India's Top Court Says Muslim Practice of Instant Divorce Is Unconstitutional

"We had asked for a Muslim Marriage Act and the apex court has told the union government to do the same", says Shaista Amber, chairperson, All India Muslim Women's Personal Law Board, in an interview to Times of India.

Triple Talaq started trending after the Supreme Court banned the practice in India on Tuesday. An Indian Muslim woman filed the case in Supreme Court.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has welcomed the Supreme Court's ruling on Triple Talaq saying it is justice given to the women who have been shunned by their husbands because of wrong interpretation of Islamic laws.

It has thus been struck down in effect.

Keep that in mind before freaking out about "facial animations" and "immersion". Of course, this is an early build, that too a small piece of it.

The five-judge bench, comprising of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justices Kurian Joseph, RF Nariman, UU Lalit and Abdul Nazeer, delivered a split verdict, with the CJI being in dissent.

It is worth mentioning here that the SC bench that gave this historical verdict consisted of judges from five different religions.

According to a NDTV report, a panel of five judges said that triple talaq "is not integral to religious practice and violates constitutional morality".

During the hearing, the top court observed that the practice of triple talaq was the "worst" and "not a desirable" form of dissolution of marriage among Muslims, even though there were schools of thought which called it "legal".

Family matters for the vast nation's many communities are governed by their religious traditions, making the Supreme Court's ruling in the eyes of some Muslims an intrusion in their affairs. They said that they will first read the judgement and appeal against it. Thus, the woman had won the case by 3:2 and the court have banned this method of divorce. "I congratulate the women who fought for justice".

"The practice is an issue of faith and personal law, and the courts of law have no role in reviewing it", said Mufti Israr Ahmad, a Muslim scholar. Muslim women, too, have respect. "We need to pay attention to how the decision is implemented". But the Supreme Court has ended the practice.

"Merely because a practice has continued for long, that by itself can not make it valid if it has been expressly declared to be impermissible".

Dubbing it as a "path-breaking judgement", Rohatgi said the stand of the government was "completely vindicated" and the judgement has restored the dignity of the Muslim women who can now march to progress like other citizens of the country.
