NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will on Wednesday hear the triple talaq case filed by Shayara Banu.

38-year-old Shayara Banu stirred a hornet's nest after she moved the apex court to challenge the triple talaq under Muslim personal law, under which a man simply has to utter 'talaq' thrice to divorce his wife.

The consent of the woman is never taken into consideration, and as opposed to what is mandated under the Quran, the woman is never given the stipulated three months' time.

Shayara has also challenged in the apex court the concept of ?nikah-halal?, under which a woman must consummate another marriage in order to go back to her first husband if she wants to. She also wants to outlaw polygamy within a Muslim marriage.

A resident of Kashipur, Shayara got married to Allahabad-based property dealer, Rizwan Ahmed, in 2002. The problems started soon enough.
