New Delhi: After asserting that Triple Talaq cannot be branded as unconstitutional, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) counsel Kapil Sibal on Tuesday said the Supreme Court should be hearing the matter in the first place.


The argument began when Sibal said that the apex court should not decide or interfere in one's faith and belief.


To this Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, one of the five judges constituting the bench asked, if they should not hear the matter at all.


"Yes, you should not hear," replied Sibal.


Earlier today, Sibal asked the Supreme Court how a 1400-year-old practice be branded 'unconstitutional'.

"Triple talaq is going on since 1400 years, how can you say it is unconstitutional?" Sibal asked the apex court.


Sibal further argued that just like the Hindus' faith about Rama's birth at Ayodhya cannot be questioned, similarly Triple Talaq which is also a matter of faith for Muslims should not be questioned.
