The Supreme Court of India will hear the Triple Talaq case from May 11 and said that this time the “matter will be settled for good.” Chief Justice of India, J S Khehar said, “the hearing take place during summer vacations.” A 5-judge Constitution bench has been set up by the apex court to hear the case challenging the validity of triple talaq and the practice of polygamy during its summer vacations, between May 11- July 1. This announcement by the apex court to examine the legal aspects of the case comes after UP CM Yogi Adityanath was urged by a woman to abolish the Islamic practice of dissolving marriage.
Nida Khan, who has been a victim of Triple Talaq has appealed for help from CM Adityanath for the abolition of this anti-women Islamic tradition. In an earlier case, a pregnant woman after being abandoned by her husband had written to PM Narendra Modi asking him to ban this practice.

In an earlier judgement, SC made it clear that is not debating any issue relating to the uniform civil code (UCC). The court has even received various petitions from women to stop the practice of triple talaq. According to media reports, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has defended triple talaq and are saying that “it is better to divorce a woman than kill her.” It also said that “The rights bestowed by religion can’t be questioned in a court of law.” AIMPLB also claim that any order against their practice of Triple Talaq will be a violation on their rights. In the past, the apex court has heard a lot of petitioners asking them to ban this practice.
