New Delhi: The Supreme Court today asked all the respective parties to give their written submissions to Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi by March 30 in the triple talaq case. A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Jagdish Singh Khehar, said the issue was extremely grave and needed to be heard.

The apex court had in its last hearing clarified that it would not get into the common civil code issue. It had also declared that it wanted to adjudicate on the triple talaq issue which involved a person's human rights.

On February 14, the Supreme Court had termed 'triple talaq' as an issue of human rights, and said that it will not hear the petitions related to Uniform Civil Code along with it as it was a different matter altogether. "It's a matter of human rights, so we would deal with it properly," the apex court said.

The bench also said that it would pass an order and dispose off the petitions on May 11, regarding the validity of triple talaq case. It was hearing the plea filed by one Shayara Banu, who had moved the apex court challenging the validity of triple talaq.
Several women had filed a petition before the Supreme Court seeking the quashing of the triple talaq practice. The Centre had also told the Supreme Court that it was against gender injustice and for equality between men and women under the Constitution.
