While this case is to be heard by the Supreme Court, the Allahabad high court, one of the premier high court for legal opinion came down heavily on the practice of triple talaq – calling it that this form of instant divorce is cruel and most demeaning which impedes and drags India from becoming a nation. The court noted that divorce is permissible in Islam only in case of extreme emergency. So why are the “Secular parties” who get a major portion of their support from the minority communities against banning triple talaq. These parties include the Congress (led by Sonia Gandhi), Samajwadi party, Mayawati and her BSP, Mamata Banerjee and the Trinamool Congress, the left front parties all for continuing for practices that treat women badly and in favour of triple talaq which gives all the power to divorce to men only in the Muslim community.

Suddenly, he is feeling sad for that incident, however, no regrets have been expressed. One is left to wonder the real motivation – one could be all the important state elections in UP next year.
