Embrace triple talaq verdict
Instant divorce is deplorable, disgraceful, and shameful. It is demeaning, demonising, and disheartening to Indian Muslim women.
On August 22, the Supreme Court ruled that triple talaq -- the practice which allows a man to divorce his wife instantly by saying the word talaq thrice -- is unconstitutional. Predictably, the ruling was denounced by a number of Muslim leaders and organisations. Some interpreted it as an attack on their religion and way of life. Others saw a conspiracy angle in the importance given to an issue.
