“Welcome the Supreme Court decision setting aside instant Triple Talaq. I congratulate the women who fought for justice,” he tweeted.
The Congress party has welcomed the Supreme Court's verdict setting aside the practice of divorce through 'talaq-e-bidat' among Muslims, saying it was an "affirmation of women rights" and would give them relief from discrimination.
Chief Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the apex court quashed the practice of instant triple talaq or 'talaq-e-bidat', which by itself was "an aberration and adulteration" of talaq.
