PLEA FOR BAN ON TRIPLE TALAQ

Shayara Bano, a resident of Uttarakhand filed a petition against the triple talaq practice exercised by Muslim males according to their personal laws. According to her and  other Muslim women all around the world, this practice subjects the Muslim women to discrimination. Cases of divorce over text messages, calls and even Skype calls have been reported. Her petition was taken over by the Apex court and proceedings were made to inspect the matter. Suggestions for changes in the law and making it unlawful were made by a special committee. This faced  huge protest from Islamic judicial bodies and groups. However, women such as Shayara, continue to protest as they seek protection for their marriage. They find their lives at stake because of triple talaq practice. Also other practices like polygamy tend to grant Muslim women, a vulnerable position in society.

 

Meanwhile, the court has invited special advice and reports from various other organizations to understand the matter in detail.Shayara Bano, a resident of Uttarakhand filed a petition against the triple talaq practice exercised by Muslim males according to their personal laws.
