BJP, AAP welcome SC triple talaq judgement

The five-judge constitution bench, comprising five judges of five faiths - Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism and Zoroastrianism- was split 3:2 as it struck down triple talaq as unconstitutional.

The All India muslim personal law board (AIMPLB) has convened the meeting of its executive committee at Bhopal on September 10 to chalk out its future course of action with regard to the Supreme Court's verdict on triple talaq. While laws must be framed in accordance with the Shariat, one must also take into account the concerns of the women, he said. Those events led to the Supreme Court's decision this week that the Islamic practice of instant divorce is unconstitutional.

In the Shah Bano case, the legislature overrode the Supreme Court's verdict that a Muslim ex-husband would have to make continued maintenance payments to his divorced wife in addition to maintenance for a three-month iddat period after divorce required under the Islamic law.

He described the judgment as the "beginning of a new epoch for women to live with self-respect".

"Triple talaq is not integral to religious practice and violates constitutional morality", said the court. We want a strong legislation against triple talaq...

The former minister brought out the flaws of instant Talaq and insisted how a married woman could be on the streets just due to her husband saying Talaq three times.

Cristiano Ronaldo labels five-match La Liga ban as "incomprehensible"
The Portuguese forward will now miss this weekend's match at home to Valenica, as well as games against Levante and Real Sociedad. Six days ago, Ronaldo took to Instagram to say he was being persecuted after his red card in the Spanish Super Cup.

BJP chief Amit Shah on Tuesday said the Supreme Court's ban on the controversial practice of triple talaq is a "historic decision", and praised the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government for effectively presenting the case of Muslim women in the top court. The Muslim women never came ahead to object since there were many constraints.

Chief Justice J.S. Khehar, who is due to retire later this month, was a dissenting voice.

Ms Bano, who suffered a nervous breakdown after her divorce, said it was a "historic occasion" for Muslim women.

Even those who disagree with the BJP's saffron ideology will agree that a common civil code, which doesn't discriminate between religions, is not only appropriate but necessary in a polity which deems itself to be a secular republic.

They urged that before enacting a law, the government must solicit the views and opinion of all sections of the community. Most Islamic countries do not follow the practice. While most Hindu personal laws have been overhauled and codified over the years, Muslim laws have been left to religious authorities and left largely untouched.
