SC issues notice to Centre on Muslim woman’s plea seeking ban on triple talaq
New Delhi, Aug 26 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Centre on a petition challenging the constitutional validity of the triple talaq system. The apex court has tagged this plea with pending matter in court. The petitioner, Ishrat Jahan, has sought a declaration from the apex court, saying that Section 2 of the Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937 was unconstitutional, as it violated fundamental rights guaranteed under Articles 14 (equality), 15 (non-discrimination), 21 (life) and 25 (religion) of the Constitution. In her petition, Jahan has asked whether an arbitrary and unilateral divorce through triple talaq can deprive the wife of her rights in her matrimonial home as also her right to have custody of her children.
