The practice of “Triple Talaq” has been controversial since a long time now. However, the Supreme Court has finally barred this practice and has asked the Center to bring a law with regards to this. A 6-month hold has been put on this practice as of now, so that the parliament gets time to enact a law.
A bench of 5 judges ruled out this decision in 3:2 majority that Triple Talaq is “Unconstitutional” and “Illegal”. Supreme Court was of the opinion that if Islamic countries can abolish the law, even India can act accordingly.
If the parliament doesn’t form any law within 6 months. Supreme Court’s injunction on Triple Talaq will continue. As soon as Supreme Court passed its verdict, here’s how Twitter reacted:
Judgment of the Hon’ble SC on Triple Talaq is historic. It grants equality to Muslim women and is a powerful measure for women empowerment.

‘Triple Talaq is not in the Quran’— is it the reason for it to go? There’re many injustices & inequalities in the Quran. Should they stay?

I don’t know if it is contempt of court, But I am ashamed that the Cheif Justice of India gave logic in support of Triple Talaq. #UtterShame
