New Delhi: The reaction to the verdict of Triple Talaq has been varied and interesting. 2017 has witnessed one of the greatest social reforms of the times. This was a historic hearing, and one of the most awaited one, on the fate of millions of Muslim women across the country. The Supreme Court on Tuesday held triple talaq being practised by the Muslim community as "unconstitutional", "arbitrary" and "not part of Islam".
A five judge constitutional bench by a 3:2 majority judgement said there is no constitutional protection for triple talaq.
