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.

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.
