Triple talaq issue is related to social reform says Naqvi

The triple talaq issue is not related to religion but social reform, Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said here on Tuesday, adding that the Modi government would discuss with all political parties on framing a law on the matter.

Naqvi welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court that banned instant divorce.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday held triple talaq being practised by the Muslim community as “unconstitutional”, “arbitrary” and “not part of Islam”. A five judge constitutional bench by a 3:2 majority judgement said there is no constitutional protection for triple talaq.
