New Delhi [India], Oct 21 (ANI): All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Monday moved the Supreme Court challenging the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019, which criminalizes triple talaq among Muslims.
The petition was filed by advocate M R Shamshad on the behalf of the law board.
The Act makes instant triple talaq a cognizable offense and attracts up to three years of imprisonment and a fine.
Under the act, an accused can be arrested without a warrant. (ANI)
