New Delhi [India], Oct. 7 (ANI): The Centre today filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court on Triple Talaq and polygamy validity.

According to the affidavit, the Centre said that there is no reason women in India should be denied their constitutional rights.

"Validity of Triple Talaq and polygamy have to be seen in light of gender justice, equality and dignity of women," stated the Centre in its affidavit.

The Government also said that polygamy and triple talaq do not adhere to constitutional values and, therefore, cannot be accepted.

The Muslim law board had earlier claimed that triple talaq is a 'personal law' and, hence, cannot be modified by the Centre.(ANI)
