Triple Talaq case ! Five judges five assent.


Five judges from five different communities heard the triple talaq case in the Supreme Court. They are Chief Justice JS Khehar (Sikh), Justices Kurian Joseph (Christian), RF Nariman (Parsi), UU Lalit (Hindu) and Abdul Nazeer (Muslim).
The Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar is hearing seven petitions, including five separate writ petitions filed by Muslim women, challenging the practice of triple talaq prevalent in the community and terming it unconstitutional. The apex court had on its own taken cognizance of the question whether Muslim women faced gender discrimination in the event of divorce or due to other marriages by their husbands.
Today, the SC will deliver verdict on whether the Muslim practice of triple talaq is in line with the Constitution and fundamental to Islam. On May 15, the apex court refused to hear all the three cases of polygamy, nikah and halala together, saying “it will focus on one matter at a time.”
