Triple Talaq has no place in a civilised soxiety

The verdict of five Judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court of India headed by Chief Justice J.S.Khehar  declaring the practice of Triple Talaq' as unconstitutional and it militates against the basic tenets of Islam is historic. It is a huge triumph for Muslim Women who have been waging an relentless legal  battle  for  years with a sole objective of putting an end to arbitrary divorce practice of Triple Talaq on the ground. While the judgement deserves praise considering its positive impact on our march towards building a society where gender equality is a reality, much needs to be done to eliminate entrenched societal, religious and cultural norms perpetuating gender discriminatory practices on the ground. With the Supreme court providing six month period for the Union government to enact a law on Triple Talaq  by factoring in the concerns  of Muslim community and Shariat law,  it is hoped the Union government will leave no stone unturned and enact a legislation within the prescribed time frame set by the higher judiciary to ensure gender justice for Muslim women in the country.
