SUPREME COURT SAYS THERE IS NO TIME TO HEAR ON POLYGAMY, NIKAH HALALA :

Triple Talaq hearing: The Supreme Court considers the plea of Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, says issues of polygamy and ‘nikah halala’ will remain open for future adjudication. The SC also says that due to paucity of time it will only be dealing with the issue of triple talaq and will keep issues of ‘polygamy’ and ‘nikah halala’ pending. The Supreme Court is continuing the hearing on the Triple Talaq case.  The Centre, on May 11, told the apex court that it opposes the triple talaq practice and wants to fight for women equality and gender justice.  However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board counsel Kapil Sibal told the apex court that triple talaq is a matter that comes under the Muslim board and therefore, in his opinion, the top court should not interfere in it.  The Central Government makes rules but in my opinion the apex court should not interfere into it, Sibal said.  While hearing several pleas filed by Muslim women challenging the practice of triple talaq, the apex court observed that it would examine whether the issue is fundamental to religion or not.  A five-judge bench of the apex court further observed that it would not hear polygamy issue along with the triple talaq case.  The Rediff.com : 15th.
