Veteran actor Shabana Azmi truly believes that in Islam, marriage is not made in heaven and is essentially a contract.
Last week, she welcomed the Supreme Court’s ruling on triple talaq (divorce) providing that “the judgment is a victory for brave Muslim women in the country.”
On Tuesday, the Neerja actor shared an article on Madrassas in Uttar Pradesh to teach the ‘correct ways of divorce’ and tweeted:
Predictably, many twitter users did not agree with her notion of marriage:
Azmi, who is married to writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar, has always been vocal about many issues within society.
She runs the NGO Mijwan Welfare Society which was founded by her father and poet Kaifi Azmi with the ambition of creating employment opportunities for women and reviving the art of chikankari embroidery.
