Reacting to the Supreme Court majority judgment striking down the practice of instant talaq, he said, "Judicial pronouncements and law...experience tells us that what is needed is that society should reform. Reform on the ground should come from society."

He asked whether the courts will bring in social reforms which the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) was doing on the ground.
