Mohameddaanse namen? Je verwacht het niet hè?

Drievoudige talaq is een gebruik uit de Hadith (niet de Koran zelf) dat in de meeste islamitische landen, inclusief de buurlanden Pakistan en Bangladesh, allang is afgeschaft. Het bestaat in India nog omdat moslims en andere minderheden er op basis van een koloniale wet uit 1937 voor huwen, scheiden en erven een eigen familierecht op na mogen houden.
Hooggerechtshof India moet kiezen: vrouwonvriendelijke flitsscheiding verbieden of niet?
Volgens de Indiase regering is talaq in strijd met de in de grondwet vastgelegde gelijkheid van man en vrouw en onrechtvaardig tegenover vrouwen, zelfs als het gebruik in de islam wortelt. 'Als we weduwenverbranding, mensenoffers en onaanraakbaarheid hebben verboden', aldus advocaat-generaal Mukul Rohatgi vorige week in zijn pleidooi, 'waarom triple talaq dan niet?'
Leiders van de moslimgemeenschap (13 procent van de 1,2 miljard Indiërs) zien dat anders. Triple talaq is geen zaak van de grondwet maar van religie, voerde de All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) aan. 'Dit is een 1.400 jaar oud islamitisch geloofsartikel waar de regering van af moet blijven', zei AIMPLB-advocaat Kapil Sibal vorige week.

Op grond daarvan verwoestten extremistische hindoes daar in 1992 een moskee.
Onbekend is hoe lang de hoogste rechters nu in conclaaf blijven. Ze hebben vorige week al duidelijk gemaakt dat ze buiten de godsdienst en het islamitisch familierecht willen blijven. 'Ze zullen triple talaq uitsluitend aan de grondwet toetsen, zodat een afwijzing ervan niet als een nederlaag van de moslim-gemeenschap of de islam kan worden opgevat', aldus Krishnan.
India schrapt nationaal verbod op koeienhandel: ban trof te veel (miljoenen) moslims
Met het nationale verbod wilde de Indiase regering 'ongecontroleerde handel en dierenleed' op veemarkten tegengaan. Hoewel het slachten en eten van runderen in slechts 8 van de 29 Indiase staten is toegestaan, mocht er landelijk wel gewoon worden gehandeld in koeien, buffels en kamelen. Sinds het verbod van afgelopen mei mocht er alleen nog vee worden verkocht voor zuivelproductie en landbouw. Handel voor de slacht werd voor het eerst in de Indiase geschiedenis illegaal.
Het verbod, zo stelt het hooggerechtshof, trekt een te grote wissel op de vlees- en leerindustrie en daarmee op het levensonderhoud van de miljoenen mensen, voornamelijk moslims, die in deze sector werken. De moslimpopulatie, zo'n 14 procent van de totale Indiase bevolking, zag de handelsban als poging hun positie in de Indiase samenleving verder te 'marginaliseren'.

More than 50 women in the northern Indian states of Haryana and Rajasthan have reported that they have had their hair chopped off while they were unconscious. Police are struggling to solve the mystery that is leaving women paranoid and worried, reports the BBC's Vikas Pandey.[...]
Reports of "phantom barbers" first emerged in early July from Rajasthan, but a spate of similar incidents are being reported from Haryana and even the capital, Delhi.
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-40749640"There was a strong flash of light that left me unconscious. An hour later, I found that my hair had also been chopped off," says Sunita Devi, a 53-year-old housewife from the Bhimgarh Kheri area of Gurgaon district in Haryana.
The "attack" on Friday has left her traumatised.
Just a few yards away, homemaker Asha Devi lost her hair in a similar attack the following day.
But this time the attacker was reportedly a woman.
Reena Devi, 28, from Jonawasa village says she was attacked on Thursday. And the attacker seems to be a cat this time. "I was doing my chores when I saw a large figure that resembled a cat. Then I felt somebody touching my shoulders, and that's the last thing I remember," she says. She agrees that her "story is hard to believe". "I know it sounds impossible. But that's what I saw. Some people say I cut my hair, but why would I do that?" she asks.
In the neighbouring village of Kharkharra, Sundar Devi, 60, has been bedridden since she was attacked on Saturday. "I was going to a neighbour's house when somebody tapped my shoulder from behind. When I looked back, there was nobody. That's the last thing I remember," she says.
Reema Devi, 28, says her hair was chopped off while she was playing a game on her phone on Thursday. "My husband and children were also in the room. I felt a pull on my hair and when I looked back, my hair was on the floor," she says.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/india-islamic-school-muslim-ban-photos-social-media-darul-uloom-deoband-school-saharanpur-uttar-a8011211.htmlLeading Indian Islamic school 'bans Muslims from posting pictures on social media'
The Darul Uloom Deoband school in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh, is said to have issued a fatwa against sharing personal photos online, after deeming the activity “un-Islamic”.
The ban applies to both men and women – despite the seminary itself having a social media presence.
The fatwa was issued after a person wrote in to ask about Islamic law in relation to the publication of images to platforms like Facebook and Whatsapp,
“Unnecessary uploading of pictures on social media is wrong. Fatwa of Darul Uloom Deoband is appropriate,'' Shahnawaz Qadri told IBT India.
The institution did not say what should happen to the numerous images and other posts, which Muslims have already added to their social media sites.
The ban comes shortly after the Darul Uloom Deoband issued an unexpected fatwa against women plucking their eyebrows. It also reportedly urged women not to go to beauty salons.
That decision was also taken after a question was submitted by a follower.
"Muslim women should stay away from beauty parlours as Islam does not permit them to have make-up attracting other male members,” said seminary Chief Maulana Sadiq Qasmi..
“Like Muslim male are not allowed to shave under Islam, eyebrow trimming, hair-cutting and make-up like wearing lipstick, etc is also banned"
He added that the "trend of Muslim women going to beauty parlours has increased in the country," which he said was "not a good sign and it should be stopped immediately."
He added: "We should have issued a fatwa in this regard long ago."
Darul Uloom deoband had ousted about a dozen Muslim women in Varanasi when they worshipped and performed Aarti on Lord Ram on Diwali. Following the ouster, the Chairperson of the Muslim Women Foundation, Varanasi Nazneen had demanded to ban Darul Uloom Deoband for spreading communal hatred in the society and issuing anti-Islamic fatwas.

“His act is against the basic tenets of Islam which does not allow any devout Muslim to worship anyone other than Allah. Moreover, idol worship is strictly banned in Islam” said a statement in Urdu from Deoband’s Ulema Mufti Tariq Kashmi.
“His (Salman Khurship) act violates Islamic laws and, therefore, he is being ousted from the Islam with immediate effect. He is no longer a Muslim and should repent (Tauba) before Allah for his un-Islamic act and read Kalma only then he will be allowed to embrace Islam again as per Islamic laws,” said the Ulema.
