"99% of Women Are Happy With Sharia"

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board says that no changes to Islamic law will be tolerated, and that it's totally cool to divorce your wife by text message.
Asked about talaq messages being sent by WhatsApp and SMSes, Zehra told Hindustan Times, “At least the woman has a proof in the form of WhatsApp message or an SMS that she has been divorced. This proof will help her in charting out a new course in life. But in other religions, women are just being abandoned by their husbands. For such women, there is no help forthcoming.”
Indeed, if only women in other faiths had the benefit of a text message to prove their legal status.

Amazing what an approval rate you can get from women if you only listen to what men say the women think. I don't posit that as a gender-specific issue. It works for any two groups with a power imbalance.

I don't disagree in general, however, in this case the speaker is a woman. Asma Zehra is one of the female members of the Muslim Personal Law board.
