When a sensitive religious matter is raised in the court of a country which has the most vivid range of religious faith, the judgment should be made in a way that will be accepted by all or it all can result into a big riot. The Triple Talaq practice in the Muslim community was questioned to be an unfair deal to the women of the community, as just by saying, texting, or even tweeting talaq for three times, a spouse can put an end to their marriage.
Apparently, this was observed to be a matter of injustice as some of the women got divorced by their husband over a phone call, and even through text messages, making them run to court for justice.
Therefore, the Supreme Court of India has assigned a five-judge constitution bench which will be lead by Chief Justice of India, J S Khehar. The special thing about the bench is all the judges belong to different religious faiths, i.e., Sikh, Hindu, Muslim, Parsi and Christian.
Cases of divorce on Facebook, Facetime, Skype and even through text messages were seen which forced the Muslim women to approach the court for the injustice that was going on with them.
After many protests along with a plea by women of the Muslim community to ban the practice of Triple Talaq or the use of Talaq orally to divorce their spouse. The Supreme Court has now assigned a constitutional bench of five judges from five different religious faith. For a fair verdict which can be accepted by all.
This bench of judges will hear the plea against Triple Talaq tagged with six petitions by Khuran Sunnath Society, Shayara Bano, Aafreen Rehman, Gulshan Parveen, Ishrat Jahan and Atiya Sabri.
