also not attended the last court hearing on the matter and the warrant was issued to ensure his presence.

PTI meets to finalise plan for long march

Ikram Junaidi

October 2, 2022

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday held a meeting to finalise arrangements for its much-hyped long march amid reports that the former ruling party is likely to announce the date for the protest in a week.

The meeting, chaired by party chief Imran Khan, discussed the possibility of the use of violence by the government to stop the protest and mulled over strategies as to how to deal with possible “brutality and tyranny” similar to the May 25 events.

Sources said once the date of the march would be announced, a number of strategies would be implemented simultaneously. It was also decided that the party chapters in the federal capital and nearby areas will be activated for the protest, as activists from these areas could stay for longer periods in the city and spend more time in the protest.

October 01, 2022

OTTAWA, ONTARIO —

Several thousand people marched in Montreal and other Canadian cities Saturday in solidarity with protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini in the custody of Iran's notorious morality police.

A wave of street violence has rocked Iran since Amini, 22, died days after her arrest for allegedly failing to observe the Islamic republic's strict dress code for women.

Protests were held across the country for a 15th consecutive night on Friday despite a bloody crackdown that rights groups said has left more than 75 people dead.

Brooklyn Museum's entire floor devoted to arts of Asia and the Islamic World is now open

02-10-2022

BROOKLYN, NY.- The new home for the Arts of Asia and the Islamic World creates cross-cultural dialogue among collection areas and highlights diverse aesthetic, creative, social, and intellectual accomplishments across Asia and around the Mediterranean, from ancient times to the present day. These newly renovated galleries on the Museum’s second floor feature Asian and Islamic artworks in bespoke casework enhanced by state-of-the-art lighting. The renovations create greater flexibility, facilitating the rotation of installation objects to showcase a wider range of materials.

Arts of South Asia and Arts of the Islamic World will be the final galleries on the floor to reopen, marking the first time in ten years that artworks from across these collections—which boast more than seventeen thousand objects, including sculptures, textiles, paintings, ceramics, drawings, prints, carvings, decorative arts, metalwork, and other artifacts—will be on view. Previous openings include the Arts of Korea gallery in 2017, the Arts of China and Arts of Japan galleries in 2019, the Arts of Southeast Asia gallery in 2021, and the Arts of Buddhism and Arts of the Himalayas galleries in 2022.

“We are thrilled for the long-awaited conclusion of this project,” says Joan Cummins, Lisa and Bernard Selz Senior Curator, Asian Art, Brooklyn Museum. “The new installation encourages a rich and nuanced understanding of the collections’ diversity and encyclopedic scope, ranging from Japanese guardian figures to Indian miniature paintings, from Chinese cloisonné altarpieces to Korean celadons. All objects were chosen and interpreted with an eye toward deepening understandings of the many facets of Asian cultural heritage. Future rotations of artworks will reintroduce different elements of our fantastic collections to our visitors.”

American Prisoners Are Released From Venezuela and Iran

By Michael D. Shear

Oct. 1, 2022

WASHINGTON — Seven Americans who had been held captive in Venezuela for years were on their way home Saturday after President Biden agreed to grant clemency to two nephews of Cilia Flores, Venezuela’s first lady, officials said. The men had been sentenced in 2017 to 18 years in prison for conspiring to smuggle cocaine into the United States.

At the same time, Iran on Saturday released Siamak Namazi, a 51-year-old dual-national Iranian American businessman who had been jailed since 2015, on a temporary furlough and lifted the travel ban on his father, Baquer Namazi, an 85-year-old former official for the United Nations, according to the family’s lawyer.

Together, the announcements regarding Venezuela and Iran represented one of the largest mass releases of Americans detained abroad in recent memory, though one American official said the timing was coincidental. For Mr. Biden, freeing seven Americans, some of whom had been held for years in Venezuelan prison, was part of an aggressive push to accelerate such homecomings — an effort that has drawn some criticism for the president’s willingness to exchange convicted criminals.

Row Erupts as 'Vande Mataram' to Replace 'Hello' in Maha Govt Offices from Today

By: Jessica Jani

OCTOBER 02, 2022

The Maharashtra government on Saturday issued a Government Resolution (GR) directing government employees to answer the phone with “Vande Mataram" instead of “hello" when receiving calls from citizens or government officials, and also while addressing staff, speaking to citizens or making public announcements.

