The Supreme Court’s verdict on triple talaq is a strong step which will curb this unconstitutional and arbitrary practice, Ficci Ladies Organisation (FLO) said today. “As a women organisation, we stand for women empowerment and this judgement is a strong step towards curbing the unconstitutional and arbitrary triple talaq practice, which is a huge obstacle in the path of enabling Muslim women to live life with dignity,” FLO President Vasvi Bharat Ram said. She said in a statement that this is a commendable step towards Muslim women’s right and equality. She added that the government must now ensure that the judgement is enforced as a law as soon as possible.

FLO is the women business wing of the Federation of Indian chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI). The Supreme Court by a majority verdict yesterday set aside the practice of divorce through triple talaq among Muslims, saying the practice was void, illegal and unconstitutional. The practice of instant triple talaq enabled the husband to unilaterally terminate the matrimonial relationship without a cause.

    Without going into more details , it can be said that the judgement has heralded a new chapter in the lives of Muslim women of India. Readers may like to know this Vedic astrology writer’s prophesy for women in India during April to July and nearby in 2017, in article “ 2017 - an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February –March and August-September” issued widely to Indian news media last year in October and November 2016. Reproducing the text from the article here : - “ Both these parts from April to December present opportunities and realization of those opportunities to an extent. But the last five months appear to be comparatively not as opportune as April to July or nearby. Certain encouraging or positive things could likely take shape in national scene. WOMEN HAVE SOMETHING FOR THEM TO CHEER UP”. So the prediction has been precisely accurate and meaningful.
