Several Muslim women have challenged the practice of triple talaq in which the husband can give talaq thrice in one go, even over the phone or through a text message.

"A code of conduct for talaq is being issued".

He alleged that this exposed the double standards of the AIMPLB as it wanted the court to resolve the temple issue but did not want the judiciary's interference as regards "triple talaq".

"The need of the hour is to enact a strict law against triple talaq in one go that is similar to the anti-sati law to prevent any Muslim woman from getting victimised and ensure that the culprit is punished", he said.

The Union government on October 7 past year opposed in the SC the triple talaq and other Islamic practices such as "nikah halala" and polygamy and favoured a relook in their continuation on grounds such as gender equality and secularism.

The Ministry of Law and Justice, in its affidavit, had referred to constitutional principles like gender equality, secularism, global covenants, religious practices and marital laws prevalent in various Islamic countries to advocate that the practice of triple talaq and polygamy needed to be adjudicated upon afresh by the apex court.

The Centre has argued that triple talaq violates the right to equality guaranteed under the Constitution as the practice negates the principle of gender equality. What we have to do is that if there are any scial evils, we have to wake up the society and make efforts to provide justice to them (Muslim women).
