The AIMPLB said that such a step would violate Part III of the Constitution and that Article 44 is only a directive which is not enforced, thereby implying that the courts cannot interfere in the matters of the personal laws.

The Supreme Court would be taking a hearing on the 'triple talaq' matter on 6 September on a plea filed by Shayara Bano of Uttarakhand. The top court is also going to make a ruling on halala (remarriage to the same partner after the divorced woman consummates her marriage with another man and gets divorced) and polygamy.

Various petitions by women's groups and other pleas filed by Muslim women organisations have been submitted to the Supreme Court, like the 'Shamim Ara vs State of UP' and 'Shah Bano maintenance case' which resulted in Parliament passing a law which overrode a Supreme Court verdict giving a divorced Muslim woman a better maintenance than what she got under personal law.

A bench headed by the Chief Justice had in December commented on the matter of 'triple talaq' and stated, "If a victim of triple talaq comes to the court and questions the validity of the… procedure, we can surely examine the legality of triple talaq and find out whether it violated her fundamental rights."
