A Supreme Court bench comprising of 5 judges from 5 faiths headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar announced its judgment on the controversial Muslim practice of triple talaq on Tuesday, upholding its earlier verdict and saying that Parliament must introduce a legislation concerned with the same.
CJI JS Khehar said that Talaq-e-biddat is an integral part of Sunni community practiced since 1000 years.
Triple Talaq is the Muslim process of divorce where a husband can divorce his wife simply by saying the word 'talaq' thrice. The matter reached the apex court after various petitions from Muslim women that the triple talaq method of divorce was being used unfairly against them.
The hearings began on May 11, during which the court clarified that it would only deliberate whether the practice of 'triple talaq' was part of an “enforceable” fundamental right to practice religion among Muslims and not on the practice of polygamy.
