The Supreme Court on Tuesday orally observed that the practice of Talaq-e-Hasan among Muslims for divorce is prima facie not improper, and added that it does not want this to become an agenda for any other reason.
A bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul said prima facie the court is of the opinion that Talaq-e-Hasan is not very improper. “Prima facie this (Talaq-e-Hasan) is not so improper. Women also have an option… Khula is there,” observed Justice Kaul.
The bench, also comprising Justice M.M. Sundresh, said prima facie it does not agree with the petitioner. Talaq-e-Hasan is the practice by which a Muslim man can divorce his wife by saying the word talaq once a month, for three months. “Don’t want this to become an agenda for any other reason,” said the bench.
Senior advocate Pinky Anand, appearing for the petitioner, contended that though the top court declared triple talaq unconstitutional, it left the issue of Talaq-e-Hasan undecided.
During the hearing, the bench observed that women also have a similar option by way of ‘Khula’ and courts also grant divorce by mutual consent in case of irretrievable breakdown of marriage. “This is not triple talaq…If two people cannot live together, we are also granting divorce by irretrievable breakdown of marriage,” said the bench.
The bench further queried that the petitioner’s counsel, was the petitioner open to divorce by mutual consent, if mehar is taken care of? The top court has scheduled the hearing on the matter on August 29 and asked the counsel to take instructions in the matter.
The top court was hearing a plea seeking a direction to declare “Talaq-E-Hasan and all other forms of unilateral extra-judicial talaq,” unconstitutional for being arbitrary, irrational, and violative of Articles 14, 15, 21, 25 of the Constitution.
The plea also sought a direction to the Centre to frame guidelines for neutral uniform grounds of divorce and uniform procedure of divorce for all citizens. The petition was filed by journalist Benazeer Heena through advocate Ashwani Kumar Dubey.
The plea argued that the practice of Talaq-E-Hasan and other forms of unilateral extra- judicial talaq is neither harmonious with the modern principles of human rights and gender equality, nor an integral part of Islamic faith. “Many Islamic nations have restricted such practice, while it continues to vex the Indian society in general and Muslim women like the petitioner in particular. It is submitted that the practice also wreaks havoc to lives of many women and their children, especially those belonging to the weaker economic sections of the society,” it added.

Mumbai: ‘Don’t Disrespect Our Father’ Supriya Sule Warns BJP
NCP Working President Supriya Sule issued a warning saying ‘disrespect us, but not our father’ while addressing the party gathering in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Slamming the BJP and referring to it as the most corrupt party in the country, she said, “Disrespect us, but not our father (Sharad Pawar). This fight is against the BJP government. BJP is the most corrupt party in the country.”
Supriya Sule hits out at state govt
She also hit out at BJP, Ajit Pawar, and Eknath Shinde-led government and alleged that BJP is using Income Tax, CBI, and Enforcement Directorate to threaten the party MLAs. However, she claimed NCP will give an appropriate answer very soon.
Referring to Ajit Pawar’s advise to Pawar Sr to retire while mentioning his age, Supriya Sule said, “Age is just a number.” She also cited Ratan Tata, Amitabh Bachchan and Cyrus Punawala to prove her argument that a person can be active and work for the society if he has the will to do so.
Striking an emotional chord, Sharad Pawar’s daughter also said that daughters are the best support for a father when it is required.
“Instead of asking them to sit at home and give blessings, daughters are better. They become the support system for their fathers when the house is in danger,” she said.
Mumbai News: Just 32k Legal Hawkers But Over 1L Availed Loan Scheme
If there are only 32,000 legal hawkers in the city then how come Prime Minister Narendra Modi distributed loans under PM SVANidhi Yojana to more than one lakh hawkers, asked former opposition leader in BMC Ravi Raja. On January 19, 2023, PM Modi distributed a loan of ₹10,000 each to 1.10 lakh hawkers. The grant was provided based on the certificates issued by the BMC.
Ravi Raja fumes over PM Modi
The ex-Congress corporator fumed over the civic body’s decision to allow 32,000 hawkers, who were termed as legal vendors after a survey, to vote in the Town Vending Committee (TVC) election. The committee, which comprises civic chief, representatives from traffic police and various BMC departments, members of hawker association and civic society, plays a crucial role in implementing the rules pertaining to hawkers as well as identifying eligible hawkers. Hence, 32,000 hawkers have been allowed to vote for TVC elections as it’s a question of their livelihood.
Averring that the BMC is “messing up” with the hawkers policy, Raja further said that rules say that 2.5 per cent of the total population can do hawking business.
The BMC is in the process of sending the list of 32,000 hawkers to the labor commissioner for getting their names stamped for TVC election. However, Raja has demanded that the civic administration should wait till the election of corporators, which is long overdue.
The opposition criticized the government after the death of 31 people, including 12 children, in Nanded hospital.
