The prevalence of personal laws has always been the used as a reasoning behind violation of fundamental rights of the citizens in order to comply with their religious norms. This paper shall make an attempt to critically examine muslim personal laws where the primary focus shall be on anonymous rights given to the husbands in the context of divorce on the account of suppressing that of the muslim wives. Both marital obligations and divorce obligations in muslim law are studied. And then recommendations are made about how to protect the rights of wives as well as respect the freedom of each religion and hence striking a balance between both the genders.
