A man allegedly gave triple talaq to his wife inside the civil court premises in Lucknow in the presence of her advocate after she refused to accept a chewing gum from him.
The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019 which criminalises triple talaq has, so far, failed to act as a deterrent to the cases of triple talaq in Uttar Pradesh.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday said here that the concept of 'triple talaq' is "un-Islamic" and does not have the sanction of the Quran.
The police in Kerala on Friday arrested a man for giving triple talaq to his wife. The arrest was based on the Narendra Modi government's The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill.
