Triple Talaq victim threatens to 'convert' to Hinduism

Probably, he was well aware of the origin, practice and prevalence of triple talaq among Muslims in India and overseas.

The Bench headed by Chief Justice of India JS Khehar had asked AIMPLB, "Can it be that the AIMPLB passes a resolution binding all Quazis to incorporate a condition in the nikaah nama which gives the woman option to say no to triple talaq before she gives her consent to marry". The bench was told that the AIMPLB would file an affidavit before the court stating its decision.

"In most cases where Muslim women have moved to court, it is to seek maintenance from a husband who has deserted her".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi disagrees and previous year waded into a controversy by saying he believed it was destroying women's lives, with Muslims making up about 13 per cent of the country's 1.2 billion people. The High Court described it as the "worst form of marriage dissolution" and wants it barred.

Justice Kurian Joseph intervened to point out that the Constitution also says to leave personal laws and customs alone. Also, by implication, triple talaq itself doesn't become extinct if a woman desires the provision. "The only permissible Constitutional route under Article 25 is for the Legislature to make a law and then its validity will be tested in court", he added. It is salutary that detailed discussions are taking place on social issues and personal laws.

On the question of whether the Centre would bring in legislation or not, Rohatgi said that even when there was no legislation, courts had all the authority to intervene.

However, the top court said that they have a limited time, so all the matters could not be covered at present. Senior advocate Salman Khurshid briefed the hearing of the Supreme Court and said today was the final day for the replies to be given by those who felt that they had something in response to suggest whatever arguments were made by the opposition.

"We all have debated that this practice is not part of the Quran and even the board has said that this practice is an undesirable practice". Talaq is a word which, if told three times in a row, equals - in the Islamic tradition - a divorce.

But the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), a non-governmental body which oversees the application of Muslim personal law, opposes any ban on triple talaq and argues this is a religious matter and not for the courts.

Counsel Kapil Sibal's argument of "majority can not make laws for the minority", on Wednesday said that triple talaq was an "intra-minority issue where the men formed the class of "haves" and women were the "have-nots" and stated that courts were not the place to discuss religious texts.
