Centre to end 'Triple Talaq' in upcoming winter session
New Delhi : Centre is likely to introduce a bill in upcoming Winter Session that will put an end to Triple Talaq practice, which was struck down by Supreme Court earlier this year, calling it 'unconstitutional'.
The dates for Winter Session are yet to be finalised but reports suggest that the Modi government is ready with the bill to end Triple Talaq.
As per reports a ministerial committee has been setup to frame a Law and the Government proposes to bring this legislation in the forthcoming session of Parliament.
Earlier this year, Supreme Court had called the practice 'unconstitutional' and had asked the government to formulate a new legislation within six months ending Triple Talaq.
The five-judge constitution bench headed by then Chief Justice of India (CJI) JS Khehar had come out with a split verdict. Justice Nariman, Justice Lalit and Justice Kurien opposed the view of Justice Nazir and Chief Justice of India JS Khehar and had dubbed the practice of Triple Talaq as unconstitutional and unislamic.
