His comments came at a time the Supreme Court is hearing petitions challenging the practice of triple talaq and the Muslim Personal Law Board is of the opinion that the judiciary has nothing to do with the issue.

"The day we start working by remaining within the ambit of the Constitution, the situation of conflict and collision will not occur". We should try to solve this issue at the district level. Muslim scholars and jurists argue that concurrent talaq or triple talaq in one go has never been approved by Prphet Mohammad (peace be upon him), during the tenure of first Caliph Abu Bakr (RA) and the first two years of Caliph Omar's caliphate.

Reacting sharply, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) termed Adityanath's remark as "jaahilaanaa" (foolish). Triple talaq is wrong, and the also the tendency to remain silent on this issue.

Triple talaq comes under the Sharia law that gives a man the right to end a marriage by verbally saying "Talaq" thrice to his wife.
