The Supreme Court issued a ruling on July 7, 2014, that has triggered a new discussion regarding the Shariah and its implications.
The gist of this ruling is that fatwas issued by Darul Ifta or Darul Qaza have no legal sanction and no place in India’s constitutional scheme.
I think this ruling is right. It does not go against the Shariah. If anything, it goes against those who are running institutions in the name of the Shariah.
