Amid the row over the Centre’s stand on triple talaq, the CPM on Tuesday said it was against the “practice of arbitrary and instant triple talaq”, but argued that all personal laws, including those of the Hindus, require reform.
The party, however, opposed any move to push Uniform Civil Code, saying uniformity is not the guarantee for equality.
The CPM politburo said the party “supports the demand of Muslim women against the practice of arbitrary and instant triple talaq.” It said that acceptance of this demand would bring relief to affected women.
The CPI, too, argued that some reform in Muslim personal law was necessary, but that the Muslim community had to discuss the issue.
