An Islamic practice permitting men to instantly divorce their wives has been declared unconstitutional by India’s Supreme Court after decades of campaigning by women’s groups and victims.
The “triple talaq” has allowed Muslim men to dissolve marriages by pronouncing the word “divorce” three times.
The Supreme Court in Delhi took up the issue last year in response to a petition from seven victims and women’s groups. The Court declared this week that triple talaq was “not integral to religious practice and violates constitutional morality”.
