Years and years, the word 'Talaq' has been used by the Muslims to seek divorce. It was only after in 2016 after a petition was filed by Shayara Bano that the issue came back to the fore. Tuesday morning, a historical step was taken by the Supreme Court when it struck down the Triple Talaq practice as 'unconstitutional'.
A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) J.S. Khehar announced the verdict. Justice Nariman, Justice Lalit and Justice Kurien opposed the view of Justice Nazir and Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar and dubbed the practice of Triple Talaq as unconstitutional and unislamic.
Soon after the decision came, the Twitter got erupted with a lot of reactions. Check out how the people reacted on the verdict and the matter.
