The Supreme Court has declared a landmark verdict on the much debated case of abolishing ‘triple talaq’. Deeming it unconstitutional, the Apex court has banned the use of ‘talaq’ for the next six months till the parliament passes a legislation. Panel headed by Chief justice JS Khehar heard seven petitions, including 5 separate writ petitions. And the verdict was delivered by the panel which comprised of judges from five major faiths.The present government has pushed the need for a uniform civil code, claiming that ‘triple talaq’ is unconstitutional and derogatory. The Centre had earlier also told the bench that it would come out with a law if ‘triple talaq’ is held unconstitutional. Post the recent hearing by the SC, the ball is now in the parliament’s court to make laws accordingly.
