Supreme Court's verdict on triple talaq out

Supreme Court's verdict on triple talaq out

In a landmark judgment, the SC has struck down triple talaq calling it unconstitutional and against the basic tenets of Quran.Three out of five judges said that triple talaq violates the fundamental right of Muslim women as they are subjected to arbitrary irrevocable divorce without any chance of reconciliation. Triple talaq is considered ‘sinful’ but permissible in Islamic law.

एक ऐतिहासिक फैसले में, सर्वोच्च न्यायालय ने तीन तलाक़ को असंवैधानिक और कुरान के बुनियादी सिद्धांतों के खिलाफ बुलाते हुए उस पर रोक लगा दी है। पांच न्यायाधीशों में से तीन ने कहा कि ट्रिपल तलाक मुस्लिम महिलाओं के मौलिक अधिकारों का उल्लंघन करता है क्योंकि इसमें उन्हें सुलह का मौक़ा दिए बिना ही मनमाने अपरिवर्तनीय तलाक के अधीन किया जाता है। इस्लामी कानून में तीन तालक को 'पापमय' लेकिन स्वीकार्य माना जाता है।
