Triple Talaq has been declared unconstitutional by the Allahabad High Court. Hearing the plea filed by Muslim Women, the court said that the Triple Talaq is the violation of the Muslim Women and no Personal Law is above the Constitution of the country.
There have been many petitions filed for Triple Talaq and Supreme Court is also re looking into all the matters based on the arguments and scope of the constitution. The Central Government has also thrown the weight against the Triple Talaq and Polygamy and quoted gender biases and discrimination against the women for this Muslim Personal Laws.
The All India Muslim Personal Law Board has however rejected all the arguments and is hell bent on Triple Talaq. They have said that this is the Sharia Law and no other uniform law can be imposed on Muslims. They have clearly told that no other law for marriage, divorce and adaptation is accepted apart from Sharia for Muslim.
Even though Supreme Court is yet to come out with the verdict but the decision of the Allahabad High Court can change the course of the petitions filed by the Muslim Women and organizations.
It is interesting that such laws have already been abolished even in the Islamic Countries such as Pakistan. These particular laws do violate many sections of the constitution and in a democracy, there is nothing bigger than that. However, it has to be seen whether the Muslim Personal Law is regarded in this matter or Supreme Court would follow the same as Allahabad High Court.
