Supreme Court on Thursday will hear a petition on the Constitutional legitimacy of ‘triple talaq’ and polygamy in the Muslim community. All India Muslim Personal Board (AIMPLB) has urged the Supreme Court not to meddle with its personal laws.
The Board defended the practice, saying it is better to divorce a woman than kill her. The Muslim body has claimed that any order against Triple Talaq would be an infringement on their right to follow and profess any religion.
The Apex Court has been hearing a number of petitions against triple talaq demanding the banning of the same. A three-month pregnant woman in Saharanpur wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging to bring to end Triple Talaq after her husband abandoned her fearing she may give birth to a girl again.
