NEW DELHI: A Mus­lim woman ad­vo­cate as­so­ci­ated with RSS has moved the SC, seek­ing that the reli­gion’s per­sonal law be cod­i­fied to end misog­y­nis­tic prac­tices such as polygamy and triple ta­laq. The ad­vo­cate, Farah Faiz, con­tended in her plea that “ta­laq-e-bidat (triple ta­laq) is not a form of di­vorce recog­nised in the Qu­ran. The pro­ce­dure pre­scribed en­tails ar­bi­tra­tion and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion after ta­laq is pro­nounced by the hus­band”.
