“In case of a triple divorce, the divorce will be considered valid. However the last decision rests with the Qazi in the court,” said Ayaz as he responded to a question.

“Unfortunately the impression created about women is that we only make them a basis of our arguments but we have even made some recommendations for the rights of women.”

While answering another question, he said that Maulana Sheerani’s remarks are his personal opinion.

“There are no restrictions on women for taking part in economic activities if they keep themselves within the limit of modesty and chastity.”

    triple divorce without registration in Court or Union Council is another crime from the side of male, because woman has no evidence and no right of second marriage.In case of unregistered divorce, male has right to registered FIR against his Ex-Wife, while woman has no protection in that case.

    Government give the right to women to register Complaint in Court/ Union Council against unregistered divorce. On the basis of Circumstance, Court/Union Council impose capital fine and order FIR against Ex-Husband on unregistered Divorce or for violation of legal procedure in current law.

    Government enforce it for woman protection from 1980 and onward complaint Recommend
