The Supreme Court Has Officially Barred The Triple Talaq...

And it's about bloody time.

For ages, the Muslim law that allows men to divorce their wives with a three-time utterance of the word 'Talaq' (divorce) has been an ethical bone of contention. There's absolutely no question about how far it is from being even remotely feminism-inclined.

In a judgment this morning by a bench of five judges of different religious faiths, the Triple Talaq law was called archaic and "illegal", and deemed "not integral to religious practice and violating constitutional morality" in a press interview.

This law has finally been contested, and been declared void by the five judge bench consisting of Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar, Justice Kurian Joseph, Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, Justice Uday Umesh Lalit and Justice S Abdul Nazeer who heard out the case in mid-May earlier this year.

The eons-old practice was finally challenged by a number of women who were divorced with consult or their consent (even over mediums like Skype!).

While there was a difference of opinion between what should and should not qualify under secular freedoms of a democracy, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board itself described the practice as "sinful," and clarified that it had no sanction of the Quran and the Shariat.

While a law is yet to be officially affected, it has been denounced as derogatory to women by the court, and that is a glass-shattering moment (and a colossal milestone) as well. We can only hope it sees the light of justice.
