One Day Workshop on Criminalizing Triple Talaq – Looking Beyond Religion on 16th Nov. 2019 @ MNLU Mumbai


In a legal system which has given personal laws a long rope for decades and until recent past of criminalising practices such as triple talaq jurisprudence in India has been evolving. The passage of Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019 criminalizes extra-judicial talaq of Talaq-e-biddat also known as Talaq-a-bain or triple talaq. After the enactment of this law, certain factions of society are upbeat and looking forward to criminalizing of bigamous marriages and outlawing the practice of NikahHalala. It’s even argued that this shall pave way for Uniform Civil Code. India is a secular country and has personal laws that govern matters of marriage, divorce, maintenance, inheritance, adoption, guardianship, succession etc.
