The Apex Court will be hearing several petition filed questioning the Constitutional acceptability of Triple Talaq and polygamy in the Muslim community. Notably, the Supreme Court had earlier refused to debate the vital issue of uniform civil code (UCC). Although the petitioners had claimed that the matter is sensitive and requires attention.
A number of women have filed a petition before the Supreme Court asking for the banning of the Triple Talaq practice. Meanwhile, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board has defended the practice, saying it is better to divorce a woman than kill her. They claimed that the rights of the religion cannot be questioned.
The Muslim body is strictly opposing any orders against Triple Talaq, said that any law against it would be violation on their right to follow their religion.
