Triple talaq: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi welcomes SC verdict

What Asaduddin Owaisi has to say about SC verdict on triple talaq Triple talaq: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi welcomes SC verdict

The All India Women's Democratic Association (AIDWA) also welcomed the judgement and said that it has always opposed the unilateral, arbitrary, irrevocable and instantaneous triple talaq, which has always adversely affected the lives of millions of Muslim women.

The two judges who were in favor of law asked the government to discuss the matter with some Muslim Organizations who interfere with government's constitutional rights to govern such affairs.

Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the decision was an indication of an emerging new India.

Last week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised the women who fought against the practice in his Independence Day speech.

"Welcome the Supreme Court decision setting aside instant #TripleTalaq". According to Justice Joseph, triple talaq was not an essential part of Islam and enjoys no protection of Article 25. "They can not be tested on grounds of violation of Article 14 or 25". "The Supreme Court verdict therefore can not be misused by the Government to try to interfere with personal laws through legislation", he said.

Muslims account for about 15% of India's 1.25 billion plus population with its many religions.

Women activists and women's rights organisations today hailed the Supreme Court verdict on triple talaq and termed it as a "historic step" in the empowerment of women.

He lived the American dream
Writer-actor Marlon Wayans, Will & Grace's Sean Hayes and stand-up comedian Dane Cook referred to Lewis as a hero and mentor. Lewis, at right, joined late singer and actor Dean Martin to become a comic duo of worldwide fame early in their careers.

As the law ministry officials put it, the SC's majority judgment has already made it clear that triple talaq is unconstitutional and illegal. If it was said once, iddat was pronounced until the woman found another husband to Wednesday. In Arsenal, it has left the task of bringing legislation to the Muslim divorce. "This is important in reassuring the Muslim community that it's not a judgment motivated in any manner by Hindu triumphalism".

Many Muslim husbands have used triple talaq to divorce their wives via text message, Skype and WhatsApp.

Shayara Bano was the first petitioner in the case. Overall, after seeing that this tradition of divorce is being very diplomatic and people are suing it for the selfish benefits finally today our supreme court took the charge and knocked down this whole tradition.

The statement further read that the "verdict is an affirmation of the rights of women and gives relief to them against being subjected to discrimination by a practice that had been perverted over the years".

"I was beaten and thrown out of the house".

Zakia Soman, the co-founder of the Indian Muslim Women's Movement, stated that ruling marks a historic achievement for the women of Indian. It violates the basic rights of women.
