India’s court banned a religious concept by Muslims that permit men to divorce their wives by saying three times talaq.
Many Muslims believe that divorce is done by saying three times Talaq, which is not so true. So the victims of “triple talaq” men, came for help to Supreme Court and demanded a ban to this practice.
The panel of Supreme Court judge said that triple talaq “is not integral to religious practice and violates constitutional morality.”
There were five judges in the panel from all faiths, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, and Zoroastrianism.
The decision said that it was “manifestly arbitrary” to permit a man to “break down (a) marriage whimsically and capriciously”.
“What is sinful under religion cannot be valid under law,” was the final verdict.
Lower courts have challenged this decision but for the first time, Supreme Court has taken a stand in India that triple talaq is illegal.
Religious institutions in India have been allowed to tackle matters related to marriage, divorce, and property. They have further enhanced triple talaq belief. Now finally the PM of India Narendra Modi has accepted and backed the court’s decision, declaring triple talaq as illegal.
Now, this issue is not just in India, it is in Pakistan as well. Men believe that saying Talaq three times, put an end to their union with their wife. The belief has strengthened by media and how divorce is portrayed in it. Without challenging your beliefs, the advice is to read before you act. Know about your religion instead of blindly following the crowd.
