Triple Talaq

A five-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court, which has begun hearing a clutch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the practice of 'instant triple talaq' or talaq-e-bidat among Muslims, has said it would first determine if the practice is fundamental to Islam. Besides seeking a ban on instant triple talaq, the seven petitioners that comprise five Muslim women have also moved the apex court over the practice of nikah halala and polygamy in the community. The court is unlikely to deliberate on polygamy. Many Islamic nations, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt and Iran, do not recognise the husband's right to unilaterally divorce through triple talaq.
