Supreme Court strikes down triple talaq: Full text of the apex court's 395-page order
Here is the full text of the 395-page order in which the Supreme Court said that the practice of divroce through triple talaq among Muslims was void.
In a historic verdict, the Supreme Court on Tuesday said that the practice of divroce through triple talaq among Muslims was void, illegal and unconstitutional.
The apex court set aside the practice, saying that triple talaq was against the basic tenets of the Quran.
"In view of the different opinions recorded by a majority of 3:2, the practice of 'talaq-e-biddat' – triple talaq is set aside," PTI quoted the five-judge constitution bench as saying in its order.
While Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice S Abdul Nazeer were in favour of putting on hold for six months the practice of triple talaq and asking the government to come out with a law in this regard, Justices Kurian Joseph, RF Nariman and UU Lalit held it as violative of the Constitution.
The three judges also said the practice of divorce through triple talaq is manifestly arbitrary and violative of the Constitution and must be struck down.
