After the government has maintained that it would bring a ‘law’ to regulate marriage and divorce among Muslims if the Supreme Court scrapped Triple Talaq, the Congress sidesteps itself from commenting on the ‘sensitive issue’ while expressing assurances over the apex court’s ‘ultimate’ decision.
“We are yet to hear as to what is the view of the Supreme Court on this matter. It would be better we rein our horses before making a comment on this sensitive issue,” Congress leader Tom Vadakkan said.
Maintaining the similar views, Congress leader Shobha Oza said that it was not apt to comment on the issue when the hearing is already underway. “We have confidence that the Supreme Court will protect women’s right. The apex court will assure women’s right,” she said.
The Centre on Monday had said the apex court that it will introduce a law to regulate marriage and divorce among Muslims if Triple Talaq was upheld as unacceptable. “The government will come out with the law to regulate marriage and divorce among Muslims if court holds Triple Talaq as invalid,” Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told SC.
He also maintained that Triple Talaq violates Muslim women’s right to equality within the community, and country both.
