The Supreme Court of India gave a big verdict for Muslim divorced women.

According to Indian media, the Supreme Court dismissed a Muslim man’s plea challenging an order to pay alimony to a woman after divorce.

According to Indian media, a bench comprising Justice BV Nagarathna and Justice Augustine George Masih of the Supreme Court dismissed the Muslim man’s plea.

A bench of the Supreme Court of India clarified that the law of non-maintenance applies to all married women irrespective of their religion.

According to the Indian media, the court said in its decision that non-maintenance is not charity but the right of married women.

Justice BV Nagarathana pointedly remarked that some husbands are not aware of the fact that the wife who is the breadwinner is emotionally and otherwise dependent on the husband.

He said that the time has come when Indian men should recognize the role of the homemaker and his sacrifice.

According to Indian media, this historic decision came on the request of Mohammad Abdul Samad, who was ordered by the family court to pay monthly non-maintenance to his divorced wife.

Abdul Samad later challenged the court order but the Telangana High Court refused to interfere in the matter after which the petitioner approached the Supreme Court.
