Allahabad High Court on Tuesday gave strong message to Muslim clerics for issuing fatwas on Triple Talaq. The high court observed making unconstitutional statements in the name of fatwas cannot be permitted. 

 Personal laws can only be applied within the ambit of equal human rights, the court said. 

It is not fair to violate human rights on the basis of gender. 

The Islamic practice under which a man can divorce his wife by saying “talaq” (divorce) thrice has grabbed national headlines after a bunch of women approached the Supreme Court against the custom. The government has opposed triple talaq in SC and said it was unconstitutional because it was gender discriminatory.

A five-judge bench of the top court will start hearing the petitions demanding scrapping of triple talaq, nikah halala and polygamy from May 11, the first time the SC is giving up its two-month summer break.
