Fresh plea in SC against triple talaq system of Muslim divorce


A fresh petition has been filed in the Supreme Court to declare the ‘Triple Talaq system’ under Shariat law which enables Muslim men to unilaterally exercise the power of divorce, as invalid in law and unconstitutional. Last week a Muslim woman from Jaipur has moved the SC challenging the triple talaq she received from her husband through ‘speed post’.


Mrs Badar Sayeed,  former MLA in Tamil Nadu and rights activist has filed the present petition seeking intervention in a batch of petitions pending in the apex court challenging the triple talaq system of divorce.


She drew the court’s attention the plight faced by Muslim women in this country on account of arbitrary divorces imposed upon them by men without due intervention of Courts.
