The nation await the Supreme Court judgement on oral talaq, which is opposed by millions of women. The Government of India joined the petition by Muslim women to see the ban of this practice and even offered stated that they would bring a law to ban this. However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, an unelected body which claims to represent all Muslims kept resisting and resisting on the grounds this is a religious practice and cannot be interfered with. Suddenly, the AIMPLB has a change of heart. They have now filed an affidavit with the Supreme Court which states that “ANY MUSLIM MAIN WHO RESORTS TO TRIPLE TALAQ WILL FACE SOCIAL BOYCOTT“. This is along with other actions. Obviously the Muslim Board is not just late to the petition being heard by the Supreme Court, but they at least 70 years too late since independence?
