What the divorce laws in Pakistan state after triple talaq was abolished
The Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi opened arguments in the Supreme Court by citing the example of Pakistan which had discontinued triple talaq. If a Muslim majority country such as Pakistan can do away with triple talaq, then why is India still continuing with it the AG asked. How triple talaq was done away with in Pakistan has an interesting history to it. In 1955, the then Prime Minister, Muhammad Ali Bogra married his secretary even though he had not divorced his first wife. This led to wide-spread protests by the All Pakistan Women’s Association which sought for a change in the law.
