Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday hailed as "historic" the Supreme Court ruling on triple talaq and said it grants equality to Muslim women.

"Judgment ... is historic. It grants equality to Muslim women and is a powerful measure for women empowerment," Modi tweeted.

The Supreme Court by a 3:2 majority judgment held triple talaq being practised by the Muslim community as "unconstitutional", "arbitrary" and "not part of Islam".
