May 17 , Wednesday : Triple talaq is not a vital part of Islam, the Centre told to the Supreme Court. It said this practice of divorce is all about men versus women within Muslim community , where men are superior than women.
The Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, representing Centre said Triple talaq should not be seen as discrimination between majority versus minority community, it’s an issue related to women’s right.
Earlier in a day, AIMPLB counsel Kapil Sibal said this challenging constitutional validity of triple talaq may have a reviving impact on a dying practice of divorce as it is relatively falling down by referring to figure of 0.44 per cent.

Sibal further added, Muslim community has faith in SC for last 67 yrs is fundamental and it is this faith that makes the country vibrant.
