Triple talaq is not an essential religious practice in Islam, Centre to Supreme Court

The Centre filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that triple talaq is not an essential religious practice in Islam. The government argued in the top court that the validity of triple talaq and polygamy has to be seen in the light of gender justice, equality and dignity of women.

The BJP-led government said women in India should not be denied their constitutional rights even as several Muslim countries have undergone extensive reforms. There have been meetings between representatives of several ministries including Home, Finance, Women and Child Development and Law. A bench headed by Chief Justice of India T S Thakur is hearing a bunch of petitions questioning the legal validity of the practice of triple talaq.

Meanwhile, the All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board is set to file a petition in the Supreme Court demanding a ban on triple talaq and those that are given over email, SMS or by post.

“Often when a man gives talaq in a fit of rage but regrets it afterward, the couple has no option of going back because the Maulana says divorce has happened. We want that to change,” said Shaista Amber, president of the AIMWPLB. At the same time, she clarified that the board is not in favour of a uniform civil code.
