“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.”
