Today, on this first day of 2018, when everyone is busy wishing their near and dear ones 'a very happy and prosperous New Year 2018', it's the Muslim women who have the most to smile about as they find liberation and empowerment with the help and support of the present Govt-their newfound ally.
Muslim women have , for long, experienced pain and difficulties due to the practice of Triple Talaq. But now, after a long fight, this inhuman and evil practice has been abolished, bringing joy and relief to the Muslim women.
Adding further to their rights, leading to happiness, they can now go for the Haj pilgrimage without 'mahram'(an adult, male blood relative or husband). For the past 70 years, Muslim women have been suffering the injustice of the policy which allowed them to perform Haj only in the company of a male guardian. Such a restriction is not prevalent in many Islamic countries and the scrapping of this rule will have a far reaching impact on our image as a society.
These two major steps , abolishing Instant Talaq and removal of the restriction of having a 'mahram' for Haj pilgrimage , will provide equal opportunity to Muslim women and will enable them to proceed simultaneously on the path of progress .
