The apex court had earlier said it would decide issues pertaining to the legal aspects of the practices of "triple talaq", "nikah halala" and polygamy among Muslims but would not deal with the question whether divorce under Muslim law needs to be supervised by courts as it falls under the legislative domain.

A Muslim woman has made a decision to sit on dharna outside her husband's house, after learning she was served a triple talaq and wasn't allowed to enter her own house anymore.

Multiple letters written to the Prime Minister by Muslim women demand that triple talaq be ended.

He said over the next few months "rising inflationary pressures will increase the gradient on the economic growth treadmill". United Kingdom living standards are under more pressure than at any time in 2 1/2 years and the squeeze is getting tighter.

Muslim women in Uttar Pradesh have claimed that they voted for the BJP so that the practice of triple talaq, as mentioned in their manifesto, is done away with. It may be recalled that many Muslim women have filed PILs in the SC challenging the provision of triple talaq and "nikah halala", terming them as regressive. The matter would be examined by a five-judge Constitution Bench during the summer vacation.

On March 27, the Board told the Supreme Court that talaq and polygamy are integral part of the religion of Sunni Muslims and the court could not alter the sanctity of personal laws.

Referring to reforms by several Islamic countries, including those having overwhelming Muslim populations, the Centre said Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt and Iran have undertaken significant reforms and the practices of instant triple talaq or automatic polygamy at will, is not permitted in most of these countries. She said, "I want to go in". The submissions drawn by advocate Madhvi Divan have been settled by Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi.

The Centre said such rights were available to women of other religions and the "unreasonable differentiation/classification between Muslim women and non-Muslim women" could not be "countenanced in a secular country".

Describing triple talaq, "nikah halala" and polygamy as repugnant to the guarantee of secularism - an essential feature of the Indian Constitution - the Centre said that lopsided development and pockets of social backwardness is not in the larger interest of the integrity and development of the nation. They will hold talks with women organisations to know the opinion of Muslim women on the matter.

Troubled by the increasing controversy over the issue of triple talaq, the Muslim Law Board has decided that it will abolish the practice of triple talaq within 18 months.
