In India, for every divorced Muslim man, there are four divorced Muslim women, an IndiaSpend analysis of Census 2011 data shows.

Across religious communities, except Sikhs, there are more divorced women than men. But the gender skew is particularly sharp among Muslims (79:21), followed by 'other religions' (72:28), and Buddhists (70:30).

Among divorced Indian women, 68% are Hindu, and 23.3%, Muslims, according to Census 2011 data on the marital status of Indians. The data were recently cited by Muslim groups protesting the national law commission's formulation of a uniform civil code, especially a ban on triple talaq, according to this report in The Hindu.Among divorced men, Hindus account for 76%, and Muslims, 12.7%. Both Christian women and men cover 4.1% of their gender-respective divorced groups.Source: Census 2011

Is it good or bad that there are more divorced women [4 to 1] in muslim community . The logic that is being given is divorce reduces ill treatment of women in bad

marriages among muslims as divorce gives an easy way out of marriage.Is the logic correct?
The million $ Q is: 'Do women tolerate more in other religions'? :ballchain:

Oh come on, RRji! The situation here is not because Muslim women are braver and choosing to divorce. It is because of "Triple Talaq".

As usual, it is the short attention span of men to blame. But Muslim men can more easily and legally act on it.
In india,most muslim women belong to poorer sections of society and are economically dependant on man.

So they put up with lot of transgressions from menfolk.

They also have the fear that their man will take another wife if she tries to assert.

Then they get reduced to the status of maids in their own home.

So either they conform to wishes of man or get put into a corner or end up divorced with a triple talaq.

The status of women is very inferior and they are almost property of man to be got or disposed off at will of man.
