Triple Talaq

Spread the love

Any sensible person would agree that the practice of triple talaq needs to be abolished because of the way it results in the abuse of women. It is unfortunate that the real issue here – of gender injustice – is sought to be smudged by giving it a communal colour. As expected, there are some persons who have labelled the women who petitioned the Supreme Court against triple talaq as biased. When criminal laws such as the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act and the Prevention of Sexual Harassment at the Workplace Act are uniform to all Indians irrespective of their religion, how can personal laws be different?
