Modi Government, Not Rajiv Gandhi's: Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad After Triple Talaq Verdict
More than a dozen Muslim-majority countries have banned triple talaq, including Iran and Pakistan, but it has persisted in India because there is no uniform set of laws governing marriage, inheritance and divorce.
The judges in the minority verdict said that if the Centre does not bring a law within six months, then its injunction on triple talaq will continue. "We knew the court was in no mood to allow triple talaq", its general secretary Maulana Mohammad Wali Rehmani said. In the strongest ever censure against the practice, the Board had also called for "social boycott" of the person who divorces his wife by pronouncing triple talaq in one sitting. Justices Kurian Joseph, RF Nariman and UU Lalit held triple talaq as violative of the Constitution. The Ala Hazrat said that the judgment was not in accordance with the provisions of the Shariat. There were some who were reluctant...even though many, particularly the women in the community, have shown great support for abolishing it,"he said". The urge for religious reform should have originated in the Muslim community itself. It should also be noted that the dissenting view in the judgement, which held that it was part of the personal law, also wanted a law to be passed to ban the practice.
He further disagreed with CJI Khehar that triple talaq has to be considered integral to the religious denomination in question and part of their personal law.
The SC, which began hearing petitions challenging the practice on May 11, had reserved its verdict on May 18. In India, for every divorced Muslim man, there are four divorced Muslim women, IndiaSpend reported on 15 October, 2016, analysing Census 2011 data.
Supreme Court Rules Triple Talaq Unconstitutional
The Supreme Court's verdict on triple talaq is a strong step which will curb this unconstitutional and arbitrary practice, Ficci Ladies Organisation (FLO) said today.
India's Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked the use of a Muslim divorce law until the government frames new legislation, a partial victory for Muslim women who had long argued that the rule violated their right to equality.
