Allahabad, 8 Dec 2016 : The Allahabad High Court on Thursday ruled that Triple Talaq was unconstitutional.

A high court bench said the concept violated human rights and that personal law of any community cannot be placed above the Constitution.

“Triple Talaq violates the rights of Muslim women,” the bench said.

“No personal law board is above the Constitution,” the bench said, in an apparent reference to the All India Muslim Personal Law Board that favours Triple Talaq.

“Even the Holy Quran terms the practice a wrongful act,” the bench added.

Triple talaq is interpreted as the Islamic practice of divorcing a woman by uttering the word talaq thrice. Most Muslim countries do not approve of it.
