Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind on Triple talaq: 'SC verdict is against Islamic Shariyat'

New Delhi :  

Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind on Wednesday expressed their concerns on the verdict given by the Supreme Court on Triple Talaq on Tuesday.

The organisation said the verdict is against the Islamic Shariyat and it is a matter of great concern for the Muslim community.

On Tuesday, the Apex Court had banned the 1,400 year-old practice of instant 'triple talaq' among Sunni Muslims and set it aside on several grounds including that it was against the basic tenets of the Holy Quran and violated the Islamic law Shariat.

A five-judge Constitution bench, by a majority of 3:2 in which the Chief Justice J S Khehar found himself in a minority, had said in a one line order: "In view of the different opinions recorded by a majority of 3:2, the practice of'talaq-e-biddat' triple talaq is set aside."

The three separate verdicts totalling 395 pages, written for the majority by Justices Kurian Joseph and R F Nariman, did not concur with the minority view of the CJI and Justice S A Nazeer that 'triple talaq' was a part of religious practice and the government should step in and bring in a law.
