Muslims shouts slogans protesting against the government approving an ordinance to implement a top court ruling striking down the Muslim practice that allows men to instantly divorce in Mumbai. The government decision came after it failed to get approval of Parliament a year after the court ruled that the practice of triple “talaq” violated the constitutional rights of Muslim women.
