'Triple Talaq is part of Shariat, hope court will not interfere': AIMPLB

By Vikas

With the Supreme Court set to pronounce its historic judgment on the constitutional validity of triple talaq, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has said that the Constitution of India has given a right to everyone to follow their religion, adding that triple talaq is part of the Shariat.

    "We have put forth our view in light of Quran and we are confident enough that whatever will be the judgement of the court, it will naturally be in the light of the Constitution of our country," he said.

    The multi-religion constitution bench comprises of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justices Kurian Joseph, RF Nariman, UU Lalit and Abdul Nazeer. The bench had begun the hearing on May 11.

    It would either declare the practice as valid or unconstitutional or let the government take a decision on the matter.

    Triple Talaq is a form of divorce practised in India, whereby a Muslim man can legally divorce his wife by pronouncing talaq three times. The pronouncement can be oral or written, or, in recent times, delivered by electronic means such as telephone, SMS, email or social media.

    The bench had made it clear that it would examine whether the practice of triple talaq among Muslims is fundamental to their religion and had also said for the time being it will not deliberate upon the issue of polygamy and 'nikah halala'.
