SC:Triple talaq is worst and undesirable

Supreme Court today said the practice of triple talaq was the worst and undesirable form of dissolution of marriages among Muslims, even though there were schools of thought which termed it as legal.

This observation came on the second day of continued hearing on the matter, when former Union Minister and senior advocate Salman Khurshid, who is assisting the court in his personal capacity, told the bench that it is not an issue where judicial scrutiny is required and moreover women have the right to say no to triple talaq by stipulating a condition to this effect in ‘nikahnama’.

The court asked Mr Khurshid to prepare a list of Islamic and non-Islamic countries where triple talaq has been banned.

The bench was then informed that countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Morocco and Saudi Arabia do not allow triple talaq as a form to dissolve marriages.
