Allahabad High Court
The Allahabad High Court has termed the Islamic practice of divorcing a woman by uttering the word ‘talaq (Talaq-e-bidat)’ thrice as unconstitutional. The order was passed by single judge bench of Justice Suneet Kumar while deciding two separate writ petitions that the triple talaq practice, sanctioned under Muslim personal law that governs marriage, property and divorce – violated the rights of Muslim women. The High Court held that this form of instant divorce is cruel and most demeaning which impedes and drags India from becoming a nation.
