Kurds in Turkey

Triple Talaq PLEASE refer to Gautam Navlakha's article Triple Talaq: Posturing at Women's Expense'. While I appreciate Navlakha's line of argument, he has failed to make a distinction between the basis for possible reform in Muslim personal law as distinct from the Hindu personal code. This is a point which is often not fully appreciated by our liberal and progressive friends. A Muslim, by definition, accepts the mandatory provisions of the Holy Quran, particularly insofar as they are explicit and do not call for any Explanation or interpretation. A Muslim cannot pick and choose in the Quran. All over the world, with the exception of Turkey, social reform in Muslim society has been based on a reaffirmation of the Shariat because in many cases the de facto position in Muslim society constitutes a deviation from the Quranic mandates. Any other point of reference humanitarian or liberal or progressive cannot be acceptable to Muslims.
