SC seeks response from Centre on fresh plea challenging practices of polygamy & Nikah-halala among Muslims

The Supreme Court has sought a response from the Centre on a fresh plea challenging practices of polygamy and nikah halala among Muslims. 

After issuing notice to the Centre, a bench, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, referred the matter to a constitution bench that has been already asked to hear a batch of similar petitions. 

The fresh plea sought a direction from the apex court to declare polygamy and nikah halala illegal and unconstitutional for being violative of several Articles of the Constitution. 

The petition also sought a declaration that extra-judicial talaq, nikah halala, and polygamy are offences under various sections of Indian Penal Code.
 
The apex court had in August last year banned the age-old practice of instant triple talaq. 

In March this year, it had decided to refer to a larger bench a batch of pleas challenging the constitutional validity of polygamy and nikah halala.
