The CJI remarked that these practices have been going on for thousands of years and it may be a religious custom.

While polygamy allows a Muslim man to have four wives, ’nikah halala’ deals with the process in which a Muslim woman, who wants to re-marry her husband after divorce, has to first marry another person and get a divorce from him after the consummation.

The plea said that "extra-judicial talaq" amounted to cruelty and be made an offence under section 498A (subjecting a married woman to cruelty) of the IPC. It also sought that the practice of ’nikah halala’ be considered as the offence of rape under the IPC.
