Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday welcomed the Supreme Court’s verdict on triple talaq. Speaking to ABP News, he said that it would have been good if it was a unanimous decision. Yogi said that the central government has clarified its stance in the court on the issue. He said that this is a good start and the result will be good. A five-judge constitutional bench by a 3:2 majority ruled that the practice of divorce through triple talaq among Muslims is “void”, “illegal” and “unconstitutional”. The majority verdict said any practice including triple talaq which is against the tenets of Quran in unacceptable.

The three judges also said the practice of divorce through triple talaq is manifestly arbitrary and violative of the Constitution and must be struck down, reported PTI. “Finally I feel free today. I have the order that will liberate many Muslim women,” Shayara Bano, one of the women who brought the case, told Reuters after the ruling. Triple talaq is banned in several Muslim countries, including in neighbouring Pakistan, Bangladesh and conservative Saudi Arabia.
