De-Criminalisation of Section 377: Why is law driven by religion?

Why we should/ should not ban Triple talaq?

In the last month or so, ever since news of a Public Interest Litigation against instantaneous triple talaq filed by 35-year-old Shayara Banu from Uttarakhand’s Kashipur district made headlines, there have been a slew of news reports about the validity of the triple talaq and the harm caused by it to women and articles by Islamic scholars calling for a ban on this practice and terming it un-Islamic. Many reports have also provided us with graphic details about the violence Banu was subjected to since her marriage and on the plight of Muslim women who are routinely served a talaqnama by post that ostensibly leave them high and dry, with no recourse whatsoever under prevailing statutes.

No matter what you do, you will still be a target

I recently read this article where the author agrees that Zakir Naik does not incite terror, but how can he praise the PM! If he doesn't he is banned, if he does he's not a true muslim. Also doesn't calling the PM a tyrant come under hate speech? What would have happened if Dr. Zakir would have done it? "Dr Zakir Naik has never incited terror, agreed. He was just a soft and high-profile target that the Islamophobic brigade picked on, to attack the community. But what Zakir Naik does, is not much better than inciting terror: he praises tyrants."

Is the next world war going to be between Islamic fundamentalists and the world

In a democratic set up it has become hard to expand one's territory so the only way is to convince people of the dispute and religion/faith is a easy way out. Religions conflicts are easy to trigger and hence mobilized. But the speed and extent it has reached can bring shivers down the spine. War of religion has special ability to convince people to do anything and everything making it brutal than anything else.

Why are orthodox Muslims afraid of sufism, is it because sufi interpretation of Qur'an more powerful than orthodox interpretation?

"Each and every reader comprehends the holy Qur'an on a different level in tandem with the depth of his understanding. There are four levels of insights. The first level is the outer meaning and it is the one that majority of people are content with. Next is Batini- the inner level. Third there is the inner of the inner. And the fourth level is so deep that it cannot be put into word and is bound to remain indescribable. Scholars who focus on the Sharia know the outer meaning, Sufis know the inner meaning" : Sweet Blasphemy ( by A.Z.Zahara)

The Muslim Personal Law is supposed to protect Women from discriminatory customary laws, but is very ineffective. Why does religion decide come over Law?

Several laws have been enacted to address the concerns of Muslim women in India dealing primarily with issues like marriage, divorce, maintenance and inheritance. But at the community or societal level, these laws do not help them much in seeking justice. The laws that are framed exclusively for Muslim women fail to protect their rights and prove ineffective in helping them enjoy the status as guaranteed to them in the Quran. In the absence of a codified personal law, Muslim women in India are still subjected to gender injustice and inequalities.

The Shariat Application Act, 1937

In 1937, Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act was passed when India was still a British colony. Its main objective was to govern the Muslim community by a unified shariat law and not by the prevailing customary laws that have displaced the rules of the shariat law.

All muslims are not terrorist but in last 5-10 years, a perception/version of Islam has convinced a lot of people to believe that terrorism in the name of Islam/Jihad is justified, and this needs to be fought. #OrlandoShooting

Is the government spending on projects and salaries the prime mover of our economy now ?

With private investment as well as exports secularly declining, and the new engine of startups also stagnating now in the absence of the heady days of valuations and fund raise, it looks as if the government spend is the prime mover of the economy now. This could be dangerous as the government may come under pressure due to fiscal pressures as well as oil price hikes and it could severely inhibit growth in the absence of other movers.
