Urgent Mentioning: 2 December 2019

The Supreme Court is hearing several PILs challenging the constitutionality of polygamy, nikah halala and other Muslim marriage law matters. On 26 March 2018, it issued notice to the Union of India and referred the matter to a Constitution Bench. 

Today one of the petitioners, BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, mentioned the matter before the Chief Justice Bench. He unsuccesfully requested the Bench to urgently list the matter. The matter has been listed for after the winter vacation.
