India's Supreme Court has formally opened hearings into a number of petitions challenging the controversial practice of instant divorce in Islam.

The court said it would examine whether the practice known as "triple talaq" was fundamental to the religion.

India is one of a handful of countries in the world where a Muslim man can divorce his wife in minutes by saying the word talaq (divorce) three times.

"Despite the Supreme Court having declared the practice void in August last year, activists on the ground confirm that it continues unabated.

If the bill is voted into a law, men found guilty of divorcing their wives through "triple talaq" could face jail time of up to three years."

The 21st century's resurgent India is still struggling to ensure the freedom of its women from the patriarchal bias that continues to manifest itself in the form of virginity tests, female genital mutilation, the denial of basic health and hygiene.
