Hyderabad: MIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday termed the triple talaq ordinance unconstitutional and anti-Muslim women.

“This Ordinance is unconstitutional. The ordinance is against the Constitution's right to equality as it is being made only for Muslims. All India Muslim Personal Law Board & women organisations should challenge this ordinance in the Supreme Court,” he said.

“This ordinance will not provide justice to the Muslim women. In Islam, marriage is a civil contract and bringing penal provisions in it is wrong,” Owaisi said.
