Most newspapers have prominently covered the All India Muslim Personal Law Board's challenge to the Supreme Court's initiative to judicially examine Islamic personal laws relating to marriage and divorce. "Men more judicious, so can use triple talaq; Ban on polygamy encourages illicit sex, Muslim Law Body tells SC" reads a headline in the Times of India, while under the caption, "Triple talaq prevents men from killing wives: Muslim law board to SC", the Indian Express writes that defending the validity of triple talaq, the Muslim Law Body has said that if the practice is discontinued, a man could murder or burn his wife alive to get rid of her."
Newspapers have also reported the strike by trade unions in different parts of the country. "20,000 nurses strike work, Esma invoked" says the Times of India while the Hindu writes, "Strike by trade unions shuts down Kerala, Tripura ; Banking transactions across the country hit".
Just days after Yogeshwar Dutt's London Olympics bronze was upgraded to silver, the star Indian wrestler's medal may now get converted into gold with champion Toghrul Asgarov also returning positive for banned substance, writes the Statesman.
"Kerala to Nagaland: Mother set to visit grave, 24 years later" - The Indian Express says that 24 years after her son, Second Lieutenant E T Joseph, laid down his life fighting militants in Nagaland, Thressiamma Joseph is set to make her way from Kottayam in Kerala to Chakabama in Nagaland to visit her son's grave for the first time.
And finally, The Times of India reports that engineers have created clothing for a warming world - a fabric that allows your body heat to escape far better than other materials do.