The campaign will be launched across the state on Sunday, October 2, the occasion of the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi and as part of Amrit Mahotsav. Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Cultural Affairs Minister Sudhir Mungatiwar will launch the campaign from Wardha on Sunday at 10:30am.

The campaign roused controversy as Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi on Sunday said that the state had always had a ‘Jai Maharashtra’ greeting since Bal Thackeray’s time, and this new campaign was only introduced to polarise Muslims, who he said cannot say ‘Vande Mataram’ as it is against their faith.

Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrollah Defends Islamic Republic as Khamenei Stays Silent

OCTOBER 1, 2022

Even as the two-week silence of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in the face of Iran’s ongoing protests, has caused widespread speculation, the leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah has come out in support of the Islamic Republic.

Referring to the September 16 death of Mahsa Amini, after being arrested by the morality police, Hassan Nasrollah said in this speech: "The death of an Iranian lady in a situation whose dimensions are still unclear became controversial. The West began to get involved, while more than 50 people were killed elsewhere."

He went on to criticize reports on the recent protests and added: "Dozens, if not hundreds, of television and cyber accounts started to provoke the people of Iran, because Iran, which is the heart of the resistance axis [against the West] is the main target."

CIA's ‘weak’ websites led to capture execution of assets in Iran, China

Oct 01, 2022

A spokesperson of the CIA said the agency takes it obligations to protect the people work with it extremely seriously, and many of them do bravely at personal risk. The notion that the agency would not work as hard as possible to safeguard them is false, the spokesperson added.

A flaw in the ‘covert’ websites of the Central Intelligence Agency compromised the US spy agency's assets in countries like Iran and China, according to a report by security researchers. The researchers claimed that the internet security flaw led to the deaths of more than two dozen US assets in China in 2011 and 2012 while other assets in Iran were either executed or imprisoned by the regime.

The research carried out by security experts at the University of Toronto's Citizen Lab also said that the flaw could have been detected by an amateur sleuth, British website The Guardian reported. The security experts began probe following a tip from a Reuters journalist.

By EMANUEL FABIAN

02-10-2022

The Shin Bet security agency announced Sunday that in recent weeks six Arab men were arrested for alleged affiliation with the Islamic State terror group and plans to commit terror attacks.

According to the Shin Bet, the men, all from Nazareth in northern Israel, sought to attack a Muslim school in the Arab-majority city because it “worked in the way of the ‘infidels.'”

The security agency said the group also planned to attack a busy bus stop in northern Israel, a police station in Nazareth, a forest where Jewish Israelis often visit, and other areas.

UK PM Liz Truss says her government mishandled announcement on tax cuts

02 October ,2022

Liz Truss acknowledged her UK government mishandled the announcement on cutting taxes which triggered a week of turmoil in financial markets, while insisting her approach is the correct one.

She also said the decision to remove the highest rate of income tax was taken by Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng and not put to her Cabinet.

“I do accept we should have laid the ground better; I’ve learned from that,” Truss told the BBC in Birmingham, where the ruling Conservative Party’s annual conference begins on Sunday. “I think we made the right decision to borrow more this winter to deal with the extraordinary circumstances we face.”

UK’s King Charles III will not attend COP27 after Truss ‘objected’

02 October ,2022

King Charles III will not travel to next month’s COP27 climate summit in Egypt after UK Prime Minister Liz Truss “objected” to the avid environmentalist attending, a report late Saturday said.

Britain’s new monarch, who took the throne when his mother Queen Elizabeth II died last month, had intended to deliver a speech at the November 6-18 gathering, the Sunday Times reported.

But the plan has been axed after Truss -- who was only appointed prime minister by the late queen two days before she died -- opposed it during a personal audience with Charles at Buckingham Palace last month.

Thousands of supporters of Arema, known as “Aremania,” reacted by throwing bottles and other objects at players and officials. Fans flooded the Kanjuruhan Stadium pitch in protest and demanded that Arema management explain why, after 23 years of undefeated home games, this match ended in a loss, witnesses said.

The rioting spread outside the stadium where at least five police vehicles were toppled and set ablaze amid the chaos. Riot police responded by firing tear gas, including toward the stadium’s stands, causing panic among the crowd. Tear gas is banned at football stadiums by FIFA.
