Supreme Court passes big judgement on alimony for divorced Muslim women

New Delhi/IBNS: The Supreme Court on Wednesday passed a big judgement on divorced Muslim women's right to receive alimony from their ex-husbands, media reports said.

The top court stated divorced Muslim women can seek alimony under Section 125.

The court says Section 125 is applicable to all married women irrespective of religion.

Personal law can't override secular law, said the court.

The court passed the judgement junking a Muslim man's plea challenging a direction to pay alimony to his divorced wife.

Justice BV Nagarathna, who was one of the two judges to pass the order, said as quoted by NDTV, "We are hereby dismissing the criminal appeal with the major conclusion that Section 125 would be applicable to all women and not just married women."

"Some husbands are not conscious of the fact that the wife, who is a homemaker, is dependent on them emotionally and in other ways. The time has come when the Indian man must recognise a homemaker's role and sacrifice," he added.
